Hangame, separated and independent from NHN, starts reconstructing the organization as a developing focused company. The company starts the open competitive employment and will hire about 100 experienced developers.
According to the posting of a job opening, Hangame will focus heavily on developing mobile games. Hangame released mobile games from the last year. Fish Island achieved $3.23 million monthly revenue without KAKAO Talk.
This move is an action from Hangame in response to the recent platform change in the game market – PC online to mobile. The mobile game revenue of Hangame was $6.92 million, which surpassed the revenue from PC online games and Web based games. Hangame also has a brother company OrangeCrew, a mobile focused developer.
With the success of LINE, mobile messenger, Hangame is expecting a great synergy effect.
