The Franco-American now claims 140 games in its catalog and had raised funds from Axa Private Equity to boost its international development.
BulkyPix, publisher and developer of video games and applications for smartphones and tablets, recently signed an agreement with RenRen Games, a Chinese mobile platform.
Through this partnership, RenRen Games will release 17 Android games from BulkyPix’s catalog. Among the titles concerned: CandyMeleon, Babel Rising: Cataclysm, Redneck Revenge: A Zombie Roadtrip and My Brute.
Founded in 2008, the publisher BulkyPix today claims more than 140 games in its catalog. For its part, the social network RenRen has more than 280 million subscribers, 70% of which are active players on the mobile platform.
