Among them: company trips, afterworks, onboarding programs, hackathons, game jams, wellness events and more.
TapNation was born in 2019, founded by Hervé Montoute and Igor Zabukovec. With Bubble Sort released in November and Ice Cream Inc. in December, we quickly became a force to reckon with. Our games generated 2,5M downloads and 2,3M monthly active users this year, all with just a team of five. And this was only the beginning of a remarkable journey.

With 18 employees, we maintained a community of 16 million monthly active users, solidifying our position as a leading player in mobile gaming.
In 2021, TapNation reached new heights of success and expansion. We kicked off the year with the release of Giant Rush!, which swiftly became one of our most popular games. In September, we hosted our first TripNation event in Cassis, France, fostering camaraderie and creativity among our talented employees.

In 2022, TapNation accomplished remarkable achievements: launching our first Web3 projects, reaching 750M downloads, and hosting our second TripNation in Tenerife.
