Bringing adrenaline & friendship to gamers as the best shooter on social platforms.
Cmune is the leading developer and publisher of real-time 3D social games. Its first title UberStrike is the largest shooter on Facebook and available on Mac, Windows, iPad and Android. Cmune was founded in 2007 and has offices in Beijing, Berlin and representation in San Francisco.
“Shaun and I met in Beijing when polishing our Chinese skills. He was previously running a design agency in Australia and had just written the reference book on the 3D engine Virtools; I had already two successful web startups under my belt in France and Macau. When the idea of Cmune formed around real-time 3D collaboration, it was clear we had to be global from day one!”
“We toyed with various prototypes and the one that got traction immediately was a tiny FPS. Had we known building a full-fledged shooter in the browser would be so hard, we might have done something else! Now that we have done it, we understand this is probably why there are so few successful games. Next stop: mobile!”
Cmune received funding from Atomico, the investment firm of Skype’s founders and a group of angel investors in the US and Asia.
“There are more users on Facebook and tablets than on console today, yet the games they can play lack the intensity they are used to. Between slinging birds, reaping crops and crossing words, there is a huge opportunity for action games.”
“Many games are like Coca-Cola. Our model is Red Bull.”
“Our players tell us that what sets UberStrike apart is its community. The activity going on and friendships formed there have been an incredible motivator for us, and one of the reasons players stay with us.”
