Hi and welcome to the first Miniclip Roundup! In these blog posts, we’ll bring you a look at our hottest games this month, plus news, videos, cool stuff that you’ve made, plus what’s been going on in the Miniclip offices. It’s your chance to get a look inside the inner workings of Miniclip, and also ask us anything that’s on your mind – get involved in the Comments section below!
Let’s start with some of our favourite games of this month.
“So, I’ve got this friend… he’s an amateur triathlete and he’s just qualified for a place at the World Ironman Championships in Hawaii, where he has to run 26.2 miles (42km), then swim 2.4 miles (4km) and finish with a 112 mile (180km) cycle! But he’s got to raise some cash to get there. Any chance Miniclip can help him?”
This was pretty much how it all started a few months back, when we embarked on our sponsorship of Raphael Vorpe, a 30-year-old triathlete from the Bernese Jura region of Switzerland.
Miniclip today has over 100 million players every month, our game library extending beyond 800 titles, and almost 200 employees across our offices in the UK, Portugal, Switzerland the USA. In our new Tech Blog series, written by our DevOps Manager Dave Shanker, we’ll take a look at the challenges faced – and overcome – in growing Miniclip from its origins to what it is today.
