Company description

Led by former senior execs from Sony Online Entertainment and Nielsen, First Post creates new social games and apps for a variety of platforms, such as IPhone, Android, Facebook and Windows. We are creating our own "transmedia" IP, and are particularly focused on the emerging mobile market where 2 of every 3 people who own a smartphone play games.

In just four months, First Post already has Sony, Marvel and TMobile as clients, and we are profitable!
