Company description

Raptr is a Silicon Valley based startup that has built a revolutionary social games platform to change the way people play and discover games they like and share their gaming experiences with friends. Raptr makes gaming more fun and social by automatically sharing your gaming achievements and stats with friends while putting an end to the frustrating process of finding and downloading game patches and updates.

Acting as a "Windows Update for games," the Raptr client keeps your games up to date seamlessly using background downloads and a lightweight interface. Raptr automatically tracks your gaming stats and achievements and shares them with your friends. With Raptr, you can see what your friends are playing, what they've recently downloaded, and how they're doing in those games. Raptr also enables you to receive recommendations for new games you might like or meet players who share similar gaming tastes. Raptr is the home for your gaming life.

Founded in 2007 by Xfire co-founder and world champion gamer Dennis Fong, Raptr is backed by several million dollars in funding from an all-star group of investors.
