Games that are a blast to build and play.

It starts with a game, but it becomes more than that. Blastworks is a social game platform. We connect to our audiences. Identify their core interests. Anticipate what they like, what they want to play and who they want to play with. We match players and connect them to social experiences, building unique and lasting communities. Every game challenges. Every achievement offers rewards. Every player feels like a winner. Everyone shares the experience.

Some people call that the meta game. We just call it having a blast.
