Playfish is a social games company that develops and publishes video games on social networks like Facebook.

Founded in October 2007 by casual and mobile games veterans and backed by Accel Ventures and $4M in funding, we believe games are more fun when played with friends and family. So we are working on combining the best elements of casual games, social networks, MMOGs and virtual worlds to create entirely new, more social ways of enjoying great games together.

Playfish is headquartered in London, UK with offices in Beijing, China and Tromsø, Norway.
