One of the biggest third-party social gaming companies in Japan (along Konami, gloops, Klab, etc.) is Tokyo-based gumi. The startup has just posted a pretty unusual and “open” announcement on its website.
According to the release, gumi generated a whopping 100 million Yen in virtual item sales across all its games – on a single day (100 million yen currently translates to US$1.3 million).
GREE is an investor in gumi, which boasts several titles in GREE’s top 20 ranking of the most popular games.
