Vasco Games which is located in Emmen has been singled out by Google as a ‘top developer’ in Google Play, the app store for Android. This makes the Drenthe-based company one of just five hundred top developers worldwide, and the second top developer in the Netherlands.
Vasco Games develops mobile games. Up until now the company’s more than 100 games have been downloaded over 500 million times. That is why Google has awarded the company the title of ‘top developer’.
Vasco Games mainly produces low-threshold simulation games. Most of the games can be downloaded free. The company earns its money by encouraging gamers to make in-game purchases.
Despite only having been active for about five years, the Emmen-based game developer is now employing fifty people at two locations, both in Emmen.
