About

11 years in the video game industry

Innova published its first online game in 2007, when the Russian gaming market was just starting out. As publishers of such well-known games as Lineage 2 and Aion, we influenced the field considerably. For all these years we have been constantly improving the quality of our service and developing expertise in the gaming industry.

55 000 000 registered users

In 2008 we launched our own gaming platform 4game with easy access to our projects in Russia and CIS. In 2011 4game also became available in Europe.

250 employees

We develop an extensive infrastructure around our games. For every project we create a team that takes on every task regarding the launch or support, from localization to marketing, from community management to billing process.

Among our games are MMO legends still popular among Russian players even 10 years after the release.

We strive to build long-term relationship with our audience and never resort to aggressive monetization. Instead, we maintain the players’ interest for our projects by organizing numerous online and offline events.

Since 2014 Innova also works with Russian and international mobile game developers. We feature mobile games of various genres: from captivating strategies to dynamic RPGs.
