Our Story


The original Big Huge Games was founded in 2000 with the mission of building world-class strategy games. Through twelve wonderful years and several award-winning hits, Big Huge Games built a team that felt more like family than a means to a paycheck. In 2012 the company closed its doors. With many tears the team dispersed around the world to pursue new opportunities…


Fast-forward to 2013, when several veterans from the original Big Huge founded a new company to create the next generation of deep, well-crafted mobile games. We were excited by the opportunity to carry on the legacy of the original name. With deepest respect for everyone touched by the magic of the original studio, we are honored to bear the torch of the original Big Huge Games: Make great games, and have a great place to come to work every day!


On April 1, 2015, we successfully launched our flagship title, DomiNations.


In 2016, we were acquired by our publisher, Nexon. We now operate as a subsidiary of Nexon, retaining our name, culture, and sharing with them our design philosophy that great games take time and iteration.
