Company Profile

Game Development
  • Midcore games. These are more sophisticated, deeper and smarter than classic casual games, but aren't as large-scale as triple-A projects. The company releases 2–3 midcore projects per year. Major projects include Beholder series, Do Not Feed the Monkeys, Necrosmith, Wall World, and more.

  • Casual games. This is the longest-running area of development for Alawar. The company has released over 400 projects in genres such as time management, hidden object puzzle adventure (HOPA), and match-3. Alawar's casual games are available for Windows and MacOS. Major projects include The Treasures of Montezuma, Farm Frenzy, The House of the 1000 Doors, Golden Rails, and more.

  • Console games. Since 2010, Alawar has been porting its game brands to Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo consoles. The first original Alawar console game, Treasures of Montezuma Blitz, was released in 2012.


Alawar is an experienced international publisher of midcore and casual games for PC, consoles, mobile devices and other platforms. Since 1999, the company has released over 500 projects from more than 250 developers.

Alawar provides comprehensive expertise in financing, business analytics, expert assessment, localization, testing, marketing, and PR.
