We advised Nordcurrent, one of the largest video game developers and publishers in Lithuania, on the acquisition of Ukrainian game development company Rin Games.

Rin Games is well-known as the strongest game arts team in Ukraine. Most of its employees are graphic designers and artists.

Plans further development in Ukraine

Before this acquisition, Nordcurrent had been cooperating with Rin Games for eight years. During this time, Rin Games contributed to seven games developed by Nordcurrent: Sky Crew, World of Food and more. Rin Games is currently working on a new time management game Happy Clinic, which is being tested in a number of different countries. The global launch of the game is expected at the end of January next year.

“This acquisition is a planned and strategic development for us. We value our reliable partners from Dnieper and are glad that they have fully joined the Nordcurrent family. We believe that in the future we will expand even more in Ukraine. Partners in this country are perfect for us, both in terms of their culture and in terms of attitude and energy. This is very important for building a successful international gaming company,” says Viktorija Trofimova, CEO of Nordcurrent.

This is the second Nordcurrent acquisition in Ukraine. In 2018 we advised Nordcurrent on the acquisition of the Odessa-based game development studio Blam! Games studios. Nordcurrent has developed more than 50 cross-platform games, which had more than 500 million downloads globally.

Our team and services

Our team, led by partner Sergej Butov and senior associate Matas Mačiulaitis, advised Nordcurrent on all matters related to the transaction.
