Homa has acquired RisingHigh Academy to provide innovative content and resources for mobile game developers.
After we raised 50M$ Series A in October 2021, Homa's team continued to expand. We are now more than 100 people in the company, and there were more than 500 million game downloads. The acquisitions continue to be a big part of Homa's strategy. In November 2021, Homa acquired Ducky Games studio to reinforce our in-house capabilities. In addition, today, we welcome Kevin Wolstenholme to the team—the creator of RisingHigh Academy—to offer the users more resources on successful games launch.
After team RisingHigh had their first 11 games featured by Apple, Kevin decided to create a course to share the secrets of a successful game launch—realizing that a course would quickly become outdated in the fast-moving mobile landscape, they continued to create weekly content, and the RisingHigh Academy was born.
RisingHigh Academy—Taking the game design to the next level
Today, the RisingHigh Academy is a first-class community of over 800 mobile game developers boasting the world's biggest library of training content.
The platform offers game design courses, online level design workshops, leading publisher insights, an exclusive private community, and a weekly Hypercasual (HC) game design show deconstructing the latest trends and best practices.
The Academy already has many successful members achieving double-digit Apple Homepage game features and multiple huge publishing deals.
The success of the RisingHigh Academy could not go unrecognized, so Homa decided to launch their academy with the help of Kevin's experience and knowledge.
Homa aims to create the most active and supportive HC gaming community with the RisingHigh Team.
