The new cross-device, multi-genre games catalogue comprises titles from more than 60 international publishers, including Disney, Focus Home Interactive, Daedelic Entertainment, Milestone, Deep Silver, Crytek, Nacon and Gameloft. The award-winning line-up includes popular titles like "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II", "LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga", "Modern Combat 5: Blackout", "Minion Rush: Despicable Me", "LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures", "Farming Simulator 19", and "Ken Follett: The Pillars of the Earth". Blacknut was founded in 2016 and is headquartered in Brittany (Cesson-Sévigné). The company is currently active in more than 40 countries in Europe, Asia and North America.

According to Statista, mobile games constitute by far the biggest segment of the total video games market and have a huge growth potential for the coming years. Statista forecasts an annual growth rate of 10.02% (CAGR 2021-2025), resulting in a total projected market volume of US$160,639m by 2025.
