The Frogster group is a Berlin-based listed publisher of online games. Frogster focuses on the marketing and operation of MMO Games, one of the strongest growing sectors in the entertainment industry.

Frogster Interactive Pictures AG was founded in 2005 through a management buyout of the German subsidiary of a French game publisher. The MBO was conducted by Christoph Gerlinger, Frogster’s CEO, and Dirk Weyel (COO).

Between 2007 and 2008, Frogster underwent a strategy change, away from the traditional video games business and towards the online games business, which management regards as much more promising.

Frogster is the only listed German company to offer free-to-play MMO Games.

The current game portfolio includes the following titles:

  • Runes of Magic
  • Bounty Bay Online
  • The Chronicles of Spellborn
  • Stone Age 2
