GameSalad, Inc. is a new kind of game company that blends powerful, accessible, and rapid game creation technologies with independent publishing. GameSalad’s flagship product is GameSalad Creator, a game creation system for creative professionals. GameSalad enables non-programmers to create sophisticated 2D casual games for Apple’s mobile iOS platforms, such as the iPhone and iPad.

Games are a powerful means of human communication, a unique form of interactive expression that should be democratized so that anyone from any age or culture can participate. GameSalad looks to take part in the mobile computing revolution, as five billion cell phones across the world are replaced with a new generation of intelligent mobile devices. These devices will change the way people learn, consume, and play.

GameSalad, Inc. (formerly Gendai Games, Inc.) was founded in 2007 by Michael Agustin, Tan Tran, and Dan Treiman, who come from companies such as Apple, Hotels.com, and Epic Systems, and have shipped games for Activision and Three Rings Design.
