Three Melons

Three Melons is a game studio that develops online games on free-to-play business models, both with original IP and well-established third party properties, designed for Advertising and Entertainment. It was founded in December 2005 by Mariano Suárez Battán, CEO and Patricio Jutard, CTO, with the support of angel investors.

The founders were recently selected as Endeavor Entrepreneurs.

The company started in the niche market of advergames (games for advertising), and during the last three years, has amassed an impressive clientele, developing games for advertisers and media companies such as Disney, Coca-Cola, MTV, Audi, Discovery Networks and LEGO. With award-winning advergames, such as LEGO’s Indiana Jones – which had 14 million unique users worldwide - Three Melons was ushered onto the international stage.

The company aims to make the world play short to mid session, easy to access, visually and gameplay rich multiplayer Web games in Flash and Unity3D.

Daiquiri, a Flash game development framework and Camarero, a multiplayer server and infrastructure, are the studio’s proprietary tools that empower the creation of the games.

The company is headquartered in Buenos Aires, Argentina and has a Business Development office in Los Angeles.
