Founded in 2007, by a small development team in San Francisco, MindJolt was acquired in 2010 by former MySpace founders and Social Media innovators Chris DeWolfe, Aber Whitcomb, Colin Digiaro with Josh Yguado, a former Fox executive. In April of 2011, MindJolt doubled down on their mobile efforts with the acquisition of SGN a pioneering developer and publisher of social mobile games with a reputation for console quality graphics and sophisticated gameplay. In that same month, MindJolt acquired HallPass media, a leading network of web-based free-to-play casual gaming sites.

Funded by the Private Equity firm Austin Ventures, with over $4 Billion in assets, MindJolt today is one of the largest, independent gaming companies, with offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
