About SGN and Couchbase
Social Gaming Network (SGN), producer of many successful mobile games, closed out 2014 by winning Facebook's Game of the Year for the international sensation and household app named, Cookie Jam. The wildly popular puzzle game earned this recognition after scaling to meet the demand of 5 million users globally in under 8 months. SGN and Couchbase teamed up in preparation for the huge spike in social and mobile hits once Cookie Jam had begun gaining traction, successfully avoiding downtime with the flexibility that Couchbase Server provides in rebalance and failover. The flexible JSON data model that Couchbase Server offers enabled SGN to define the data model and iterate without having to request and wait for schema changes. Today, SGN leverages Couchbase for several of their most popular games, including Panda Pop and Juice Jam, among others.
As the fastest growing mobile games studio in the west, SGN has produced hit titles such as Cookie Jam, Juice Jam, Book of Life: Sugar Smash and Panda Pop. To date, well over 700 million SGN games have been installed on leading mobile and social platforms, making SGN one of the largest cross-platform gaming companies in the world. SGN represents the next generation of social game development. SGN’s proprietary and patent-pending technology process, MasterKey, allows a game to be built once and seamlessly distributed to all platforms including Facebook, App Store, Google Play, and Amazon. Through its three-prong strategy of social, mobile, and web games SGN reaches players wherever they choose to play. SGN is responsible for more than a dozen Top 10 titles in the iTunes App Store and three #1 titles in the Amazon App Store. SGN’s hit game, Cookie Jam, was awarded Facebook Game of the Year in 2014.
