Breathing New Life into Old Games

We believe in the games we take over and reinvigorate them to last for the long haul.

Who we are

Games as a Service

  • Indie Publisher

    DECA Games is an indie publisher completely focused on live operations and games as a service We take over and reinvigorate games as they age or when their original developer can no longer support them.
  • Experts

    Our team has worked on games that have topped the charts, won awards, and grossed hundreds of millions of dollars across PC, browser, and mobile platforms. We’ve also epically failed too many times to count. The vast experience of our team and our unique methodology is what sets us apart.
  • Community

    Our success depends on providing the loyal fans of our games a continual cycle of entertainment and excitement that creates a unique experience they can find nowhere else.
  • Trusted

    We believe games can last decades and we built our company and its approach around that belief. We treat your game and players with respect and you can be sure they will be in good hands with us.
  • History

    DECA was founded by Ken Go, who was the executive producer for Kingdoms of Camelot and built the live operations teams for Kabam’s studios before establishing and managing their European publishing office in Berlin.

What’s in our secret sauce?

Live Operations

We are the best in the industry at live operations of free to play games. It’s what we’ve been built for and that is our entire business.

We take a unique long term integrated approach to our games. We take on games with strong loyal communities on browser, mobile, and PC platforms.

Understanding Players

Players are not only customers but also fans. We listen to what our fans want and keep them constantly up to date with what we are working on. We create a bond with the fans of the game that fosters trust and understanding.

Expert Analysis

We couple our vast experience in free to play design and operations with data analysis to find new opportunities to grow and improve the game. We come to understand what’s working and what is not to inform how we manage the game.

Flexible Development

5 year old spaghetti code base with no documentation? It’s all good. We’ve worked on projects making millions a month with infrastructure held together with duct tape. We’ve seen it all and know how to prevent issues and respond to all situations. We tame the chaos to ensure there are regular content updates, bug-fixes and balancing changes.

Live Events

We all know events are a key piece to long term retention and improved engagement. But no one else understands as well as we do how to incorporate events and promotions with content and a game’s core loops.
