Business description: Twofish is the world's premier provider of real economic solutions for game developers and publishers. The company was founded in 2006 by Lee Crawford, a veteran of both the gaming and financial software markets, with venture backing from Venrock and Rustic Canyon. After over a year of stealth development, Twofish unveiled Twofish Elements™, the world's first plug'n'play Economic Engine that allows game developers and publishers to easily implement and manage flexible, realistic, and fully-integrated economies within their gaming titles. Combining banking-grade account management services, multicurrency administration and exchange, an item-based asset lifecycle management system, a flexible offers/listing service, and an advanced analytics interface, Twofish Elements provides a significant competitive advantage to our partners, delivering advanced features at significant cost and time savings. With a diverse combination of expertise in consumer internet, electronic payments, and online games, the Twofish team is uniquely qualified to provide world class economic solutions to the online entertainment industry.
