Softnyx Ltd is a South Korean video game developer and distributor that was founded in 2001 by Jinho Kim in Seoul. The company first released the hit game GunBound in 2003, introducing Indonesian servers in April, Chinese servers in June and an International server in August. GunBound accumulated approximately 5 million registered players in the first year of release and soon turned on more servers intending to be used by players in a specific country in order to reduce the language barrier and improve latency between players.[2] In 2004 Softnyx released a closed beta of the game Rakion which was later publicly released in March 2005 to Korean players and October to International Players. Wolfteam was launched 2 years later in October 2007 with an estimated 1.2 million players in 2011.[citation needed] Softnyx has participated in a total of 1 game expo which includes the Dubai World Game Expo.
