Aeria Games was founded in Santa Clara, California as Aeria Games & Entertainment. Two years later they opened their first international office in Berlin, Germany, which later became the company's headquarter.[3] On January 5, the company acquired ijji , 2012.[4]

The company also merged with Gamepot in late 2012.[5]

Its games are free-to-play and use a micropayment system to generate revenue (in-game item malls and advertising).
