Aeria Games, formerly known as Aeria Games and Entertainment, is an online game publisher. The corporate headquarters is in Berlin, Germany.

Aeria Games was a subsidiary of ProSiebenSat.1 Media,[2] which operates an Internet gaming portal for massively multiplayer online games. It focuses on online games in multiple formats, client games, browser games, and mobile games. It publishes games for North America, South America and Europe.


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]

In February 2014, all its worldwide PC games business including its subsidiary Aeria Games Europe GmbH were sold to ProSiebenSat.1 Media.[6] In May 2016, Aeria Games merged with Gamigo and let go 100 of their formerly 260 employees in Berlin.[7]

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


As of July 2012, after the acquisition of Ijji the community has over 40 million registered members.[8]
