Overwolf is a software platform designed to help developers create extensions for video games, which are then offered to users through Overwolf's App Store.


Overwolf was founded in 2010 by Uri Marchand, Gil Or, Alon Ranowitz and Nir Finkelstein with a cash seed investment from Joseph (Yossi) Vardi. In September 2013, another $5.3 million was invested by Venture Capital Marker LLC.[1] At the start of their Beta release in 2011,[2] Overwolf had 50,000 users. As of early 2013, Overwolf had reached 1 million users.[3] In September 2012, Overwolf opened its Software Development Kit.[4]

In June 2020, Overwolf acquired CurseForge, for an undisclosed sum,[5] from Twitch.[6]

In March 2022, Overwolf acquired the UK-based payment platform software specialist Tebex in a $29 million deal.[7]
