ZeptoLab, OOO (Russian: ЗептоЛаб, ООО) is a Russian video game developer best known for developing the Cut the Rope series, which has been downloaded more than 400 million times since its release[3] and can be played on major platforms including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, HTML5 Internet browsers, OS X, Nintendo DSi and Nintendo 3DS.[4]

ZeptoLab has also announced licensing and merchandising partnerships for Cut the Rope and its popular character, Om Nom.[5]


ZeptoLab was founded in 2010 by self-taught twins Efim and Semyon Voinov, who have been making games since the age of ten.[6]Zepto”, a math prefix meaning 10−21, was “meant to signify how truly boutique their operation was.”[7]

ZeptoLab has not received any external funding to produce their games.[8] It also owns a game studio subsidiary in the UK and started a publishing division in 2017.[9]
