Seed 9 was formed as the internal game development team of a company called Core Technology in 1998, but reformed as Seed 9 Entertainment after the first and only game developed there1. Since its inception, the company remains comparatively small (15 employees in December 20112), so releases of new games are very sporadical but usually quite popular regardless of their indie-sized budget. In 2008, a cooperation with Capcom was announced to produce an MMO sequel to the classic Ghosts 'n Goblins series3. CJ Internet (now CJ E&M) became the publisher. On February 3rd, 2010 CJ Internet announced that it had made Seed 9 its subsidiary by buying 53% of its stocks, renaming it to Seed 9 Games in the process4. After the high profile licensed title Ghouls 'n Ghosts Online turned out a flop, Seed 9 evaded to the mobile games sector5, which proved a very successful decision, as the first title Dahamkke Pungpungpung turned into a mass phenomenon in Korea, which was downloaded more than ten million times6.
