Our Properties

All I.P. creation here at Yippee is purposefully planned to become long-term commercial propositions. We dream big and leverage our hundreds of years' industry experience to make these dreams a reality!

Chimpact, the company's first title released in 2012 garnered high critical acclaim and, across multiple platforms, has reached millions of gamers to date. Its accolades are numerous, including holding number 1 app-store positions worldwide and featuring in Microsoft's TV advertising.
