Berlin/Germany, October 22, 2018 | In their exceptionally successful third year, Berlin-based games company Fluffy Fairy Games takes another step forward by rebranding to Kolibri Games, effective as of today. The student-flat-founded firm has achieved remarkable success since its establishment in 2016 and is marking a new phase in its development, by exchanging its unique founding name for one that better underlines the company’s agility, mobility and leanness. The new name expresses the team’s ambition to leave a dent in the mobile games market as the number one developer of idle games. Together with the name the company changes their whole corporate identity, with a new logo, new colors, new fonts – a sharp new visual identity, characterizing the brand as bold, smart and original.

Janosch Sadowski, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, says: “Fluffy Fairy Games was a funny and friendly name that we got really attached to, and that many of us identified with. However, it no longer reflected the company that we are, nor the type of company that we aspire to be.” Daniel Stammler, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, adds: “By leaving behind our first name, we are not giving up on anything. On the contrary, we are emphasizing our approach and our values by changing our name to “Kolibri Games”. The name perfectly expresses the agility and mobility that characterizes us as a company.”

The company has published a blog post, providing further information about the rebranding process.
