0 About Hypothetical Software

Our Mission

Virtual Environments. Real Communities.

Hypothetical Software develops and publishes Internet applications that bring users from a variety of backgrounds together in unique and satisfying virtual environments.

The online entertainment software market is growing beyond its traditional audience of hard-core gamers to a much broader one that encompasses people from many walks of life. Hypothetical Software serves this emerging audience with products that apply game-play mechanics to situations and venues that appeal to more than just teenaged boys and young men.

This promising market space is known as Casual On-line Gaming. It is notable for the lesser demands of entry it places on its customers, both in terms of lower prices, and by creating settings and communities that are less intimidating for first-time players. It is a relatively new, but rapidly growing segment of the wider Internet game market. While worldwide Internet gaming revenue now totals more than $3 billion a year, total sales of casual on-line games falls somewhere between 300 and 500 million dollars.

The advantages of working in this space are the combination of a rapidly growing audience with development and marketing costs that are much lower than those of traditional game software publishers.

Hypothetical Software is incorporated in Washington State.
