Becoming one of the most successful German gaming start-ups in Berlin without any outside capital - unthinkable in 2016 for the three students from Karlsruhe, who had just started out to conquer the gaming world from their shared flat.

IT experts laugh at them, investors wave them off, and their first draft of a game fails miserably - a not so fortunate starting point for the Kolibri story. But level by level, the three founders begins to succeed, kicking of one of Germany' biggest start-up success stories.

Our Story

From Kolibri to BLN

Kolibri Games was founded in 2016 in a student flat in Karlsruhe by Daniel, Janosch and Oliver.

Two years later, Kolibri Games moved from Karlsruhe to Berlin,  growing to over 100 employees without any external funding.

Kolibri's biggest hit, Idle Miner Tycoon, has over 100M downloads and remains one of the top idle games in the market.

Kolibri demonstrated continuous innovation in the idle game genre, publishing other games like Idle Restaurant Tycoon and Idle Firefighter Tycoon.

In January 2020, the founders sold the majority of their company to Ubisoft. They left Kolibri Games in April 2021 to found BLN Capital.
