Company Summary

Juxta is building games for our 30 million users and 150 million of their classmates in our database. The Yearbook app helps users connect with past classmates. We have two games in production that focus on the competition and nostalgia associated with high school. Our games let classmates compete, show off, share memories, and reminisce. High school is the ultimate social game and we're capturing that experience in our social/mobile games.
