Founded in 2004 by Daniel McNeely,Armor Games is a website based in Irvine, California, that hosts free Flash-based browser games across a wide variety of genres, including point-and-click adventure, arcade, puzzle, and MMO games. In addition to sponsoring certain browser games, Armor Games has begun acting as a publisher for other titles. The company has released games for iOS and Android mobile devices and Steam, and others slated to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Besides games, Armor Games also has online chat, the ability to comment on and discuss the games posted with other players, a wide variety of achievement-based "Quests" to unlock and earn badges for their profile, and a system that allows players to earn stars and merits for participating in the community. Contests are frequently held to win prizes such as free games for Steam, T-shirts, plush toys, and more. Each year a round of voting is held to allow the players to choose the best games in each genre released on the site.
In 2010, Armor Games developed and released Flash game Sushi Cat along with programmer Joey Betz and popular artist Jimp. The game was a sort of Pachinko-style physics puzzle where players dropped the titular squishy blue cat from the top of the screen in each level to try to catch sushi as it falls. Each level has a minimum amount of sushi that must be eaten to progress, and a limited number of attempts a player can make to do so. Sushi Cat received positive reviews, and over 4.5 million players on Armor Games alone, and was eventually ported to iPhone and iPad where it has been downloaded over 400,000 times. Sushi Cat remains Armor Games' most distinctive and well-known icon.
The series received several web-based Flash follow-ups, including Sushi Cat The Honeymoon later that same year, Sushi Cat 2 in 2011, and Sushi Cat 2 The Great Purrade in 2012. All games received high scores from visitors, and plays numbering in the millions.
