What are .io Games?

.io games are a new genre of online games that are emerging from the success of Agar.io and Slither.io.

The general mantra of .io games is; keeping game mechanics very simple, matched by basic graphics and an ability to play multiplayer games at the click of a mouse. These key features allow the games to be easily consumed and played to a high level of satisfaction over the course of 5 - 10 minute period.

Why Do .io Games use the .io Extension?

Agar.io was the seed game. The domain Agar.io was suggested by a user on 4chan, simply because all other related names like cell.com and cell.io were taken. At the time of naming the .io top level domain extension was relatively new and the price was very high. So many dictionary term domains were still available.

Later, Slither.io took advantage of the availability of the .io TLD, presumably for the same reasons as Agar.io.

Following on from Slither , Agar , paper.io and many new .io games wanted a piece of their predecessors success and popularity. They too adopted a .io domain.

Today there are over 100 games within the genre and more are being released almost daily.
