What’s more interesting is the history of its founder Arjun Metha who studies in 6th grade. Check out his pic on the right side.
The company gives the history:
PlaySpan is founded by Arjun Mehta, a 6th grader, passionate about gaming and software programming that can make game playing experience exciting and more importantly rewarding!
PlaySpan started in Arjun’s garage in Silicon Valley in 2006 and was incorporated with Arjun’s earnings from selling online game items won from quests he fought while attending 5th grade at Challenger School in San Jose.
Along with virtual game worlds, they plan on fully integrating virtual goods trading, with other communication and social networking features added on. It will be interesting to see the site grow.
