Line, the mobile messaging company from Japan that was birthed by Korean Internet firm Naver, continues to grow at a fast pace after announcing that apps on its Line Game platform have now passed 200 million cumulative downloads.

That’s particularly impressive considering that the Line messenger app, which the Game platform ‘plugs’ into, has 230 million registered users, having passed 200 million downloads in July. The 30-plus games in its collection include: Line Pop (iOS Android), Line Bubble (iOSAndroid) and Line Play (iOSAndroid).

Line’s gaming prowess is yet another sign that the service has blossomed into a content platform, from being merely a messaging service. To that end, the company booked $132 million in revenue for Q2 2013, of which $53.7 million was in-game purchases.
