Where did our name come from?
The founder of Seasun, a dreamer named Bojun Qiu, wished to honor his home town XiShan Village. So, he wanted to name the company XiShan (phonetically pronounced Seasun in English). However, he felt the name was awkward, so instead he called the company XiShan Ju. He basically added a Buddhist monk term that translates as “householder,” meaning a lay person engaged in a non-religious career and devoted to the study of something. So, the very first Seasun games were created by a passionate group of “householders!”
Now, after more than two decades, Seasun has grown into an industry leader in China, with a reputation for advancing technology and the arts. The secret of our success? We continually integrate new talent and fresh perspectives to keep our company young at heart. At the same time, we honor and cherish the wisdom and experience of our founders.
Together, we persevere in the constant pursuit of our dreams. Check us out! You might find something that makes you want to stay!
