Russian social and mobile game company Game Insight revealed it earned $50 million in revenue in 2011. The company’s CEO, Alisa Chumachenko shared the numbers last week in her talk at the Russian social game conference Sociality Rocks!. According to Chumachenko, the company aims to reach $150 million in annual revenues in 2012.

The $50 million figure fits with the performance of the company’s games. Game Insight told us last year that it was earning $1 million a month from its free-to-play Android hit Paradise Island, and the iOS version of My Country was earning $150,000 a week while it was at the top of the iPad top grossing charts. Game Insight currently operates 14 development studios and just announced the opening of a new office in San Francisco to help the company pursue mobile publishing.

The company currently has three free-to-play games in the top-grossing Android app charts holding the No. 14, No. 17 and No. 26 spots. Its game Mystery Manor: Hidden Adventures is currently the No. 3 highest grossing iPad app. On Facebook, the company has 4.6 million monthly active users and just over 690,000 daily active users according to AppData.

Game Insight maintains an agressive international strategy, bringing its games to more than 20 social networks and app stores including GFan (China), Mobage, T-store (south Korea), Vkontakte, Orkut and Draugiem. It also operates its own web-based gaming platform, Funzay!com, which has upward of 15 million players.
