Bob Slinn, VP Business Development at FunPlus, joined Milka Paunonen from GameRefinery and Jon Jordan to talk about State of Survival and its success during the recent Mobile Gamedev Awards.
During this 30 minutes interview, Bob started explaining how FunPlus became as big as it is now, with more than 2.000 employees and offices in several countries in Europe, US, and, obviously, Asia. Also, he didn’t forget to mention the long-term vision of the company: the next generation of great IP will come from games.
The central theme is, obviously, State of Survival, a game that fits perfectly in the 4X Strategy space. The first key to success has been the focus on characters as the source of power progression,with lots of character to be collected and developed.
