This session will take a deep dive into the games-as-a-service strategy that Storm8 employs to maintain its loyal fan base of more than 200 million players worldwide. Drawing on examples from the social casual hit Dragon Story, Storm8 general manager Vatsal Bhardwaj will tackle what mobile game developers can do today to service players the right way, and keep them playing forever.|
