Session Name: Flutter Postmortem: Cultivating a Niche for F2P Success
Speaker(s): Tim Nixon
Company Name(s): Runaway
Track / Format: Free to Play Summit
Overview: Runaway's butterfly raising game "Flutter" has gone from strength to strength over its two-year life cycle, steadily increasing all KPIs to become a highly profitable product on a small install base. This talk aims to dispel the myth that you need a mega-hit to create a meaningful business, instead showing a path to success built around caring for a small, dedicated group of fans who want to belong to something special.
