Overcoming Analysis Paralysis: Experimenting with Bears vs. Art


Thanks to analytics, we have more information about our games than ever before. But instead of empowering our designs, we can easily become paralyzed by the power of metrics. This is exactly what happened during the soft launch of Bears vs. Art.

With a new perspective, analytics gave us huge creative freedom to make bold, experimental changes to the game, and learn some surprising and counterintuitive lessons about our design.
