The steps in-between include a small competitive flash game and a “social envelope” with an aggressive cross-platform push onto mobile.



It outlines the pitfalls, lessons learned and best practices accumulated along the way, while answering gamer’s and developer’s questions about the intricate details around the music, voiceovers, gameplay dynamics, automated hints, characters, power-ups, tips and tricks.
