Overview: In the increasingly competitive realm of mobile game development, Large Animal Games decided to take a risk when they gave a small dev team three weeks to build and launch the game that came to be Color Zen. This session focuses on the design and production process used to release a game as quickly as possible, as well as the experiments and live services performed post-release. The game designer will share lessons learned along the way, and some of the surprising data gathered from releasing an App Store featured paid app that later transitioned to a free one.
