    Can the game industry transcend its perception as a hit-driven business? Very few titles can reach the blockbuster status of Clash of Clans or Candy Crush. Even blockbusters like those struggle to remain profitable after their initial burst of popularity. The challenge is even greater for smaller hits that can't consistently earn enough through IAP. This talk will analyze the problem and propose long-term solutions for game developers who want more value from the great games they've worked so hard to create.


    Attendees will learn the hard reality behind megahits and the difficulties in maintaining their revenue. They'll learn how to identify older games that maintain a passionate fan base, and concrete strategies for fostering and monetizing them. They'll further learn how these principles have been applied in the recent re-launch of Zombie Lane.
