The hidden UK billion dollar hit: Farm Heroes Saga

Farm Heroes Saga might not be the first game that you think of when it comes to big British hits. But the King made puzzle game has developed a habit of making money, generating over $1bn in revenue since it arrived on the scene in 2013.

Where though did the game come from? How has it evolved in the past six years and survived through the tumultuous evolution of the mobile games industry? And how does a company operate to produce approximately ten new levels for the game every week, years after first release?

Todd Green, King's head of studio in London, joined us on the podcast to discuss this and much, much more.
