Tom will share pointed, insightful details from the development, launch and results of Diner Dash Rush, a modern-day re-imagining of the classic game. These will include an overview of the creative process behind the game, the twin goals of providing exciting mechanics and effective monetization, and the results of this successful collaboration between game design and business.
