We have iterated on many things since I co-founded the company in 2011 including our product slate, our organization and the ways that we work together. In 2014, Javier joined me on the Scopely journey and has since then been my partner in leading these iterations. Throughout the five years that he has been here we have also iterated on our partnership, improving how we elevate each other's perspectives and leverage each other's strengths to make important decisions. I believe that the incredible products, culture and business momentum our partnership has yielded demonstrate that by operating together we can be the most impactful leaders possible. <\/span>\r\n\r\n<span style="font-weight: 400;">To reflect the deeply integrated partnership that he and I have, I am excited to formally recognize Javier as Co-CEO of Scopely.

With these expert tips, you'll have an ace in the (worm)hole as you fight your way across the Alpha Quadrant.<\/h3>\r\n<strong>Preparing to boldly go<\/strong> Early on, your starships only have enough power to reach low-level systems. But you can boost your swap-drive range by upgrading vessels--and building powerful new ones like Ambassador Spock's <em>Jellyfish<\/em>. That's how you'll find Nausicaans, Andorians, Gorn, and other factions offering lucrative missions. Remember that your starbase's location has no effect on your range: The number of systems between you and a destination doesn't matter; your ship just needs warp drives of a certain strength to enter a system.\r\n\r\n<strong>Place that base<\/strong> Your starbase can move among distant systems--it isn't fixed in space. Relocate it to reduce your travel time when hunting or gathering resources. To do so, first recall and dock all your ships, then tap on another system. If it has planets that can support starbases (denoted by a special icon) and enough free space, tap Relocate Base to give yourself a new home. Just keep in mind that making the jump requires a Relocation Token, which you can acquire during missions and every few days in your free chests.\r\n\r\n<strong>Craving crystals<\/strong> Early on, you'll unlock a series of Combat Training missions in which you'll fight increasingly tough hostiles. Winning these battles yields great rewards--including Dilithium, a resource that's very hard to come by. Use it to fuel your early starbase construction.\r\n\r\n<strong>Refining rules<\/strong> As your player level approaches the teens, you'll unlock the Refinery--the place you'll process the raw Crystal, Gas, and Ore you've minded. Construct this critical building as soon as the research becomes available. Initially, refined materials have two levels: Common and Uncommon. As your level hits around 18 to 20, Uncommon materials will star showing up more and more frequently--and they're some of the most useful upgrades in the galaxy. Uncommon materials can make your vessels extremely powerful, and some key building upgrades require them. Keep your Refinery running as much as possible. And remember, if you've stockpiled enough raw materials (grab those mining nodes!), you can even do double or triple batches at higher levels.\r\n\r\n<strong>Choose your side<\/strong> At around level 20, you'll gain access to systems inside Federation, Romulan, and Klingon space. Commit to one of these factions when scenarios prompt you--or just dive into the conflict by destroying one faction's ships to build your reputation with the other two. Once you earn 500 points with a faction, they'll start offering you Daily Goals to mine resources or destroy enemies. Completing objectives give you a big reputation boost and some handy faction credits. Eventually,\u00a0 you may even be entrusted with powerful, unique ships. Keep at it, and a Klingon B'Rel-class Bird-of-Prey--or even the <em>Enterprise<\/em>--could be yours.\r\n\r\n<a href="https:\/\/itunes.apple.com\/us\/story\/id1446328604">See more on the App Store.<\/a>\r\n\r\n "}}]},{"title":{"en":"‘Looney Tunes World of Mayhem’ nominated for a 2019 International Mobile Gaming Award","es":"‘Looney Tunes World of Mayhem’ nominated for a 2019 International Mobile Gaming Award"},"date":"2019-02-22","seo":{"title":"‘Looney Tunes World of Mayhem’ nominated for a 2019 International Mobile Gaming Award"},"externalLink":"","slug":"looney-tunes-world-of-mayhem-nominated-for-an-international-mobile-gaming-award","thumb":"","category":"62a307739ca8b40009396905","image":"\/uploads\/2019\/02\/LooneyTunesWorldofMayhem_BugsDaffy.jpg","video":null,"video_placeholder_image":null,"textPreview":{"en":"'Looney Tunes World of Mayhem'\ud83d\udca5 snags awards nom and fans can VOTE for the winners."},"creationDate":"2019-02-22 1:02:12","content":[{"modelName":"PostTextMigration","key":"","position":20,"text":{"en":"Exciting news!

From Bugs Bunny to Daffy Duck to the varmint-hatin' Yosemite Sam, the stars of <em>World of Mayhem<\/em> seem like they just sprang out of an old-school Saturday morning cartoon. That's exactly what lead designer Evan Losi was going for. "We want to make you feel like you're watching an episode you've never seen before," he says. For inspiration\u2014and, you know, research\u2014Losi and his team at Scopely watched hundreds of animated shorts, TV episodes, and movies featuring the Looney Tunes gang. The 80 characters they included at launch began as basic conceptual sketches and ultimately evolved into slick 3D models with over-the-top attacks\u2014falling anvils, ACME-brand dynamite, you name it. Here's a look at how the team brought Looney Tunes' wacky world to iPhone and iPad.\r\n\r\n<strong>Making Marvin\u00a0<\/strong>To ensure authenticity, the animators at Warner Bros. who bring the current crop of Looney Tunes episodes to life weighed in during each step of the game's design process. Their constructive feedback may have doomed Earth. When Losi showed a scene featuring feisty villain Marvin the Martian to animators, there were furrowed brows. "We had initially animated Marvin as too manic," says Losi. "Warner Bros. pointed out that a lot of Marvin's humor comes from how calm and flat he is, even when he's angry." Marvin's walk also had too many frames of animation, Losi learned. "They sent over a reference clip and gave us the proper four-frame cycle," says Losi. "One leg forward, blur of legs together, opposite leg forward, blur of legs together, repeat."\r\n\r\n<img class=" wp-image-53600 aligncenter" src="https:\/\/scopely.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/02\/LooneyTunes_WoM_AS_SupportingImagery_20180927-copy-300x227.png" alt="" width="487" height="293" \/>\r\n\r\n<strong>Dethpicable disguises<\/strong> Many of the combatants in <em>World of Mayhem<\/em>\u00a0have variants inspired by popular Looney Tunes episodes. Daffy Duck's abundant alter egos include the swashbuckling Scarlet Pumpernickel and the spacefaring hero Duck Dodgers from the 24 1\/2th Century, for example. "We're bringing back a lot of the classics," says Losi. His personal favorites: Elmer Fudd as Siegfried and Bugs Bunny as Brunnhilde from 1957's <em>What's Opera, Doc?<\/em>\r\n\r\n<strong>Toon Town<\/strong> And more characters are on the way. "We have a ton of creative freedom," says Losi, who has essentially been handed the keys to a vast vault of iconic cartoon characters. There are at least 100 more animated screwballs he's hoping to bring to the game, including mainstays they missed the first time around, like the Tasmanian Devil. But he's also excited to add more Looney Tunes personalities along the lines of World of Mayhem's Sam Sheepdog and Witch Hazel\u2014fan favorites who only appeared in a handful of classic episodes. "We live for that moment of nostalgia and recollection," Losi says. "That's where so much of the joy can be found.""}}]},{"title":{"en":"Scopely closed 2018 with a bang\ud83d\udca5","es":"Scopely closed 2018 with a bang\ud83d\udca5"},"date":"2019-02-13","seo":{"title":"Scopely closed 2018 with a bang\ud83d\udca5"},"externalLink":"","slug":"scopely-closed-2018-with-a-bang%f0%9f%92%a5","thumb":"","category":"62a307739ca8b40009396905","image":false,"video":"","video_placeholder_image":"https:\/\/scopely.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/02\/giphy-2.gif","textPreview":{"en":"It was a big year for Scopely - existing franchise growth and two new game launches: 'Star Trek\u2122 Fleet Command' and 'Looney Tunes\u2122 World of Mayhem' drove a surge of growth."},"creationDate":"2019-02-13 7:04:18","content":[{"modelName":"PostTextMigration","key":"","position":20,"text":{"en":"<span style="font-weight: 400;">Scopely continues to solidify its position in the rapidly growing interactive entertainment ecosystem\u2014with a highly diverse games slate and an ability to monetize and attract global audiences. <\/span>\r\n\r\n<span style="font-weight: 400;">Scopely\u2019s most recent momentum: two new marquee games at the end of 2018 in two new genres\u2014<\/span><strong><i>Star Trek\u2122 Fleet Command <\/i><\/strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">and<\/span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;"><strong> Looney Tunes\u2122 World of Mayhem<\/strong>\u2014<\/span><\/i><span style="font-weight: 400;">drove a surge of growth for the business, propelling company well north of a $400m run rate. <\/span>\r\n\r\n<span style="font-weight: 400;">Scopely was already on an exciting trajectory with the company\u2019s live franchises seeing meaningful growth in \u201918. <\/span>\r\n\r\n<span style="font-weight: 400;">Combine this existing franchise growth with its two new products, overall revenues for Scopely grew 80% from Jan \u201818 - Dec \u201818, closing the year with a bang\ud83d\udca5.<\/span>"}}]},{"title":{"en":"‘Star Trek Fleet Command’ nominated for a 2019 SXSW Gaming Award","es":"‘Star Trek Fleet Command’ nominated for a 2019 SXSW Gaming Award"},"date":"2019-02-13","seo":{"title":"‘Star Trek Fleet Command’ nominated for a 2019 SXSW Gaming Award"},"externalLink":"","slug":"star-trek-fleet-command-nominated-for-a-2019-sxsw-gaming-award","thumb":"","category":"62a307739ca8b40009396905","image":"\/uploads\/2019\/02\/SXSWGamingAward.png","video":null,"video_placeholder_image":null,"textPreview":{"en":"Star Trek fans, let's do this.\ud83d\udd96 Click to VOTE!"},"creationDate":"2019-02-13 5:06:58","content":[{"modelName":"PostTextMigration","key":"","position":20,"text":{"en":"<span id="ember5353" class="ember-view">Exciting news!

Today she gives us an exclusive look into why she chose to take on this adventure...\r\n\r\n<strong>Q: <\/strong>What attracted you to Scopely?\r\n\r\n<strong>A: <\/strong>I joined because of the scale, stage, space and "Scoplean" style I saw.\r\n\r\nScopely has demonstrated the ability to build great games, great teams and a strong business. <strong>Scaling<\/strong> from where we are today to where we want to go, requires the right foundation for how we operate, communicate, attract talent and unlock the potential of our people. I felt excited by the concept of driving this foundation forward while still staying nimble and sustaining what\u2019s core to us as a business.\r\n\r\nRegarding the <strong>stage<\/strong>, I love that getting from one stage of a business to the next is really in our hands. It comes down to strategy, leadership, execution and teamwork. As I explored the opportunity it was clear to me that I wanted to dig in with this group of people to continue to \u201cmake it happen\u201d and I saw all the right ingredients that could successfully get from where we were when I joined to where we are trying to go.\r\n\r\nRegarding the gaming <strong>space<\/strong>, I didn\u2019t fully realize how much I would enjoy being back in mobile gaming until I started (I was previously at EA for 8+ years). The industry is truly inspiring. It's a rare combination of a right and left brain--it requires creativity, innovation and player empathy as well as really geeky quant chops, exceptional business acumen and the intellectual horsepower to work with complexity. The industry attracts people with an intense drive to win as it's the only way to succeed. These qualities are exciting and fuel my passion to come to work each day.\r\n\r\nFinally, the <strong>style<\/strong> of Scopely was the cherry on top. An irreverent, quirky, authentic environment and culture that encourages healthy debate and real relationships. Scopeleans embrace the adventure and play to win. I could easily see why this group of people had been successful so far and I saw an opportunity to materially contribute to business outcomes through the experience and diversity of approach that I uniquely bring.\r\n\r\n<strong>Q:<\/strong> How has it surprised you so far?\r\n\r\n<strong>A:<\/strong> A few things really stand out to me. First, the volume, variety and velocity of what we achieve on an ongoing daily basis is incredible! There is such a strong willingness to tackle the next challenge, find a way through obstacles and accomplish whatever we set out to do across all teams. Also, the executive team is very \u201cproduct first\u201d--there is a deep belief that everything flows from creating great experiences in our products and I see us driving this in many ways. Culturally, there are so many home grown attributes that are truly unique to Scopely, which create a sense of community and specialness that I think is unique. I also have been surprised by the internationally diverse team--I look around in meetings and see colleagues from Israel, Spain, France, Turkey, Brazil, across the US and more. We truly have a collection of the best of the best from the around globe.\r\n\r\n<strong>Q:<\/strong> What are you hoping to accomplish in your first year?\r\n\r\n<strong>A:<\/strong> I like to say that I \u201ccause the conversations\u201d that accelerate our ability to achieve outcomes. There are structural ways I think I\u2019ve already helped us get our priorities into sharp focus and I\u2019m helping us put the frameworks and communication channels in place to ensure dialogue across teams and levels. Scopely believes each team and department should have the autonomy to define their own culture and at the same time we need alignment on some common denominators that enable us to act as one company. In my first year I am focusing on the core practices and processes that support us in this--from workforce planning to how we provide feedback and offer incentives, to new communication channels needed as a growing global company. I\u2019m also focused on building a truly global People Team function that will support the future growth of the business.\r\n\r\n<strong>Q:<\/strong> How do you strive to build a high-performing environment?\r\n\r\n<strong>A: <\/strong>Throughout my career, I\u2019ve been influenced by certain models and theories that have helped shape how I approach team relationships, structure, functionality, culture and achievement. One of the most important aspects to me is the foundation of trust. Trust is a requirement for healthy conflict, debate, and real buy-in and accountability. <em>The Trusted Advisor<\/em> by Robert M. Galford and <em>The Five Dysfunctions of a Team<\/em> by Patrick Lencioni articulate these concepts well. I believe high-performance is most likely achieved in an environment where people know what they can expect from each other--this is core to trust. It\u2019s not just about clear objectives but also the relationship. High-performance happens when there is a healthy \u201crelationship bottom line\u201d between teammates and up\/down the org chart. To build this environment we reinforce through our People programs that reporting lines are best understood as supporting lines, conversations are about calibration and managers and their direct reports have 50\/50 responsibility in raising issues, giving and asking for feedback, collaborating on goals and holding each other accountable. This requires courage, vulnerability and the willingness to take radical personal responsibility for what we are each bringing to the table.\r\n\r\nSee Roxane's welcome announcement <a href="https:\/\/scopely.com\/blog\/roxane-lukas-joins-scopely-as-chief-people-officer\/">here<\/a>."}}]},{"title":{"en":"\u2018The Walking Dead\u2019 Video Games: An Oral History","es":"\u2018The Walking Dead\u2019 Video Games: An Oral History"},"date":"2018-10-17","seo":{"title":"\u2018The Walking Dead\u2019 Video Games: An Oral History"},"externalLink":"https:\/\/variety.com\/2018\/gaming\/news\/walking-dead-video-games-oral-history-1202982858\/","slug":"the-walking-dead-video-games-an-oral-history","thumb":"","category":"62a307909ca8b40009396906","image":"\/uploads\/2019\/05\/bec06432cb0cdaeefacc243b6da1ae0d-copy.png","video":null,"video_placeholder_image":null,"textPreview":{"en":"Scopely is one of many brands with a Walking Dead video game, so the team did everything they could to engross themselves in the brand including reading every edition of the comic series."},"creationDate":"2018-10-17 2:50:54","content":[{"modelName":"PostText","key":"","position":20,"text":{"en":"[https:\/\/variety.com\/2018\/gaming\/news\/walking-dead-video-games-oral-history-1202982858\/](https:\/\/variety.com\/2018\/gaming\/news\/walking-dead-video-games-oral-history-1202982858\/)"}}]},{"title":{"en":"Welcome to the Women\u2019s Evolution. \u2018WWE Champions\u2019 introduces the Women\u2019s Division","es":"Welcome to the Women\u2019s Evolution. \u2018WWE Champions\u2019 introduces the Women\u2019s Division"},"date":"2018-08-24","seo":{"title":"Welcome to the Women\u2019s Evolution. \u2018WWE Champions\u2019 introduces the Women\u2019s Division"},"externalLink":"","slug":"welcome-to-the-womens-evolution-wwe-champions-introduces-the-womens-division","thumb":"","category":"62a307739ca8b40009396905","image":"\/uploads\/2018\/08\/wwe.001.jpeg","video":null,"video_placeholder_image":null,"textPreview":{"en":"WWE\u2019s Women\u2019s Division joins WWE Champions, the fast-paced puzzle RPG mobile game, which allows players to build their fantasy roster across generations of WWE Superstars and Legends, and face off in the ring."},"creationDate":"2018-08-24 1:39:13","content":[{"modelName":"PostTextMigration","key":"","position":20,"text":{"en":"WWE\u2019s Women\u2019s Division joins <a href="http:\/\/scopely.com\/game\/wwe-champions\/"><strong><em>WWE Champions<\/em><\/strong><\/a>, the fast-paced puzzle RPG mobile game, which allows players to build their fantasy roster across generations of WWE Superstars and Legends, and face off in the ring.

With this post I'd like to share a little about myself, my path through the world of game development, and to share some anecdotes and resources I've picked up along the way.<\/div>\r\n<div><\/div>\r\n<div>\r\n\r\nFrom about age 10 onwards (I'm 32 now), I've been a gamer. For me, it all started with video games but it was card games that truly propelled me into the community of gaming. I would take the bus or get a ride to the local game store every day to play in tournaments, hang out, and try to learn as much about the games as I could. A few years later, I became the game store's tournament coordinator. I studied all the game rules, became a certified tournament judge, promoted our events, organized, kept scores, and officiated every tournament. Later, as part of my job (I was 16 now), I built one of the largest card game leagues in Washington state. Through this, I met a lot of people who worked for the game company that made these games. They hired me to run their tournament programs, and I travelled the world working tournaments and conventions. After I went to college, my old boss hired me to move 1500 miles to Southern California to do similar work at a new game company.\r\n\r\n<\/div>\r\n<div>In the years that followed I started doing more creative work on games. At first I would just add a little flavor to someone else's design, contribute some text here or an art description there. Over time I transitioned into creative full-time and was responsible for the stories that brought our games to life. Suddenly, the mobile games industry exploded into being, and I moved to San Francisco to write stories and content for mobile games. There, I was exposed to the hard technical side of game design. I learned to create the systems and economies that were the backbone of every game. How much experience does a player need to level up? How much damage does this sword do? How much gold should it cost? What do we want the win rate of this puzzle to be? We answered these questions with intricate, complex spreadsheets of data and algorithms, functions and scripts. I led a team of designers that created and supported games that made tens of thousands of dollars every day, and now I'm at Scopely trying to create the next generation of mobile game hits.<\/div>\r\n<div><\/div>\r\n<div>\r\n\r\nSo, why am I telling you my crazy, zig-zagging career story?\r\n\r\nA few reasons:\r\n\r\n<\/div>\r\n<div>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Every game designer's path is unique. For every game designer with a degree in game design, there's another that studied law, another with no degree, another who studied art or software engineering. I hear that you already try to create your own games. That's great, because that's the\u00a0<b>one thing<\/b>\u00a0that we all have in common. Keep it up.<\/li>\r\n<\/ul>\r\n<ul>\r\n \t<li>Getting into game design is\u00a0<i>hard<\/i>. Games are fun, and almost everybody plays them these days. People fantasize about being able to make the things they love for a living, but for a variety of reasons, a lot of people aren't able to make that fantasy a reality. How many young people\u00a0<i>wouldn't\u00a0<\/i>want to make games for a living? Not many. This means that there are way more\u00a0<i>aspiring\u00a0<\/i>game designers than there are game design\u00a0<i>jobs<\/i>. It's competitive, and you need to meet the right people and learn the right things to have a good chance. Over the coming years, find ways to connect with other game makers and industry professionals to learn from the best. Stay focused on your dream, and make sure you learn the required skills: mathematics, graphic design, psychology, statistics, software engineering, creative writing.<\/li>\r\n<\/ul>\r\n<div>\r\n\r\nThe most straightforward way to make games professionally is to study software engineering. It's one of the most in-demand jobs in the world because every company, from a game studio to a shoe store, uses software and digital applications to run their businesses. If you graduate from a good school with a degree in computer engineering, game companies will fight for a chance to hire you. Once you're in a game company, even as an engineer, it's much easier to move into a game design position than it would be if you were trying to transition into design from the outside. If engineering doesn't interest you, game design degrees are available from some great schools, and these degrees will provide\u00a0<i>enormous\u00a0<\/i>help preparing you for your career, teaching you the skills you need, and helping you find your first position in the industry.\r\n\r\n<\/div>\r\n<\/div>\r\n<div>It's a good time to be a young game fan. Video games are played by more people today than ever before in the history of the modern world. Everyone from kindergarteners to grandparents play games on their phones now. The games industry makes more money than the\u00a0<i>movie\u00a0<\/i>industry, and the production value of games now rivals it as well. You have the pleasure of experiencing 3D, high res worlds, connecting with other players from around the world online, and growing up when movies and games full of dragons and wizards aren't "nerdy", but rather the coolest, most epic, most popular entertainment out there!<\/div>\r\n<div><\/div>\r\n<div>\r\n\r\nI've worked with hundreds of game makers over my career, and every one of us has a story. At some point, we all decided that we wanted to make what we love, to be true to ourselves about our passions, our skills, and our dreams, and to do whatever it takes (a lot of hard work and focus) to make our dreams come true.\r\n\r\n<\/div>\r\n<div>\r\n\r\nI've pasted some book and website recommendations below to help your learn more about game making. I hope this was helpful!\r\n\r\n<\/div>\r\n<div>\r\n\r\n<b>Recommendations<\/b>\r\n\r\n<\/div>\r\n<div><u>Game design websites:<\/u><\/div>\r\n<div><a href="http:\/\/gamasutra.com\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http:\/\/gamasutra.com\/<\/a><\/div>\r\n<div><a href="http:\/\/www.deconstructoroffun.com\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http:\/\/www.deconstructoroffun.<wbr \/>com\/<\/a><\/div>\r\n<div><a href="http:\/\/becomingacomputertechnician.com\/top-50-best-game-design-blogs" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http:\/\/<wbr \/>becomingacomputertechnician.<wbr \/>com\/top-50-best-game-design-<wbr \/>blogs<\/a><\/div>\r\n<div><\/div>\r\n<div><u>Books:<\/u><\/div>\r\n<div>Th first book is highly recommended.

Prior to Scopely, I was Senior Counsel & Senior Director of Business Affairs at Zynga, where I performed a dual legal and business development role running the commercial legal team and heading our business affairs efforts. Before that, I ran Business Affairs at Shazam in London and then in Palo Alto.\r\n\r\nMy Scopely story began when Scopely\u2019s Chief Revenue Officer Tim O'Brien reached out to me last year. He and I had worked with many of the same folks across the gaming industry, and it felt more like reconnecting with an old friend than being recruited. I found his energy and persistence infectious. Though I was living in San Francisco at the time, I happened to be in LA for a gaming conference and was able to meet Walter, Javier, and Tim in person and was completely blown away. At the time, my family and I just weren't ready to move down from San Francisco but - Tim being Tim - he pinged me every month, and by the end of the year we were in with both feet. (Side Note: We found out we're going to have a second kiddo in November and really loved the idea of moving closer to family in LA. The timing was perfect in the end - even if it took 8 months!)\r\n\r\nI hope Scopely can benefit from my experience and perspective from Zynga and Shazam -- particularly from Zynga, which is operating in much of the same space as Scopely. While there, I built out the deal structure for Zynga's advertising business, third party developer platform, IP licensing efforts, and general commercial deal flow. The speed and energy at Scopely is a lot like Zynga, and I hope I can help guide Scopely to the same level of success Zynga has seen and avoid some of the missteps.\r\n\r\nScopely is truly sitting on a powder keg. The team Walter has put together is an amazing combination of the best and brightest from the largest gaming and media companies with all of the attributes of a nimble and entrepreneurial start up. I'm excited about the opportunities that lie ahead of us given our vision, our size and our reach throughout tech, gaming, and entertainment. And if people knew what I know about where we're headed, you wouldn't need to ask why I was inspired to join. It was a no brainer."}}]},{"title":{"en":"Scopely named one of the ‘100 Hottest Startups in LA’","es":"Scopely named one of the ‘100 Hottest Startups in LA’"},"date":"2015-01-07","seo":{"title":"Scopely named one of the ‘100 Hottest Startups in LA’"},"externalLink":"http:\/\/www.symmetry50.com\/blog\/2014\/12\/17\/the-top-100-startups-in-la","slug":"scopely-included-in-list-of-100-hottest-startups-in-la","thumb":"","category":"62a307739ca8b40009396905","image":"\/uploads\/2015\/01\/Screen-Shot-2019-06-25-at-12.29.44-PM.png","video":null,"video_placeholder_image":null,"textPreview":{"en":"LA isn't just surf and sun.

When he was a little kid, his older brother gave him <em>Yahtzee<\/em> as a Christmas gift, which he loved.\u00a0He downloaded <em>Dice With Buddies<\/em> in 2012, and has been an avid player ever since.\u00a0In April of last year, he was randomly matched with Rylee, a <em>Dice<\/em> player from San Diego. There was nothing particularly remarkable about their first <em>Dice<\/em> match.\u00a0Robert says he had a string of lucky rolls and was actually beating Rylee quite handily.\u00a0Being the competitive spirit that he is, Robert initiated some good-natured trash talking through the game\u2019s chat feature.\u00a0He called out his new opponent, telling her to \u201cpick up the slack.\u201d<\/span>\r\n\r\n<span style="font-size: 11.5pt; font-family: Arial; color: #777777;">To Robert\u2019s surprise, Rylee was actually amused by this comment, and began chatting back. They continued playing each other and chatting over rematches for the next month. Over time, the chats turned into friendship. They eventually linked up over long-distance Skype chats, but not before both had done a considerable amount of snooping around about the other (e.g., investigative Google and Facebook searches). After all, both Robert and Rylee were well aware of the \u201ccatfishing\u201d phenomenon, and neither one of them had ever fallen in love through an online game before. This was thrilling and scary new territory for the both of them, and they understandably had their guards up at first.<\/span>\r\n\r\n<span style="font-size: 11.5pt; font-family: Arial; color: #777777;">Finally Robert made plans to fly out to San Diego to meet Rylee in person.

It was clear to me that something special was happening, just seeing the success of <em>Mini Golf Matchup, Slots Vacation <\/em>and<em> Dice With Buddies<\/em>.\r\n\r\nWalter and I met at a dinner six months ago and I was energized by our conversation. I had been at Disney for four years and I was growing eager to jump back into a company where I could truly help build a business that would be consequential in the long term. After meeting the team and experiencing the culture of the company, I felt there was no better place than Scopely to return to a startup. My first week here has proven my instinct right: it\u2019s an exciting and fun place to come to work every day.\r\n\r\nI joined Scopely because I believe in the company\u2019s vision to help strong mobile game developers scale their game titles into successful global businesses. With over a million applications in each app store and the Top 25 titles on each platform accounting for a huge percentage of overall revenue, developers have a tough business to crack. Scopely is focused on ensuring that great independent developers have the opportunity to compete at the highest level by leveraging our infrastructure, distribution, and scale on an ongoing basis. Having had the opportunity to build two of biggest app store global franchises, Tap Tap Revenge and Where\u2019s My Water, as well as 25 number one hits since the App Store launched in 2008, I want to bring my experience to help other app developers succeed at the scale we were able to achieve at Tapulous and Disney.\r\n\r\nBeing able to work with independent game companies to create valuable, high quality experiences and then deliver those games to millions of users across the planet is thrilling. I have been blessed to collaborate with some amazing entrepreneurs and game developers over the past 10 years, and I know that by joining Scopely, I will be meeting talent that will help shape mobile entertainment for years to come.\r\n\r\nI joined Scopely because I wanted to be a part of an organization where I could have an impact on day one. Plus, with so many dogs to pet in the office every day, I knew I would always go home feeling good at the end of each day.\r\n\r\nRead more at:\u00a0<a title="http:\/\/recode.net\/2014\/05\/22\/disney-mobile-games-guru-tim-obrien-jumps-to-scopely\/" href="http:\/\/recode.net\/2014\/05\/22\/disney-mobile-games-guru-tim-obrien-jumps-to-scopely\/">http:\/\/recode.net\/2014\/05\/22\/disney-mobile-games-guru-tim-obrien-jumps-to-scopely\/<\/a>\r\n\r\n<a href="http:\/\/www.gamesindustry.biz\/articles\/2014-05-23-scopely-hires-disney-biz-dev-executive" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http:\/\/www.gamesindustry.biz\/articles\/2014-05-23-scopely-hires-disney-biz-dev-executive<\/a>\r\n\r\n<a href="http:\/\/www.pocketgamer.biz\/job-news\/59133\/ex-disney-mobile-exec-tim-obrien-joins-scopely-as-cro\/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http:\/\/www.pocketgamer.biz\/job-news\/59133\/ex-disney-mobile-exec-tim-obrien-joins-scopely-as-cro\/<\/a>"}}]},{"title":{"en":"Disney mobile games guru Tim O’Brien jumps to Scopely as CRO","es":"Disney mobile games guru Tim O’Brien jumps to Scopely as CRO"},"date":"2014-05-22","seo":{"title":"Disney mobile games guru Tim O’Brien jumps to Scopely as CRO"},"externalLink":"https:\/\/www.vox.com\/2014\/5\/22\/11627168\/disney-mobile-games-guru-tim-obrien-jumps-to-scopely","slug":"disney-mobile-games-guru-tim-obrien-jumps-to-scopely","thumb":"","category":"62a307909ca8b40009396906","image":"\/uploads\/2014\/05\/REC_Wordmark_Red_RGB.0-copy.png","video":null,"video_placeholder_image":null,"textPreview":{"en":"O'Brien, who will serve as Scopely's Chief Revenue Officer, worked on 'Tapulous' pre-Disney and helped launch both 'Where's My Water?' and 'Tap Tap Revenge'"},"creationDate":"2014-05-22 5:04:17","content":[{"modelName":"PostText","key":"","position":20,"text":{"en":"[https:\/\/www.vox.com\/2014\/5\/22\/11627168\/disney-mobile-games-guru-tim-obrien-jumps-to-scopely](https:\/\/www.vox.com\/2014\/5\/22\/11627168\/disney-mobile-games-guru-tim-obrien-jumps-to-scopely)"}}]},{"title":{"en":"Former Disney, EA exec Javier Ferreira joins Scopely as COO","es":"Former Disney, EA exec Javier Ferreira joins Scopely as COO"},"date":"2014-04-15","seo":{"title":"Former Disney, EA exec Javier Ferreira joins Scopely as COO"},"externalLink":"http:\/\/blogs.wsj.com\/cmo\/2014\/04\/15\/hot-mobile-games-company-scopely-nabs-former-disney-executive\/","slug":"hot-mobile-games-company-scopely-nabs-former-disney-executive-2","thumb":"","category":"62a307909ca8b40009396906","image":"\/uploads\/2014\/04\/Wall-Street-Journal-Logo-copy.png","video":null,"video_placeholder_image":null,"textPreview":{"en":"Ferreira, former SVP of Publishing at Disney Interactive, is Scopely's new chief operating officer.
