In a time-poor world run by memes and short attention spans, breaking into the mobile market requires two things: a plan, and an unforgettable hook. This is something that resonates with Mighty Games’ Tim Best, who knows exactly how important it is not just to create an accessible product, but to make sure players get a dopamine hit whenever they blast zany voxel enemies with missiles and guns.
