Reigns achieves 600,000 downloads, Peter Vesterbacka joins Lightneer, and why you should get into Hong Kong

As developers of free-to-play titles all know, landing a highly-engaged user, or a "whale" as they are sometimes known, can help boost your revenues in a magnificent way.

So it's no wonder that our most read article of last week was a guide on how to get into, and find success in, the "whale market" that is Hong Kong.

Coming in second place is the news that Peter Vesterbacka has joined educational developer Lightneer, which also closed a €2.8 million funding round as it pushes on with its first game.

Acquistions, Asia, and achievements

Third, we asked our Mobile Mavens if Supercell should be looking to acquiring new studios, following hints from Ilkka Paananen that the developer might well do so.

And finally, we talk to Goodgame Studios about its upcoming Asian-style RPG Infernals, and indie strategy title swipes 600,000 downloads.
