Flaregames hires Marja Konttinen, the resurgence of simple games, and how Super Evil Megacorp created Vainglory

When you think about mobile eSports, one of the games sure to come to mind is Vainglory, a MOBA that has slowly built its way up into one of the biggest competitive games on mobile.

It's been a long road to get there, and our interview with Super Evil Megacorp's CEO Kristian Segerstrale detailing how the company built itself up over the last three years certainly intrigued our readers, making it our most read article of last week.

Second on our Hot Five list is an article from Kwalee CEO David Darling, who stopped by to write about how mobile games today are a lot like games on the old Commodore 64.

Jobs, IPOs and interactive fiction

Third up, Flaregames has hired Rovio's former Marketing Director Marja Konttinen as its new Head of Brand Management to take over marketing for its titles.

And finally, Jon Jordan takes some time to deconstruct what Rovio's IPO actually means and Jam City breaks out of its usual genres to try its hand at interactive fiction.
