Last month we caught up with the Supercell team, including CEO Ilkka Paananen, Squad Busters game lead Eino Joas and marketing head Rob Lowe, to discuss the origins of the game, their ambitions for the title, and why it's a "love letter" to Supercell IPs.

We also spoke with our Mobile Mavens to gather expert industry opinion on the title and its potential, which you can find here and here.
