It probably says a lot about a game’s success when the advertisement is featured in a Super bowl game. And let’s not forget that an acting heavy-weight like Liam Neeson playing the role of the gamer.The story of Clash of Clans started in Finland where the company that created it, Supercell, first opened its doors. Now, if you’re thinking that Finland is an odd place for a gaming company, a successful one at that, think again. The company is Nokia. So, let’s just say that the Finnish know their technology. Supercell began its journey in 2010 as a small company of about 15 people working in small teams to develop cross-platform games. This was well before Clash of Clans was even an idea. After all, a year in the IT and Gaming industry is equal to ten years in the normal world.
Between 2010 and 2012, Supercell had opened an office in the States and was working developing games tailor-made of mobile-platforms. The company had moved away from cross-platform game by this time. The company’s first real successful game was actually Hay Day, which had great player engagement from day one. It was a mobile farming game, though and the developers at Supercell were looking for something different.
