1. "Tell us about your background, Dieter. How did you get started with app development?"

"We are working in a joint venture spirit with all our studios. In 2012 one of our closest partners and us  developed the PC game Bridge Constructor, and we decided that this would be the perfect product to enter the mobile space. We have been very fortunate as this title went to #1 in over 30 countries including the USA, has received over 30 million downloads and enabled us to enter the app development space with a great flagship title."
