King is the leading interactive entertainment company for the mobile world, with people all around the world playing one or more of our games. We have more than 180 fun titles in 14 languages. Our hits include Candy Crush Saga, Farm Heroes Saga, Papa Pear Saga, Pet Rescue Saga and Bubble Witch Saga. We have over 324 million average monthly unique users, as of December 31, 2013, across web, social and mobile platforms. At King, we design casual games with a broad appeal, which are easy to learn and challenging to master, allowing people to play for a moment, then move on with their day and pick up their game later. Our games are also synchronised across platforms, allowing players to switch seamlessly between devices and platforms and continue their game wherever they left off, so they can play anywhere, any time and on any device. For us, this is encapsulated in the idea of bitesized entertainment. We make our games available for free, while players can purchase virtual items priced relative to the entertainment value they provide. We embed social features in our games that enhance the player experience. We also build on a unique and passionate company culture predicated on collaboration, humility and respect. We believe all of these elements in combination have made our games a great part of our players’ daily entertainment. King has six game studios in Stockholm, Barcelona, Bucharest, Malmö and London, along with offices in San Francisco and Malta.
