Get Ready for Happy Hour!

You might have noticed some interesting changes in our latest DASH game, most noticeably the addition of a super awesome, new ‘Happy Hour’ feature.

Happy Hour is a fun, light hearted feature that rewards you for keeping your customers happy.

Throughout each round, customers will have different icons above their heads. This is known as ‘flair’ and the more flair you collect, the longer happy hour will last.

When the timer runs out, the disco ball drops. Once happy hour starts, you’ll have a limited time to get bonus points! Make the most of this time, as you can really get a lot of extra points.

We hope you enjoy this new feature, and we can’t wait to see the awesome scores you guys can reach!

Meet the Team: Chris Gregan

It’s been a little while since we’ve had a ‘Meet the Team’ post and we thought the blog was well overdue for a few more. This week, we are happy to introduce Chris Gregan, PlayFirst’s Chief Architect working in Dublin, Ireland.

(Yes, we have an office in Ireland! Cool, right?)

1. Can you briefly describe your role here at PlayFirst?
My job title at PlayFirst is Chief Architect. The role involves a lot of research and development into new games technology. I work closely with the rest of the team to find new ways to improve the gameplay experience for our customers. I also manage a fantastic team of game developers based here in Dublin, Ireland.

2. What's your favorite part about your job?
Having the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the most talented people in the industry. It's also really cool to see the games we've worked so hard to create topping the charts!

3. Who is your favorite PlayFirst character?
The fire-breathing Bridezilla from Wedding Dash. I love my old Godzilla movies!

4. What's life like in Ireland? (compared to what you've heard/seen of the U.S)
I think we have a lot in common with the US. People are generally friendly and relaxed and there's a strong sense of community. It's a good place to live and raise a family. Like the US, we've had a tough few years with the economy but there's a growing feeling now that the country is getting back on it's feet.

5. What part of St. Patrick's Day is your favorite? (ie. Food, parade?)
Bringing the kids down to the local parade and meeting up with the family is always great fun. The organizers don't have any money to spend on fancy floats or marching bands but it's really just about meeting up and having a good time.

----------------
Thanks to Chris for letting us interview him last minute!
Hopefully we can introduce a few more of our Irish team in the coming weeks.
