We’ve all played match 3 games, but the genre itself has seen limited innovation in recent years. However, Candivore and its hit game Match Masters – which features PvP and new monetization mechanics – are changing the narrative. 

In this episode, we talk to Candivore’s co-founder and CEO Gal Goldstein about the multi-year journey in developing Match Masters, scaling up its success, and raising money (most recently in a ~$100M round led by Haveli). Gal also holds unique perspectives on keeping teams lean, Candivore’s end goal, and how the match 3 genre will evolve in the future.

If you’re interested in innovating, iterating, and scaling mobile games, you’ll enjoy this episode.
