Profile – Like a Boss Games
Who are Like a Boss? Could you briefly outline the studios origins and its keys figures?
We develop mobile games for hardcore sports fans and our very humble goal is to be one of the worlds leading sports gaming studios in 3-4 years.
In a smaller studio like us everyone in the team are key figures with backgrounds from gaming companies such as EA, King, Gameloft, GLU, Starbreeze etc
What would you describe as the company philosophy to development and as a team?
As a team its all about each individual taking their full personal responsibility of being nice, working hard and having fun.
You’re working on developing a sports game for mobile platforms. Could you expand on the projects concept and what sets it apart from the competition?
As the studio head, you have extensive experience from the games industry in a variety of roles, what aspects of lessons learned do you hope to bring to the LAB table?
What has been your most pressing challenge so far with the studio?
What words of wisdom would you impart to an aspiring developer / studio looking to break into the ever shifting industry landscape?
But to make life easier for new studio without a huge existing player base or marketing budgets equalling Zlatans wage, its always good to go for a smaller specific niche / sub genre without a dominating category leader and were you know your audience, as well as to always innovate ( were it matters)
Who are the developers you look to for inspiration?
Im also still inspired by King’s old journey from the original king.com web portal to facebook and later on making it even bigger on mobile, unfortunately they arent the most inspiring any longer but that past journey through different platforms is more impressive than what most people give them credit for.
In terms of persons in the industry its Kristian Segerstråle that worked at EA same time as I did and is currently running Vainglory, he is doing everything right it seems. Google his CV and you will see what I mean.
On a daily basis I get inspired by the team, its always inspiring to be surrounded by great and talented colleagues that are passionate about what they do.
What’s next I the pipeline for LAB in the coming months?
