Enjoy the April Edition of the Kolibri Games Newsletter. This is where we review the events of the past month and keep you updated on recent company and product milestones.
Load your trucks, there is a fire emergency incoming! On April 19th, Team Pathfinder globally launched our newest game Idle Firefighter Tycoon and our players propelled it directly into the top charts. After weeks of improving and fine-tuning the gameplay and design (completely remotely!), our fire station is now live and in action. Gareth and Björn from team Pathfinder explain here what important role player feedback and data take on in developing new and successful games.
And this is not the only hot news coming from us this month. We are also proud to announce the first episode of the Kolibri Games Podcast. Listen to Michelle, as she maps her way from Teacher to Player Support Agent at Kolibri Games – including visa troubles, moving to Germany, and of course, working with our players. You can find the podcast here or on your favorite audio app. Don’t forget to subscribe and follow us for all future episodes.

To mark one year of remote work, we interviewed (over Zoom, naturally) some of our co-workers and asked them what they learned over the past year. Check out the video here.
