How TouchTen touched the hearts of gamers and investors (#StartupAsia preview)

You may not have heard of TouchTen Games, but if you’ve spent an idle moment or two browsing through the iOS App Store, you’ve probably come across one of their titles. Sushi Chain, Ramen Chain, the Flappy Bird-inspired Amazing Cupid, and other casual games have brought in a sizeable fan base for the Jakarta-based company. Last May the startup revealed it raised a series B round from Japan’s CyberAgent Ventures, marking the startup’s first cash injection from a major foreign investor, and the VC’s first investment in a mobile game firm.

How has that fundraising round helped TouchTen grow? How has its relationship with CyberAgent changed the way the company operates? If casual games are a hit-based industry, how can a team of hardcore game-lovers ensure that they produce a hit that reaches millions? These are some of the issues that Anton Soeharyo, CEO and cofounder at TouchTen Games, will cover during his speech at this year’s Startup Asia Tokyo 2014, on September 3 and 4.
