    Thank you @CandyCrushinator (nice name by the way😉) ... thank you for your work as a designer .. I am working as interior designer so I know it is not just fun... It is a hard work too...

    I love this outfit so much and I hope to have it .. nice work in the design 👍😊
    (For some reason I can't make a picture on posts now 😂)
    This is the outfit I am talking about

    Olivia design is fun too .. I once played with her .. and my little kids loved her dancing so much 😆
    (I don't know how... but she is not in my scrapbook😂!!!)

    Nice funny moments you talked about .. I wish they make a video about the Candy Crush Friends Saga designers... and you all talk about the designs and about yourselves too .. It will be cool to see that ☺🌷

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm glad that I get the chance to talk to you all :-).

    @Elsa I wish I could take credit for Bubblegum Troll's *ahem* unique attack animation, but that was the work of our extreeeemely talented animators.  They are the people who bring our friends to life so they get to decide how to do it :-).

    @melhence episode selection is on the's honestly a few features down but we hope to get there someday in the not too far future.

    @CandyCrushinator how large is your entire team in the studio?  I didn't realize that you guys have separate animators, totally separate from the graphic artists.  So how does this work?  Is it one group of graphic artists that do the backgrounds on the board.  Another group that does the new outfits for the friends?  Another to do the animations?  Another group to do the fun events.  How many separate groups make up the one large group?

    Thanks for taking the time to share with us @CandyCrushinator and thanks for being so interactive in the community. You were the first Kingster I saw who was in the threads often helping out and just interacting with players. I for one definitely appreciated it.

    @CandyCrushinator - I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you more when you pop into our area and it’s amazing for us to have that interaction. I would love to find out since your from the Windy City if you are a Cubs or WhiteSox fan. I am a huge ⚾️ fan and one of those in particular. Either way I just wanted to say please keep coming around and providing your feedback as it adds an instrumental element to our community 🙏🏻

    I agree with everyone else here that having a kingster like @CandyCrushinator around in the Community is a great thing! :3

    I believe having @CandyCrushinator involved in the community is great for a few reasons. ;) The first is that we receive unique insight into where the game we know and love is going as well as listening and responding to our feedbacks! :hurrah:

    I think these are things that myself, and I'm sure the rest of the community greatly appreciates/is thankful for 😄

    P.S. I enjoyed the interview you had with our beloved @QueenMia as well! :3

    If I was a King game also it would have to be Candy Crush Friends as you guys have done a great job with this game! 😍

    I was born on the North Side so I bleed Cubbie Blue :-).  I foster no ill will towards the White Sox but see them as just another team that I don't care about...unless they're playing the Cubs in which case I want them to lose :-D

    Yes Elsa we have 3D artists for the maps, characters and generic objects.  We have 3D animators for the characters.  We have UI artists and UX designers.  We have Designers for the overall game and specifically for levels.  There are programmers of every way, shape and form from server code to gameplay to events and more.  We have several hundred people in the office here in Stockholm working on Candy 1, Soda and Friends so to answer your question without going into specifics we have a few people on our team :-)

    Wow @CandyCrushinator that must be some HUGE office!  I wish I lived there because I'd love to tour your office to see what all of you do.  Thanks for all this information!
