The history of Snake: How the Nokia game defined a new era for the mobile industry

Let's start with a throwback to the 90's. Nokia's Snake was truly the first mobile game (outside of Japan) to make it biiiiig. Everyone played it. And not long after it was launched, I (at my old company Massive), was asked by Ericsson to make a pre-study of what games could fit their upcoming T28 phone. We actually ended up developing Eritris/Tetris (yes, Ericsson did run in to some copyright issues); perhaps the most "best-selling" game I've ever had the chance to contribute to. 😃
