Apps I Live By: Dirtybit Game Designer And 2D Artist, Fredrik Fors Hansen

Have you ever heard of newly released Fun Run 2? It was actually created by Fredrik, a game designer and artist at Dirtybit.

If you didn’t know, Dirtybit was the first ever company that emerged successful with a real-time multiplayer mobile game – Fun Run. Based in Norway, the company is formed by two students in 2011 and now boasts a strength of 8 employees.

As of August 2014, Fun Run had a whopping 45 million worldwide downloads. Within 3 months since the game launched, it was the #1 app in the US Apple Apps Store. How about that!

Today, we have the privilege to speak to the creator of Fun Run 2, Fredrik Fors Hansen.
