Gamecloud: PopCap Interview
Kapalka and Gwertzman - I wish we could say we had a magic formula for determining what makes a game like Bejeweled such a huge success, but we donít. What we do know, however, is when we here at PopCap have a great time playing one of our own game and ultimately thatís what we shoot for. We donít release a game that we develop ourselves until nearly everyone here has played it and thinks itís ready to put the PopCap name on. As a result, sometimes it takes quite a long time for a given game to ship and we often shelve games that are otherwise looking quite polished just because theyíre not fun enough.
Some things we can say about Bejeweled, however, is that it is extremely simple to learn how to play, itís very polished and attractive, and the core mechanic is deeply satisfying in a fundamental way. Those are important attributes that we try to build into all of our games.
