Tommy Palm While he’s known for shepherding Candy Crush Saga to mobile – and so helping to bankroll King’s $7 billion IPO in 2014 – Tommy Palm’s success story stretches back to the 1980s, when he began programming games for the Commodore 64. Between then and the dizzying success of King’s bestseller, Palm founded five including this latest venture, Resolution Games, a development studio with an eye on creating virtual reality and augmented reality games experiences everyone can enjoy. Their mobile VR fishing game, Bait!, is already proving their concept as its known as one of the most popular VR titles of all time, while their carnival-themed VR game, Wonderglade, is one of the highest rated on Daydream. Turning towards the embryonic potential of VR and AR rather than resting on his mobile gaming laurels might seem a bold bet for Tommy. But, this serial mover and shaker prefers being ahead of the pack when it comes to new technology, saying it’s the only way to be in the sweet spot when the revolutionary is ready for the limelight.
