Wildlife Studios, one of the world’s largest and most successful mobile game studios, has more than 60 mobile games in their portfolio, across Android and iOS. Whether they’re launching new titles or shipping updated content to live games, they’ve built their reputation on their ability to continually delight users with some of the best mobile experiences in gaming.

Key to maximizing game quality and organic discoverability is meeting the strict technical requirements of The App Store and Google Play — not an easy feat when delivering cutting-edge experiences to a diverse, worldwide audience.

In this presentation, Wildlife Studios Manager of Engineering Operations, Lucas Klegen, shares how his teams maximize and maintain high technical performance at scale, including how they’re:

- Keeping games consistently below the Google Play Console bad behavior thresholds.
- Increasing the frequency in which games are featured across The App Store and Google Play.
- Leveraging best-in-class insights to focus on actual issues and not false alarms.
- Anticipating issues before having to hear about them from players.
