Given the incredible growth of the mobile gaming industry as well as success of European based mobile gaming studios such as Supercell, King, and Rovio a wide range of investors are actively pursuing and conducting investments in the games industry. However, the key attributes or criteria these investors are looking for continue to rise and become increasingly difficult to acquire.
