When asked how she solves the most difficult obstacles in her work, “Very simple – with lots of love and dedication. Each obstacle or problem has a solution. Someone may say “that is impossible”, but I strongly believe that there is no problem that cannot be solved. It is only a matter of time, means and results.”
Speaking about the gaming products, “Seavus is proud to have a great portfolio in terms of success in developing its own products and commercial projects tailored for our customers. In the past 2 years Seavus has seen a particular success with our game Yatzy, which currently records over 4 million downloads and is the leader in its category on Windows Phone and iOS platform. Confirmation of the success was the high rating and the positive reviews the players from all around the world shared on the Appstore and Windows Phone Store. Yatzy ranks number one in the charts in several countries, and is particularly popular in the United States, France, Germany and the Scandinavian countries.”
