I’m a software developer. I make mobile games, among other things. I’m also a Dad to two teenage children. The combination of the two leads me to watching what they’re doing with their mobile phones.
Back when the indie game “Threes” came out I bought a copy and played it. I didn’t mention the game to my kids, but not too long after I saw my older daughter playing “2048”, so I said:
“Oh, I see you playing 2048. That’s really just a copy of another game called Threes. Do you want to play that?”
“Uh… OK. I’ll try it.”
