      Hi Roj,

      Walter did a great job, we expect nothing less from you. 😉

      But with all the goals for the next years, please don’t overwork the team – they did a great job the last years, with only about two handful of people, and made lots of complicated stuff really easy for us. They deserve to be treated as the geniuses they are! My team and me are really thankful, without the Corona Labs SDK it would not have been possible to create our games so fast and stable (zero issues on iOS side, almost no issues on Android side, with millions of players).

      Have a nice Christmas Time,

    Welcome. When you buy the company I suppose that you can have any position that you want. CEO sounds reasonable.

    Interesting a Perks card company buying a development platform. I have played with Corona for many years and I was coming back to it which is how I found this thread. I guess with this new ownership.. which I find odd I will hold off until we see what you allow the team to do.

    Here is to seeing what you guys do.
