148Apps 2013 wrAPP-Up - Why Candy Crush Saga was the Biggest Game of the Year

Posted by Carter Dotson on December 31st, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Candy Crush Saga would be perhaps an ill-fitting choice for the game of 2013: it was hardly the "best" game of the year by traditional "Game of the Year" metrics, and it didn't even release in 2013. But Candy Crush Saga was still the game that defined mobile gaming in 2013.

There weren't many games that were the cultural phenomenon that Candy Crush Saga was: walk down the aisle of an airplane and there was always someone on a tablet or phone matching fruits around. It was the one mobile game that friends who never talked about mobile gaming would talk about. And it wasn't just casual gamers: anyone who's friends with Touch Arcade editor Eli Hodapp on Facebook suffered the wrath of his lives requests for a while there.

The thing that was most fascinating about Candy Crush Saga, though? Did anyone really have an unequivocal, gushing love for it? Whenever the game would be brought up, there was always some degree of resentment toward it for being so addictive, in the sense that people just could not stop playing, paying, and bugging their Facebook friends with requests.

King, the company behind Candy Crush Saga, has partnered with Happy Socks to bring forth stylish and, hopefully, comfortable socks inspired by Candy Crush Saga. One pair is based on the chocolaty Color Bomb while the other is based on Striped Candy. You can pre-order the socks exclusively on the Happy Socks website at $12 dollars each. The custom Candy Crush Saga socks come in universal sizes for both men and women.

"Candy Crush Saga has become nothing short of a worldwide phenomenon- a game that people can play and enjoy anywhere, any time. With that in mind, it's only fitting that the first licensing deal is with Happy Socks, giving all those who love the game the chance to revel in the fun of Candy Crush Saga, literally right down to their toes.” said Riccardo Zacconi, King’s CEO and co-founder, in a press release.

Obviously, I wasn't so sure about this news as I began reading about it, but once I saw those socks, I became ecstatic!
