Chapter 5, “Facebook Design Lessons from KIXEYE and 5th Planet Games,” goes in-depth with some designers who’ve mastered the fun experience part, whereas this chapter focuses on the other two factors—revenue and virality. 45 TIP Instead of assuming that Facebook games are successful because they are addiction-forming Skinner boxes that force players into a loop of behavior they don’t enjoy, talk to people who enjoy playing such games to understand how they play them and why.
