King.com releases new Candy Crush Saga highlights

candycrushsagalogoKing.com’s Candy Crush Saga is still the No. 1 Facebook game in terms of daily active users, and the developer today released an infographic revealing a number of factoids about both the game and what it’s meant for the company.

Most of the details featured in the graphic reference in-game milestones, like how the combined playtime by players totals to more than 100,000 years and over 1 trillion candies have been crushed in the game. However, there are a couple of more interesting points about the game’s traffic and audience demographics mixed in.

In terms of traffic, it’s been revealed that Candy Crush saga saw over 10 million mobile downloads during December 2012. The game’s player base continues to be dominated by women: 69 percent of users are women, 30 percent men and 1 percent of players are of an unknown gender.

The success of the game has allowed King.com to continue growing, something we’ve noted based on the constant appearance of the company in our regular hiring posts. It turns out the developer wound up doubling its workforce in 2012 and it’s planning to expand further in 2013.
