world's TOP5 women who they believe to be the most prominent in tech.
Amongst these, is the Russian Alisa Chumachenko, founder and CEO of "Game Insight
International", one of the largest gaming platforms in Russia.
Here is our interview with Alisa from TechCrunch Moscow 2012,
where she spoke to RusBase about the latest trends in the mobile gaming

a great country to do business in mobile.
Game Insight is a private mobile game developer and publisher
based in Moscow. Led by chief executive Alisa Chumachenko, the company has
quietly grown into a powerhouse of the industry as its games take off in Russia
and around the globe.
The company isn’t as well known in the U.S., but today it is making a little
noise. Chumachenko revealed in an interview with GamesBeat that the company’s
games have both high numbers of users and sizable gross revenues too.
Mystery Manor, which has more than 34 million registered users worldwide, has
generated $63 million in gross revenue. My Country has 18 million users
worldwide and has generated $12 million in revenue. Paradise Island has 54
million users and revenue of more than $25 million. Airport City has 37 million
users and $33 million in revenues. The Tribez has 14 million users and $38
million in revenues.
Those aren’t as big as King’s Candy Crush Saga, but it’s nothing to sneeze
at. From just five games, Game Insight has generated 157 million users and $171
million in revenue. Many of the company’s games are casual titles that appeal to
both men and women, and lots of them aren’t big hits.
Game Insight is one of the game companies that tries a lot of things to see
what sticks. But more recently ithas been creating mid-core games, or those that
appeal to hardcore games but with short play sessions, such as Tank
