FC Barcelona player Gerard Piqué for a live Twitch broadcast on Monday, April 18 – 9 AM PDT, 6 PM CET. During the live broadcast, Gerard Piqué will showcase his app Final Kick, which is available through the Amazon Underground program.
Spanish Footballer Gerard Piqué founded Kerad Games in 2012 and went on to create and distribute popular football games. In December 2015, Gerard Piqué launched Final Kick in Amazon Underground making the game 100% free for Amazon Underground customers. Final Kick is a freemium game where customers pay for in-app purchases on all other platforms, but those in-app purchase are 100% free on Amazon Underground.
We recently sat down with Piqué to learn about Final Kick and how they have seen an increase in downloads and revenue since launching in Amazon Underground.
“The mobile game industry moved a few years ago from paid to freemium. I see the Amazon Underground model as the new big movement for the mobile game industry,” said Gerard Piqué, owner of Kerad Games. “We saw immediately that Final Kick was perfect for Underground so we decided to join the Underground program and become a launch partner. We are very happy to collaborate so closely with Amazon.”
