    That is literally the million dollar question, how do you make a game go viral?

    The best solution to it that I've seen is about a 70-30 split in:
    70% of an app/game's success goes into it's marketing/promotion
    30% of an app/game's success is based on the quality of the app/game(seamless UX, quality of experience)

    I think for those who have large social media followings, getting a successful launch shouldn't be too much of a gamble. We've all seen the horrible quality games hitting top charts everyday due to the great push in downloads the publishers can get from their large social following.

    As for making something go viral, that really does depend on a factor of luck I'm afraid

    HE has 8 Million Fans on Facebook, he simply does what we used to call "share for share" back in the days. Someone creates a video just for color switch like "When its lunch break but you want to play color switch" Fortafy gets videos to promote his app and it reaches the audience of the video creator too! In return, the video creator gets his page shared on Fortafy's 8million likes page, i think fortafy pays the creator with a lot of audience. He really made a good fucking plan and it surely is working. Everything he shares now is related to his app and i see people in my college playing that game all the time. So it was good marketing strategy + addictive game which made this app soo famous.
