Ben Brode talks Marvel Snap and tragic backstories | Pocket

At Gamescom 2023, we had the opportunity to interview Ben Brode, the chief development officer at Second Dinner. Brode, known for his work on Hearthstone, has become a key figure in the success of Marvel Snap. His previous experience in card games brought legitimacy to Snap even before its release. Second Dinner can also be credited with helping Nuverse, the publisher of Marvel Snap, reach new heights. With a talented development team, a popular franchise IP, and a game that players love, Marvel Snap has become a flagship title.

Marvel Snap is now available on both PC and mobile platforms, allowing players to enjoy the game wherever they are. Brode enthusiastically welcomes players to experience Marvel Snap in their preferred way, whether on the train, at home, or during a quick break. The game’s quick-paced three-minute rounds were designed to provide a fast and engaging collectible card game experience. The goal was to create a game that could be played in short bursts, allowing players to fit it into their busy schedules.

Working with Marvel has been a dream come true for Brode and his team. They have had the opportunity to add their own unique take on the Marvel Universe, highlighting lesser-known characters and introducing exciting new variants. Marvel Snap’s journey is far from over, with plans for continuous updates and additions based on player feedback. The team is determined to make the game bigger and better, providing a satisfying experience for both casual players and aspiring eSports competitors.

The success of Marvel Snap has had a significant impact on Second Dinner. As a studio of 80 people, the responsibility of supporting their livelihoods is not lost on Brode. The game has become a pillar of the studio and has allowed many individuals to provide for their families. Brode expresses his humility and gratitude for being part of such an incredible team and the opportunity to continue expanding Marvel Snap.
