Kwalee, the Leamington Spa iOS game developer founded by David Darling, has always tried to be as open as possible. Their website, kwalee.com, reveals a lot about the company and its staff, with frequent daily updates and constant activity.
However, Kwalee are taking this process a stage further by creating a public forum where anyone can say whatever he or she wants, discussing games, just by logging in with their Facebook account.
The forum is used by the Kwalee staff, so it is possible to directly address the people behind Gobang Social as well as the various games that are currently in the works.
You can see part of the Kwalee team adding to the forum here: http://flic.kr/p/bBRhPN
Kwalee CMO, Bruce Everiss, is delighted:
"It has always been a core company policy to communicate, in both directions, as effectively as possible with our potential customers. This new forum is another step in these efforts and we look forward to what the world has to say to us."
The forum is up and running with several conversations started by Kwalee staff and can be found at: http://forums.kwalee.com
Feedback on their debut game, Gobang Social is always welcome, including ways to improve gameplay.

Staff Twitter profiles are also listed on the people page, at kwalee.com/people for more behind the scenes comments and opinions of everyone at Kwalee.
