Have you heard about this tiny, up-and-coming indie game called Candy Crush Saga? If you haven't, welcome to the Internet, and I'm flattered that this is the first thing you chose to read. If you have, don't feel special; it looks like everyone else has too.
King, the company responsible for the worldwide phenomenon, has announced that Candy Crush Saga has been installed 500 million times throughout the course of its lifespan. That number reflects downloads across Facebook, and iOS and Android devices. Equally impressive is that 1 in 23 Facebook users have installed the game.
Well, here's confirmation that an alarming percentage of the human population has played this game. I'm doing my part to combat it by staying strong in my resolve to never give anyone Candy Crush Saga lives, whatever that means.
