This mobile app era is a best time for app developers and entrepreneurs to insert their creativity in releasing new titles for app stores. One can raise its business through mobile apps. But is the situation same for mobile games?
In deep corners of our hearts, a game player lives jumping up whenever our eyes get a view of game. We are game players from childhood, even when smartphones were not there. So, we can be creative and skilful with a mobile gaming idea, but we can’t be confident because it’s a matter of risk. A risk of huge investment and a fear of idea failure are attached with an opportunity to be a next Supercell.
While browsing through app stores, you will find some titles at top like Supercell, King, etc that will increase your confidence. At the same time, when you scroll down, you will meet with games – seems like thrown at the corner of the app store. This will surely bring you down. Generally, to be positive or negative depends on us, but in this case, it depends on our gaming idea.
If you are sure with your ideas, you can step ahead to take risks with positivity. Alex Mendelev, CEO of TinyMob Games said that he has some philosophical ideas that help him to take risks with his mobile games. You have to be sure like this with your ideas that can motivate you to take risks.
Next after mobile game development plans, marketing and funding will become a crucial part of your mobile game’s success. Mobile game development + launch + marketing = big bucks. If you are well-versed with development programs, you should not be worried about high costs. But those with less or zero development skills require hiring a game developer and a game marketer which must cost you high. It can be difficult to build a mobile game for those with poor pockets. Thus, make sure your project should not be left half-done because of financial issues.
If plans are for Indie game studio, then work alone or with your hired developer. But a mobile game development business needs a talented and passionate team. You need a team of game developers, a game testing team, a game marketing team and the one who can hire them all. Again a big investment. At initial stage, it’s good to walk alone as you don’t know whether the game would be a success or not. Later, you can hire a big team that can take care of your growing game’s success.
At last, keep in mind certain factors for a game development business: powerful idea that can take risk, development, marketing, funding, team and a ton of hard work.
