Mobile Gaming Development

Mobile games are the great example of successful mobile application which range from simple free games to paid games, of course with a lot of in-app purchases available in the “free games” for players to fasten up their mobile gaming experiences.

In-app purchases itself has been the fundamental sales of any games for decades. It’s mostly found in any games but mostly in the MMORPG games. A massive multiplayer role-playing game is the best way to make profitable in-app sales, because it involves competition among players. Let’s say a website games like Wartune has been embedded their in-app purchase in monthly events, and weekly events, and its getting costly for players to get even catch up with the big shark players of the game.

In-app purchases makes a player stays ahead in the game and also make game challenges easier and satisfactory. But is it going to beat the revenue of game’s platform like PS4, X-Box, and Microsoft? I surely doubt that.

So how much the cost to build a mobile app? Kinvey said at the average of USD 270,000 per app which can be developed in 7 to 12 months. The most expensive mobile games among them are Clown Punching game (USD 300) and Gun Bros Apathy Bear (USD 600), which is totally not worth it to purchase. With that amount of money, you can get few awesome games with lower prize.

With that being said, what are the pros and cons of mobile games compared to other platforms?

Pros :

  1. Despite the fact that they are games in Mobile Phone with lesser graphic than other platform, it is actually still has it’s edge on the excellent graphics and sound, but of course there are bunch of worst graphic games which i rather not say.
  2. It has pretty much simple control for more challenging games, and easy game controls. As such in shooting games like Gangstar New Orleans, it use pretty much perfect auto aim.
  3. They are cheap and low cost but still fun and satisfactory to pass time or to build character over time, such as Blades of Brims and Pro Evolution Soccer Club Manager which you don’t have to be there everyday to do the game but simply do it when you have time.
  4. As many other games, some mobile games can be very addictive, and there the in-app purchases offer is there for you to engage.
  5. It has the multiplayer also, league, and leaderboards which extend the game further which are very great for competitions.

Cons :

  1. Mobile Games are very easy to dismissed by the Developer, I have 4 to 5 games that i play consistently and someday the developers “SADLY” stop its production, meanwhile I already “invested” in the game with my in-app purchases.
  2. Some game difficulty is inconsistent, easy games are great, but going to a dungeon with same level enemies as the characters and still die is unthinkable.
  3. There is some problem with mobile screen for finger sweeps, a fps game with manual shooting is hell for mobile game, but even with other type of games, sometimes we missed the finger placements.
  4. Some levels are repetitive and you have to use many sweep tickets for obtaining a lot of resources for upgrades which pretty much unbelievable took time if you do manual grinding.

So, final words, mobile gaming has low cost development rather than any other platform games, yet it has provide gamers with easy and great value even though the control is not as comfortable as console or PC gaming as an example.

But any video games has very great opportunities to grow no matter what platform they were, and selling video games is one of other thing people do to make money out of this enormous games developments.

Game Is Way More Expensive Than Porn

Game Industry is really going very fast, we notice the changes of graphic so much and it’s getting better and better. Let’s say Horizon Zero Dawn, which is already sold about 3.5 million copies. So, why Guerilla Games eager to build a fascinating world of Horizon Zero Dawn, and with that kind of graphic, how much is this cost?

Horizon Zero Dawn costs around USD 47 million. It’s such a huge amount for a game, while the most expensive porn movie budget is at USD 8 million. Compare to how much the customers of these two kind of industry, porn has gain higher customers than games.

So what makes game producer expenses that much of money? In the case of Guerilla Games, they branded Horizon Zero Dawn as risky game, yet in the end was a big success. It’s part of their brainstorming of “had enough KillZone” idea which then brought them to Horizon.

Anyway, both porn and game is short and only based on story, when it reached the end, you stop playing. Of course, they can inject it with Events to make it more interesting for players to play it again. It’s more interesting with Guerilla Games , a team of 270 people, that make a game outside of their genre in which they have been success with KillZone anyway.

“Pirates” is the american pornographic action-adventure film with the first budget at USD 1 million and the sequel at USD 8 million. Well, Jesse Jane, Teagan Presley and Devon there, who doesn’t want to watch. But porn industry is much tougher than Game Industry. The competition is huge, and the preferences is unbelievably vast, the sacrifice of the people to make things different is unthinkable, take Sasha Grey as the example.

If that is not enough ensuring, let’s compare the most expensive game budget in the history with the most expensive movie budget in mankind history.

We are talking about Grand Theft Auto V. So how much is the cost to build a game complicated as GTA V? It hits roughly at USD 265 million, and it hits USD 1 billion in sales. This game is totally expanding and growing. A lot of gamers still play this game, and this game offers a lot of activities and a badass experiences. Do what you got to do, play as you want to play, be a bad person or a good person, well but mostly bad.

Let’s compare this to the Pirates of Caribbean : On Stranger Tides (2011), it costs around USD 397 million. Do you see huge money here? Yes, but it stops there. Once you done with the movie you stop there. Meanwhile, games are still growing with sales increasing over time. So maintaining that sales, games producers will take their game to another level by increasing, improving everything which will cost them money over time too.

So, my point is that with all these considerations, games are much costly than porn or even blockbuster movies. It’s not how big, it’s how many. You can produce something and done with it, choose to produce small but it grows over time. {click to tweet} Surely, it will be beneficial for small and grows. That’s the reason why game producer take much money and invest in their game so that it will grows over time.

That’s what happen in the game industry where then people even has a job to even test a game in exchange of decent money. Check this out!

Help Me I’m Too Scared!

I have never been a fan of scary thing! The fact that I have to control myself is a burden. I am excited to watch any scary movies, and most of them is only making people surprise.

I think this will give me a heart attack sooner or later. It’s just so graphic, blood everywhere, my hand being chopped and eaten by them. It’s total full cannibalism, brutal, and that’s not even close enough to what I experience.

I have been chasing around by my own wife, which turned to be some kind of “thing”, and also there is a psycho person who just don’t die. I chopped him, shot him, spit him, curse him, this guy JUST DO NOT DIE.

I mean this is hell! Beside all of the thrills I get, I also have to solve puzzles, but I promise to finish this until the end, and I only able to do it, like for 30 minutes or so.

The good thing is it has the beautiful song ever and it rings into your ear every time.

You know it’s just like some of the ghost story. If you heard a voice which seems near from you, it means the ghost is far away from you, but then you heard again the voice is fading away, then it has only one meaning, it sits ………………………. next to you.

In this game, you will never gonna get those signs, they will come to you, attacking you in silent, but the funny thing is that this game is combination of Exploration, a puzzle type of game to get out of Baker’s Family house, and Action-Thriller which lets you equipped with weapon ranges from knife to flamethrower.

I will uploaded this game in Part every Week. So CLICK the sign and subscribe for more. Thanks and BE SCARE!!!

Why Gamers Die Young?

I must admit the title is a bit provocative and can be misinterpreted at some time, but it’s just the way I could raise an awareness among gamers, parents, and our friends.

Some people die naturally, some dies because of accidents and things happened outside of their control, but some dies because of their ignorance. Ignorance is the worst enemy of life.

habit

This List will keep going until people aware of it and stop the habit.

  • Rustam died after playing Defense of the Ancients for 3 weeks nonstop.
  • Brian Vigneault died after playing War of Tanks for nearly 24 hours.
  • Hsieh died from cardiac arrest after playing 3 days nonstop.
  • Chuang died after playing Diablo 3 for 40 hours marathon.
  • Chris participated in 12-hours long X-Box game and died.
  • Lee Seung Seop playing Starcraft for 50 hours and died.

Those people died not because of games they play. They died because they did not know the line between “it’s enough” and “let’s keep going”. It’s not their mistakes, it’s nobody’s mistakes. It’s just because they didn’t know that it would bring death to them.

Is Playing Game for hours, an addiction or a habit? At some point, it doesn’t matter. But of course it’s the habit that we should stop and not ignoring it. Habit is something that you do without you even need to “raise a sign” of it. It’s automatically, it’s predictable, it’s consistent. {click to tweet} Put that in the same basket and name it Games, Drugs, Love, or anything, it will not change. It’s still something that you do with or without your awareness of it.

What are Gamer’s Habit that you need to be aware of ?

  1. The first thing they do in the morning is open the game platform. It’s the first thing you have in mind when you wake up in the morning.
    time

    It become priority to you. A habit that state deep in your heart that “you have to play games, before you do other activities”. You need to aware of that you will ignore your important activities for a day, and keep playing for hours. It’s your comfort zone, so “No one takes me nowhere at this point”. By ignoring your important responsibilities, it will always takes an effect in some moments of your life. You will run out of time to change something you ignore. Time is precious, you will not fly back to the past.

  2. Sit for hours. Your body is designed for regular movements.

    If you do not change your hours sitting habit, it will lead you to heart attack, diabetes, colon cancer, brain damage, digestion problem, posture problem, muscle degeneration, leg disorders. Google for experts’ articles out there about these terms. These … will get you if you don’t change. Your blood circulation in your body was not supposed to be pressed in a long time. Gamers always focus on achievements in the game, while they should focus on their body. They will not able to play any games in unhealthy body. Even, if you go for a fitness for 1 – 2 hours, but if you sit the whole day, it will not gonna works for you also. It’s still risky for your body. You need to move around a bit, refresh, and continue gaming after that.

  3. A bad habit always followed by other bad habits.
    snacks

    I am talking about your eating habit, snacks, smokes, drinks while you sit and gaming whole day. Gaming is not easy activities. Your body, your heart even moves a long with the thrills, the challenges, and the achievements in games. I remember a day when I’m in deep stress and my heart beats faster when I play Nioh. I am feeling very tired afterwards, then I draw a line and that line is “ENOUGH!”. But people are awesome, instead of enough, they say “One more time”. This “One more time” continue to 4 hours later. To ease up the tension, making you bit relax, you run on cigars, snacks, soda that will lead to more illness later, and when you realize that it’s not worth, you will lose your time to undo your actions.

Of course playing games always has its positive sides. It gives you satisfaction, happiness, confidence when finishing a hard game. It can increase your way of solving problems. That’s what I said when I said that the games does not affect gamers, it’s the gamers who affect their life.

Playing games also not a way to waste time also. It just need you to manage yourself to play games. You need to approach games as any other important things that matter in your life. Make a schedule with it and stay healthy in your life.

Doing Fitness or ask for help regarding your health earlier, perform medical check up is great things to do before things escalated. Check this suggestion out!

I was planning to make a couple run on a game, when a message came up and makes me excited if there’s another fan of my gameplay. A PS 4 player namely, Berenicucuddly, geez so hard spelling the name. Never know it’s a he or she, I just bluntly saying hello nicely.

I started to see his/her modus operandi. Starting to ask about my age, to see if I’m underage or old enough to be the market target. And then talking about the “OVERWATCH”, a famous game that gain a lot of fans, a game that every gamer knows and get excited to play. He/she get my emotional right at this point.

I give some comment about living a good life, and not messing up with his/her life (assuming this dude is at his/her 20s). Then, the marketing tactics begin with a small idea of fun. What fun anyway that could distract me from my routine gaming schedule???

So, i was about to give him the rating he wants and just close the web, well my planning after this is gonna give him an introduction to my YT gameplay and stuffs.

But it failed me with what h/s said later …

I have been in a scam scenarios before, the last is when binary option is at its peak, I come to a website and just sign a membership with my credit card and it almost cost me a fortune.

Free Porn private show?? Well, I must say that’s really a great offer, but it’s a worst distraction against gamer. {click to tweet} It’s just doesn’t make sense to do it right now, when I need to play a game.

Gamer Vs Clubber, If It’s as Simple as It Is!!

Recently I play World of Warcraft when a friend of mine barged in to my room and telling me that Its Friday night and wants me to come with him to a club in Jakarta, namely “Illigals”. Well, I said “It’s illegal to ask me to go when I’m in the middle of the game”, and he laughed.

wow

It’s been 1 year playing this game, not a very fan of it but still its fun to play especially when you know what to do in World of Warcraft. It’s one of the best MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing) games which was released by Blizzard Entertainment in 2004.

World Of Worldcraft

The fascinating about World of Warcraft is that it has a very massive maps with additional expansion which makes it a very vast world to explore. It consumes time and dedication to play this kind of game, matching with other players and get to know them is fun also in finishing difficult quests and brag on Titles and Achievements is a climax. Some people said, you do not know MMORPG if you have not played World of Warcraft. {click to tweet}

Another MMORPG game I play also is Wartune, a real-time MMORPG which featuring Sylphs, Eudaemon, and Mounts to defeat your enemies. Still have an account there, but has been vacuum for months.

I try to explain what games are these to my happyfeet clubber’s friend, and he is not even listening. He said,”Sitting here and staring at laptop will not get you anywhere!” I said rightaway “exactly! so please just leave!”

My friend is a flirty guy, that play a “game” in totally different level which he may has already “kill the nightmare bosses” in the game, if you know what i mean.

At the end of his wits, he said “Lets go to Blowfish then!”. Well, it blows my mind that he is not giving up.

One of my friend, back then told me that he is not into a mobile game and can’t push himself to like a game as I do. We play billiards together back then, he loves it. Then he was introduced to a billiard/pool mobile game, since then he always play that specific game. So I think that I don’t have to push myself to explain what game is to a clubber, well, he is a “player” anyway. Sooner or later he’ll try the games and let’s see if he’s still in the clubs every Friday.

But thinking about his invitation, i think i will go clubbing tomorrow night. Maybe I will find one of this WoW’s character there.

Have you ever been dragged out of your comfort chair to go outside and leave your game events forcefully?

A Game Console Where the Interest Begins!!

PlayStation 4 is the first game console I purchased a year ago. It’s a new thing for me while everyone else already play it for years. I was in a denial of game console, I said I will not play it, just because I don’t like it. Well, I guess I’m wrong in this matter.

I don’t like game console because I have played Nintendo in my early years, and it sucks, without knowing how game industry has been growing fast to these days. PS 4  is pretty much awesome, but as every game in the world, it consume time, if not, wasting time, but playing it every week will not get you into trouble I guess.

It’s a lot of to offer in PS 4 games, but I don’t look on X-Box  or any other game console yet, so probably It’s only my assumption. Without purchasing any games, you could already have enough free games to play in PS 4, especially when you apply for PS Plus Membership that pretty much cheap.

PS 4 games like FIFA 2017 or the latest FIFA 2018 has been a great opportunity to even makes money of it.

Fifa18---468x60

But even if you play a free games in PS 4, it will always comes in with in-game purchases. A free game, called Warframe, is selling their items freely, even coordinate with Twitch to get players having “free” items if they sign up for membership on Twitch which pretty much indirectly not free anymore.

We all have reasons why we play games, but most of them are the challenges in the game. We love challenges, games satisfy the needs. We are a gamer, not because we don’t have a life, but because we choose to have many. {click to tweet}

What gamer’s life is? Well, you sleep at nights, get up in the mornings, and play a game, or you play games at nights and wakes up late in the morning. It’s basically the same as any other things we do. It’s just a matter of priorities.

Trophy is great because it’s a measurable achievements on games’ challenges. It’s the same as a woman accepting your love, or an employer accepting you as their employee. The feeling is the same. And when you can’t complete a challenge, well some of us will just throw the console out, probably. Some people just quit and do it again next time.

Gamer’s for life? Then we are talking about Great Names behind that, PewDiePie, Clinton “Fear” Loomis, Peter “ppd” Dager, Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling, which some of them you never know. Making money from gaming is great, because you can enjoy thing you like and you still get money from it. So it’s an ideal idea, but not for everybody. Not all gamers doing great, some of them even doing a Live event and asking people who are watching them plays, to contribute money to them, asking for donation in other words.

As many gamers would do, I also do reviews on Games that I play on PS 4 also Games that will be coming soon. As much as I can, I do love to explore new games. But well, in the end, game is not our life, it’s just part of our life when we need a time to relax from our working life, at least for people who working not as gamers’ worker.

I would appreciate your opinion about this matter, so that we can learn from each other better to live this life abundantly!
