3 Factors That Will Make Your Game A Success.

What makes one video game successful and another less so? The answer isn’t always clear, especially when comparing games of similar genres that were released around the same time or by the same company. However, three key factors can predict whether or not your video game will be successful in its own right, even if you may share some traits with other games that failed in the market. Whether you’re an independent developer or working with a larger company, you can use these factors to help ensure that your game will live up to your expectations and those of your potential players.

1) Know Who Is Going To Play Your Game

When it comes to game development, one of your most important early questions should be: Who is going to play my game? Before starting to design or code, you need to know who will be playing your game. If you already have a large following on Twitter or Facebook, that’s great — you can design features that appeal directly to them. But if not, don’t panic! There are plenty of ways that any developer with a good idea can get their name out there. However, bear in mind that different gamers want different things — every gamer is unique and has different preferences when it comes to what they want from a game. To ensure maximum exposure for your game and make sure as many people as possible will want to play it, you need to consider who your target audience is first. Then make sure you cater towards them; consider their wants and needs and implement these into gameplay elements. With such targeted development, creating an appealing video game won’t be such an uphill struggle after all! Learn How To Talk To Potential Gamers: Most developers think about game development from a technical standpoint — but that’s only half of it. Once you have your beautiful product ready to go, it’s time to begin advertising! Marketing yourself as a game creator isn’t like selling luxury goods; marketing games are all about learning how to talk to potential players, showing off what your game has got, and getting gamers excited about purchasing it — so that means learning how to speak in terms of excitement (rather than detached functionality). As well as speaking the language of gamers.

2) What Is The Competition In The Market

Before starting on any video game development project, it’s essential to understand how much competition there is in your target market. If you’re developing a unique product or concept, then your business will be able to stand out from others and stand out in a good way. If your product is very similar to what already exists though, then you need to work extra hard on marketing and promotion to get ahead of them. See if you can find at least 3 competitors that are in a similar field as yours; run some research on them (youtube reviews, google searches, etc). Write about why your game will still succeed where theirs have failed. Why do you think they failed? Use strong language — don’t use fluff words like I feel or I believe. You should know! You’re writing a professional piece here! What did they do wrong? Which parts were lacking? Why do YOU think your game will be successful despite their mistakes? Don’t shy away from controversy if there’s something obvious you don’t agree with about your competitor’s game. Discuss why YOUR GAME is going to give other games in its genre a run for their money!

What Are The Challenges And Opportunities For Your Video Game: Once you’ve looked into competitors, it’s time to dig deeper into the realm of video games and what types of challenges come with producing one successfully. As discussed in a previous point, many indie game developers have fallen through because they failed to take into account their market competition. How will YOU avoid making those same mistakes? To do so, you need to know what some of your biggest potential challenges will be as an independent developer (or better yet; why don’t I give you a challenge right now?) Because as an independent video game developer in today’s world, two main challenges need addressing from day 1 if you want your game to succeed: cost control and market viability.

3) How Are You Going To Promote And Market The Game

The single most important thing you need to ask yourself is: How are you going to promote and market your game? The answer is Every way possible. Plan on spending at least 10% of your budget on marketing alone, particularly in a crowded market. No matter how amazing or unique your game is, if nobody knows about it then nobody will play it. There’s no magic wand that makes people automatically notice and flock to your game — you have to tell them about it. And while advertising can certainly help get more eyes on it, there are plenty of other less-costly ways to spread word-of-mouth about your product (for example social media campaigns). Because no matter what platform you choose or what method(s) you use for promoting your game: It won’t matter if they don’t love playing it! So make sure your game is as close to perfect as possible before you release it — and never stop improving it afterward. Remember: A good game doesn’t just fall out of thin air. If you put enough time into planning, designing, developing, and testing; then it has a greater chance of being an even bigger success than one launched overnight!
