Earnings and Statistics from my 4th Android Game

Hello, it's time for statistics and earnings from my 4th Android/WebGL Game, "Mirkowanie" is idle clicker, it's mostly a special game, because it was made for Polish website community (but not only players from Poland play it), it's specific, so I was not looking into a lot of players + earnings (Poland got very low earnings from ads) I'm just 19 year old newbie, I couldn't sleep, I had weak up at 3-4AM and I started to develop "Mirkowanie". It was fun to develop it ;p Just a lot of work in analyzing data (imagine checking website data from 2005-2018 year). Here are statistics:

Game got downloaded 3451x (19x Amazon Store and 3432x Google Play), Amazon Store is that low, because downloads was mostly from Poland. Game got 26k game plays (online). Top download (one day) was 1900x times, I got 500x testers in one day.

Earnings?

$36.82 (Unity Ads, video ads, can't withdraw it).

$29.62 (Kongregate, we got payed from game plays, can withdraw it ).

$17.56 Chartboost (ads that are shown in-game, sometimes video ads (if Unity ads fail), can't withdraw it ).

So my pure "earning" is $29.62 (can withdraw it). So was not worth it, but that's not problem, my games also don't got IAPs + most of the players was from Poland (low cash from ads), but it was still fun to develop it, I mean it was crazy idea ;p

I mean from one side I got 1900x downloads in one day, it's big number from me, but to be honest, for gamedev business it's nothing, but wait, for me it's still 1900x players (my first game got 600x Downloads in ~1 year). Also, fun fact, I was top1 new Free casual game in Poland. Also, ~25% downloads comes from Xiaomi devices.

So in last week i got 14.3k sessions, max time spend in-game (one day, max, total ) was 13.85M seconds (~160 days). It's 80 minutes for each user, average 2.5 session per user.

 

Some other stats:

Love the attitude that you're enjoying breaking new ground with new record players, even if the earnings aren't as much as you might have liked. 

Also very cool that you're willing to put all your data out there for everyone to see. :)

Thank you :-}

Maybe one day I will get more players (I had never reached 5k+ in Google Play), which is a very bad, IK it won't change anything in earnings, but I just want reach 5k+ downloads with one game (Google Play), not sure why, but I just want it, because I had never got 5k+ downloads, so I want them :P

I'm excited about my new game (still a lot of work, but I think its like 50%+ done, it was dropped but now I'm back into it). Gonna try some new marketing plans, just worried how many downloads I can get with it, I think I will fail, but it's interesting still.

I'm sure you'll get there with one of your future games.

How are you marketing? If you make a post in the business forum explaining how you've been marketing and asking for tips, maybe we could help improve your process or point out some options you might be missing. :)

Heads up! 
Don't set yourself with doubt at only 50%. Maybe get some family/friend support to look at a it and give you ideas/inspiration.
You got this! Keep it going and it will turn out awesome!

Nice idea, I had studied my 4 games fails, and with my 5th game I got some plans to improve. I always start with something like that:

1. When I'm making game, from time to time I post info about it on Twitter/Facebok (gif/video) + on Wykop (Polish websites like Reddit).

2. When I'm near finishing game, I start beta tests, sometimes I got with alpha, depends on game, but on beta test I search beta testers from Poland (Wykop Website) + Reddit + Facebook/Twitter.

3. Collect feedback, develop updates based on feedback. Etc.

4. When releasing game I try to do good ASO + bring high rates + I'm writing to a lot of youtubers/websites (with my past games I even got some reviews), so let's say I can get 500-1500 downloads in first day, but then all fail. No idea how to get more players, I mean from time to time I develop updates + post info about them, I release game statistics. My new plan is similar to this one, but better, no idea how it will work. Right now main problem is that, I can generate downloads, but it's 1-3 day MAX (but with some games I got 15-40 downloads per day for ~1-3 weeks, still not enough).

I think one day I will make a post, why my all games failed + what I did wrong.

I think that friends/family may not be honest with opinions (they will always try to look at game, as a better game). Mostly people that I know in real life, thinks making games is super easy + it's some activity for children. When I'm telling people, that I develop games as mine hobby, they think I'm developing some games like GTA/Witcher.

Oh, also, nice post:

https://mcgivernjacob.wixsite.com/jacobmcgivern/blog/how-waking-up-at-5-30am-changed-my-life

It reminds me, in old times, when I was waking up at 4:30 and going to sleep at 22:30 (to develop games, before I was going to school). Shame latter I had constantly stayed at night (developing games) + I had given up with waking up at 4:30AM (it was also hard to stop developing games at that time, let's say I got school at 8:00AM, but I got some problem to fix, and it was just hard to leave it ;p). I agree, that it's also nice to have a plan, when I'm developing games (before sleep) I'm always writing a list for a next day (what to program next day + what to take care of).

First off, I'm honored that you viewed my blog/website. Probably my first viewer on that! 

Secondly, If you can't get friends/family... visit the gamedev discord and post it there. I feel there are more people besides me who would be willing to be a game tester (for free). Build a community around yourself and your game (once you can get some screenshots/gameplay/trailer/.... ect. Maybe start a dev blog! I'm not sure where you are in your game exactly, but i'd be willing to follow/retweet developer blogs and updates.

I'm just beginning to learn to gavedev (started Unity today), so I know its going to be a challenge to market and get your game out.

      Aura enemies – ”Heeble” is a spider-like creature that is closely related to the Creeble, Greeble and Beeble and it can crawl across any type of block. The ice-webs this one spins causes a lingering damage so stay clear and burn those webs from afar.

      My project started in 2014 but recently ended due to no funds.  AltarisNine was a Minecraft project based on RPG. The concept was nine islands that you explore at a time to follow an in depth lore based on our own production team. This is where the 'Nine' comes in. With skepticism of future success we hope to make this tale into chapters. Such as the first one introducing Nine islands at time.
      It wasn't always the same though, my world did evolve over time and now I have a better idea of what it is better than ever. In the first island, Main Isle, is themed around jungles and wilderness. There's lore that stretches throughout the chapter which will engage the player. There would also be kinds of characters you can be such as any other RPG which could be talked about (because i'm still  about what I have lol)
      My former team was designing a world players would get into interact with in various ways. Boss battles would be minigames and the RPG lore would be engaged in and something indie platforms would enjoy and talk about beyond platforms.
      In the minecraft varient I was a builder, the leader, and the story director which everyone respected. I led my own team of builders and story writers. While I chose certain individuals to be the head department of development and art design.
      The reason I am here is to find a new team to help take this away from minecraft and hope we can be successful about it. I'll happily commute each and every person that volunteers and will be accommodated down the line with promotions, wages, and definitely praised for helping start my dream up.

      Here are some questions that were frequently asked and that I can thoroughly answer:
      What is the goal of the game? If you've ever heard of Wizard101. I got inspired by that game a little. I like the concept of making yourself in this world of mystery and impressing people with new mechanics and events that they enjoy. I'd like for the game to be successful and be mostly on PC but if this keeps up we could reach out to other consoles. But for now, PC, one platform at a time lol. My goal personally is to give people the entertainment and enjoyment I think they'll deserve. Something thats not cheesy, not cliche, something new to keep evolving the gaming community Is this in first-person or third-person? This will be a third person game. We can play around with the camera angles but I kind of want it from a aerial pov I saw RPG in the post so can I assume that the game will have generic RPG elements, e.g. quests, npcs, story-line, items? Yes this will have generic RPG elements. But with a few surprises that make the game different. Such as making boss fights some type of minigame. I don't know how the audience will like or even if it'll flow with game play. But I'd still like to take the idea on for now. Will there be combats, e.g. vs. monsters, vs. players(?) ? There will be tons of concepts. As i've said before the 'Nine' comes in the Nine isles of this world we haven't named yet lol. Each nine islands we come up with will not only give players plenty of content to play, but something we break up into story chapters. Each island will have its on set monsters tied to the story or even monsters that are just natural in their environment. There will also be a PvP aspect which can't be brought up too much because its difficult to try to come up with a player style culture that isn't too predictable or generic or even cliche. I was wondering if it should be an initiated fight or a head on duel like world of warcraft. Is this a single player game or a multiplayer one? Definitely multiplayer. Will the game look like Minecraft? like a voxel/blocks game? I imagined it not looking like minecraft but maybe that can be a concept of its own down the line (like an island concept). I was thinking along the lines of a 3D style and not like minecraft. What are the core mechanics to be included, e.g. player movement, enemy movement, enemy AI? This question is more technical but there will be interactive things in the world, things to collect, natural occurring crafting supplies to make new loot and weapons with. There will be NPC's and thats a broad topic enough lol. I'd even a imagine a pet, housing, and gardening system. But thats for accessories in coding and to give more content in the game for later polishing. Is there a storyline already made? There is an indirect storyline. We've made a script for voice actors (and just what to make the NPC's say in general) in A9 v1. Are there goals already planned out? There are many goals to set out. One each at a time for separate upcoming departments The first 8 pictures were of our hub, the other 9 was our factions world. The factions world doesn't retain to this project I wanted you to see how dedicated I was to making this project. I built everything in the hub myself except for the giant pagodas. The last two photos were all the ones I could find of the RPG world

      Hi, I'm currently working on this game by myself and was wondering if anyone wanted to help I'm looking for programmers, illustrators, pixel artists, sound designers and developers. I'm a young teen and I prefer to program, I have a basic idea for the game but need help creating it and giving it some more uniqueness. Basically the game is a 2D, could be 3D if someone can teach me how to code games in 3D, and a large world adventure game were you have to fight monsters to level up and collect increasingly powerful items . There is also going to be a mysterious part of the game where you have to find certain artefacts and decode messages to get the best gear. I really hope people are interested please join my discord server: https://discord.gg/c5Ce9Q4 or contact me via email; theagamer39@hotmail.com if you want to help. Hope you have a nice day!

      In PixelCast 7, Jeremy hangs out at Pixels = Pints + Bytes for the latest PixelFest Devs meetup and chats with two local indies about their studios. Joshua Jané demos 'Bouncy Bear' and explains what makes 'Just Bare Games' tick, including the fact that all their games contain bears! Meanwhile, Joseph Musso of Sunset Studios let's us in on the game he's been pondering for 10 years ('Santa's Sleigh Ride Sacrilegious Arcade Action'... say it three times fast), which is now playable after coming out to a PixelFest Devs meetup back in August.
