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.

      Hey my dudes,
      Me and 4 friends are third year compsci students. Three of us are pretty good at drawing. We are hoping to make a 2d roguelite game with unity during the next few months. We are still brainstorming. At the moment, my idea is to create a card roguelite game:
      First, you would need to choose 2 heroes to enter the dungeon with the goal of finding a treasure. The treasure found gives you extra bonus in later runs. You can choose between mage, gunner, rogue, paladin, warrior and fighter. Each hero has their own unique cards. And there are common cards that every heroes can get(like hearthstone).
      The progression system would be like slay the spire’s. You can choose your own path, but every paths leads to the boss. It would use procedural generation. After defeating an enemy, you get to choose a new card out of the three options. There would be shops, random events, elite enemies, etc
      The combat system is where i need some suggestions on. There would be two piles of deck. One for each hero. I can think of two good combat systems:
      1. Before every enemy encounters, you can choose what cards to use from your deck. Cards not used would not get discarded. Cards are drawn from the deck only if they break or due to special card’s effect. Every card have a durability number. Ones the durability reach zero, the card would break and can no longer be used. Events/enemies can modify the durability of the cards.
      2. Card not used this turn would get discarded. Once the deck is empty, the discard pile gets shuffled and copied to the deck. Card/item effects can increase the number of cards you draw.
      How can I make the game more interesting? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hello, I'm currently searching for a talented and passionate programmer to create a small but great horror game that would take around 3 months to be done.
       
      About the game: The game would be a sci-fi/post-apocalyptic survival horror 3D game with FPS (First person shooter) mechanics and an original setting and story based in a book (which I'm writing) scene, where a group of prisoners are left behind in an abandoned underground facility. It would play similar to Dead Space combined with Penumbra and SCP: Secret Laboratory, with the option of playing solo or multiplayer.
       
      Engine that'd be used to create the game: Unity
       
      About me: I'm a music composer with 4 years of experience and I'm fairly new in this game development world, and I'm currently leading the team that'd be creating this beautiful and horrifying game. I decided that making the book which I'm writing into a game would be really cool, and I got more motivated about doing so some time ago when I got a bunch of expensive Unity assets for a very low price. However, I researched about how to do things right in game development so I reduced the scope of it as much as I could so that's why this game is really based in a scene of the book and not the entire thing (and also that's why it would take 3 months). Also I'm currently learning how to use Unity and how to model things with Blender.
       
      Our team right now consists of: Me (Game Designer, Creator, Music Composer, Writer), 3 3D Modelers, 1 Sound Effect Designer, 1 Concept Artist and 1 Programmer.
       
      Who am I looking for:
      - A programmer that's experienced in C# and with Unity.
       
      Right now the game is very early in its development (GDD is completed and all 3D Items, Music and Sound Effects are completed).
       
      If you are interested in joining, contributing or have questions about the project then let's talk. You can message me in Discord: world_creator#9524

      Hello, 
      So, I'm aware this may be a broad question with a vast variety in the anwser. However, I am a game design student that works professionally for a large engineering company conducting software configuration. Naturally, I'm curious about the path ahead and I'm desperately gathering information on the overall process of developement with Unity. Are there professional resources available that can outline the processes and functions of the engine, and what can be used to interact with it? I'm looking for options other than the official documentation. I have already jumped into that. Thanks!

      I've been making music for about 7 years, I have hundreds of releases on soundcloud and bandcamp. Recently I have stepped up my post production game, pouring long hours into EQ and mixing. Most of my music is in a moody, "foggy" piano style with heavy experimentation through pitch shifting, overdubbing, and live recording. I use a spectrogram EQ to manually shape sounds and scoop out noise in Audacity. I am familiar with many general concepts, applying compression, reverb, high and low pass filters, and pretty much all of the effects in Audacity and many of the pitfalls and lessons of live recording for guitar and piano in my home studio. I am familiar with some other programs like ableton and fruity loops but live recording is my strong suit as opposed to composing music in a DAW. I rely heavily on improvisation, recording large amounts of audio and cutting it down and manipulating it in post as well as doing overdubs. I can put out a project of piano music in a month or so up to what I think is a high / acceptable standard that I personally am happy with.

      I am heavily inspired by Akira Yamaoka's work on the Silent Hill series as well as Angelo Badalamenti. I dream of composing music for games or short films, and feel like I'm ready to take on a project like that, as well as being willing to license my already existing music out which I think would be a perfect fit for the right type of horror game or anything with emotional elements.

      I am currently working on another project that will be released in December or on New Years. I will work for a reasonable amount and have done this out of passion for 5+ years because I love doing it. I feel that I have improved enough now to pursue doing something like this.

      Thank you so much to anyone who even bothers to click any of these links, and thank you for your time!

      Other skills: I do all of my own cover art with digital photo editing and subsequently also have about 5 years of experience with that- photography and digital photo manipulation. I can work on marketing materials or art in this way. I play the Piano, Guitar, Synth / String piano etc, and I sing. I have close connections to some other musicians and visual artists. I will be honest if I don't think my music will work for your project or if I'm not sure if I can do something well enough, but I feel comfortable taking on some general audio design as well, including general sound / dialogue recording or noise reduction.
