Just looking at different options for additional game revenue. Annoying ads and videos are becoming more popular, then in-app purchases like upgrades, bonus levels etc.

Is anyone offering t-shirts or other merch?

Speaking as an occasionally-performing musician, the amount of revenue that comes from t-shirts and other merch is often grossly overstated, and the profits even more so. I think there's a decent amount of cash in such merch when you have a big enough brand to make people want to wear your stuff in public, and for economies of scale to make it cheap to produce. Otherwise, I'd suggest treading with caution.

 

(Also, moving to the Business forum.)


Done. (Hopefully)

Merch is a bit hit and miss I can see that, but small games often don't make that much from ads and in app purchases. But, loyal gamers might be interested in a shirt or cap or something unique. I deffo see your point with economies of scale.

Just wondering if anyone had any experience of trying this?

(Kylotan Thanks for moving the post)
