Mobile Game Development Agency
The State of the Mobile Games Market
With record-breaking download and consumer spending rates across the app stores, mobile gaming was already in a league of its own by the year 2020. But the next two years raised the bar for engagement and the growth of mobile gaming is not showing any signs of slowing, even as the pandemic that was largely responsible for the huge growth in that time period recedes.
As a mobile game development agency, even we still marvel at some of the statistics. The top-level statistics from the industry’s State of Mobile Gaming 2022 report are extensive, but the following really stand out:
Global consumer spend on mobile games rose by $30.2 billion (+35%) from 2019 to 2021 to reach $116 billion
Global mobile game downloads increased by 14.9 billion (+22%) from 2019 to 2021 to hit 82.98 billion
174 mobile games generated more than $100 million in 2021 – up from 141 in 2019
Another interesting – and lucrative development in the world of mobile gaming that we, as a mobile game development agency, find particularly exciting is GaaS model’s expansion into the mobile gaming space, and its utilization by businesses who have never even considered entering into the game space before.
GaaS, or “games as a service,” refers to how games are developed, delivered, and maintained in addition to how they are played. Gamers can stream games on their devices on demand thanks to GaaS. A subscription usually is required to access the games, providing a steady stream of revenue that is ongoing and not dependent on a single, one-time purchase.
The actual game software is kept on the servers of the hosting firm and is transmitted through video codec directly to the player’s device. As a result, the conventional game distribution model is drastically altered.
Mobile Game Technologies
As a mobile game development agency capable of serving a wide range of needs, our team is well-versed in the variety of mobile game technologies dominating the mobile game market right now. Those considering adding a mobile game to their marketing plans, or trying to turn their great game idea into a fully functional reality, are often not aware that there are options when it comes to mobile game development technology, or even what those are:
As a team and a mobile game development agency, we’ve invested countless person-hours in mastering the complexities of Unity because it has established itself as the most frequently used game engine among mobile game developers. It is easier to prototype and publish ideas to various hardware platforms because of its user-friendly interface and compatibility with the many art asset formats.
Unity has established itself as the industry standard engine thanks to its integrated physics engine, strong scene editor, and unified structure. Pearl Lemon Games can create amazing and engaging mobile games with Unity across a huge range of niches. You can make your game ideas come to life in 2D or 3D by collaborating with our team and basing it in Unity will help ensure that it is as playable a year down the line as it is at launch.
The main benefit of HTML5 for developers is its cross-platform support. As your mobile game development agency We can design games that adjust to different needs, including screen sizes, aspect ratios, and resolutions.
Games made with HTML5 can be played in all the most utilized web browsers as well as on various mobile platforms including iOS and Android and Windows based platforms. Some of the most successful mobile games in the world right now – including the behemoth that is Fortnite – make great use of this cross-platform ability and we can help ensure that your mobile game can too.
iOS Game Center and Google Play
There are connections available to many APIs on each app store platform. As a result, users will be able to check real-time information from a variety of sources through operating system level apps.
This accessibility and other features offered by Apple and Google Play are crucial to a multiplayer game’s success, whether it be live updates to scores on a leaderboard or even tracking changes to account information across devices and screens.
Unlike some mobile game development agencies, Pearl Lemon Games is experienced in both iOS and Android game development, and not only will we ensure that your mobile game functions seamlessly across both platforms, but we can also help you with the submission, app support, and management processes that will get your games accepted to these platforms.
This is an area where many mobile game developers hit a wall, especially when it comes to the stricter requirements of the iOS Game Center and the Apple App Store in general. As a mobile game development agency, we, however, have a stellar track record when it comes to succeeding in getting past these potential roadblocks to a mobile game’s success.
Skilled Art and Animation Teams
Our own staff of artists, 3D modelers, and animators are pros at using tools that are accepted as industry standard in the mobile game business. Our team is adept at modeling and animating characters in Maya and Blender, producing classic 2D concept art written in Adobe, and developing UI/UX designs using Autodesk technologies.
We are happy – and keen – to put our skills to work for you, and you can be assured that the project will be a success because we have years of combined experience working on high-quality animated features and mobile gaming projects for our clients.
