Publishing to CodeCanyon or Mobile Which One?

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Wed Sep 17, 2014 11:58 am

Hello Everyone,

I just started learning Construct 2 and created a game with it. I just don't know where to upload it. I was planning to publish on ios and android market but after reading the reviews just found out that it doesn't look as easy to get listed and from the rumors I see the ad incomes are not as high as before. So actually I am planning to sell it on Codecanyon. Do you think it would be a better businessplan to sell on Codecanyon or would I miss the train by not publishing to appstore and google play.

I would appreciate any advice since I feel like I am in open water right now. :)

Best Regards

Volkan Kutlubay

Depends on the quality, and how many you sell.
Have to think about all the licenses. You need to make sure its non exclusive, and a license from Scirra would be a good idea as well.....

Which is what's ruining the market...

Why not try the Scirra Store? You get to profit and give back to the community.

Codecanyon is not the best place but it is a good place to start and test the market.
I created a game for a contest and publish it there. So far I the game has sold 17 copies.

For 2015 my goal is to add more simple games to Codecanyon and more complex games I will sell exclusive and non-exclusive licenses directly to game publishers like Spil games.

There is a good post here showing the kind of impressions and clicks you need to make decent money from ads.

http://appstoreninja.com/my-app-revenue-18-may-2014/ and also a post on the best ad networks http://appstoreninja.com/mobile-ad-networks-pay/

My own experience with iAds on iOS, is you earn about $1 to $1.50 per thousand impressions. (eCPM)

If you make a really addictive game, you never know... but the competition is massive in the stores.
