Why Create Mobile Games?
With more and more people flocking to mobile – and many even using their phones as their main computing device – the reach of this platform has grown exponentially. Even now, forecasts predict hundreds of thousands more mobile game players each year – and rising salaries to match this demand.
This is reflected in the market as a whole, with mobile games bringing in billions of dollars each year and accounting for over half of all gaming revenue. With growth continuing to increase, developers for mobile games are more in-demand than ever, and indie developers are experiencing great success.
