Our Android Games' Revenues From Advertisement

by Thierry Brochart on 12/06/11 05:43:00 am   Featured Blogs

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.

 

Exactly 3 months ago we (a French indie game developer, 'Dream-Up') started to publish our games on the android market

Today we release the new numbers PLUS a graphic showing our income from advertisement, hoping it'll help our fellow indie game developers

In few days we will release 2 more games Ambush Zombie and eXtreme MotoCross. All of them were also developed with our DreamGame engine .

A month ago we had 47,937 downloads, but today we have 120,404 downloads! We've been impressed by the jump until last week, where the downloads just dropped. But if we look at all the other free apps on the android market ALL OF THEM (Angry B. alike) are showing a tremendous drop of their downloads. We suppose it is because of XMas being so close, people are too preoccupied to play? Or maybe people are waiting for XMas to buy/offer new Smartphones? If anyone has a clue I'd love to hear your opinion on this! :)

Anyway, so we said downloads are up, and here is a graphic to show our income from advertisement (income in US$, per week, from all our free apps with Ads):

Stay tuned for new numbers in January!
