What’s New this month
This month our favourite publisher SayGames LLC revealed they surpassed the 2 Billion download mark!
Further more, they also announced their new SayHero programme, a $10 Million Dollar developer growth fund which is just an incredible opportunity.
The options now available to hyper casual gamedev’s in 2021 is super exciting and it’s only going to continue to get better and better with more hyper casual games publishers offering more and more incentives to publish with them.
Hyper Casual Trends
We made some observations early in February of the more realistic style racing games that are speeding up the charts, so we discussed the potential way to capitalise early on in this hyper casual games trend.
Releases from Voodoo, Coda Platform and Kwalee certainly indicate that this is pretty hot right now and let’s not forget Rush Hour 3D hitting number 1 at the end of last year.
It could be the time to take a punt and try your luck at waving something similar under one of the publishers noses at relatively low cost.
It was also very interesting to re-visit a game we first tried back in Academy Live 175, Agent Zero from Groo Gadgets.
This time the control system has changed and more content has been added, but was it for the better? Yes and No!
Whilst the team added more content and levels, the new controls seem to somehow lose the exciting flow of the game for us. That said, it’s still well worth checking out and we’re excited to see where it goes.
ABC runner from Joypac is crushing the charts and for good reason, it has a lot of charm and the gameplay changes up at a pretty much perfect pace.
Happy printer is not too dissimilar and we think this has potential to stick around for quite some time.
Our favourite however has to be Mad Dogs from Supersonic. With a total nod to the classic game “Inside” from Playdead it’s a super fun game.
Here’s our round up on what not to miss this month.
