Anatomy of a hit game: Monument Valley creators share downloads, sales and other data
Ustwo Games, the developer behind the hit Monument Valley, has just given some insight on how well the game is doing in the Google Play Store, Amazon Appstore and the iOS App Store. Monument Valley made our list as one of the best designed games of 2014, as well as Google’s list of 102 most popular games of 2014, and continues to stay on the charts as one of the top paid games in the Play Store.
If you can remember back a few weeks ago, Ustwo Games tweeted some disheartening piracy statistics regarding the Google Play Store, only to clarify the stats in a report released a few days later. Taking the piracy numbers into consideration, the statistics the developers talk about are apparent in the numbers shown below. Sales on iOS are miles ahead of the Google Play Store and Amazon Appstore, though the game was an iOS exclusive for months before coming to Android.
So, are you curious to see what exactly it takes to make it to some of the best game lists of the year? Check out the image below for some more information:
