How much money did I make?
That's way more than I made my first year at Agora Studios!
(I worked on Plan of Attack all year for free)
...and it's almost as much as my first Christmas bonus at 1st Playable!
(My first year I was Lead Designer of Freddi Fish ABC's for Nintendo DS)
Let's take a look at that revenue.
How does it break down for each app?
Frustrating Tic Tac Toe (iPhone): $1930.96
Zombie Puncher: $732.31
Frustrating Tic Tac Toe (iPad): $195.28
Number Guesser Deluxe: $41.64
Frustrating Air Hockey: $34.27
As you can see, I make all my money from Frustrating Tic Tac Toe!
Let's take a look at revenue over time:
A year ago, I didn't even have any apps out!
Frustrating Tic Tac Toe launched at the end of August. You can then see how revenue exploded around Christmas, and any time I released a new app.
New apps appear in the New Release Queue, which (with no marketing budget) is my best way to reach new players, and refer them to my suite of older apps!
...but what's with the drop at the end?
July isn't over, so that last month is still adding up dollars for me as we speak.
That said, my revenue HAS dropped in the last month! It's because I haven't releasing anything new! Since March, I've released a few updates that have helped maintain revenue. For example, Frustrating Tic Tac Toe got iPad support (it's now a Universal Application that runs on both iPhone and iPad).
But what about this last month, not maintaining, no new updates?
THAT's because I'm working on something new :D
How many downloads did I get total?
How does this break down per app?
Frustrating Tic Tac Toe: 166,354
Zombie Puncher: 116,185
Number Guesser Deluxe: 9,277
Frustrating Air Hockey: 8,434
It's interesting to me that my downloads numbers are still as low as they are. 166,354 isn't bad, and I've made a good amount from Frustrating Tic Tac Toe alone, but imagine how many people are unaware that this app exists? Or how many people have yet to discover Zombie Puncher?
I look forward to seeing how my download and revenue numbers climb, now that I have a larger combined app suite, and can refer players to all of those apps.
Also, it will be very interesting to see Year 2:
- iAd in my apps?
- Apple's Game Center / Leaderboards
- Justin Bieber (is he still popular?)
Next year: the MOON!
