What I did

I finally released the free iOS version of Follow the Line 2D Deluxe. I also started the iOS marketing campaign for the free version.

How did the apps performed

Follow the Line 2D Deluxe performed very well. The iOS version is still far beyond the android version, but I think that is because I am still learning how the market works.

And here are the numbers:

What I did

I worked on the free iOS version of Follow the Line 2D Deluxe. There are some issues that I need to resolve before I am able to release it, but the most work is finished. I also worked on my new game.

How did the apps performed

Follow the Line 2D Deluxe performed very well. There was a drop in the downloads in the mid January, but they increased again towards the end of the month.

Follow the Line 2D Deluxe makes the most of the money, so I changed the stats to show more details of it and just the sum of the rest.

Conclusion

I am pretty pleased with the results and I am very excited about the new release and marketing campaign that I planned for this month.

Jan 062015
 

What I did

This was an exciting month. My new game Follow the Line 2D Deluxe performed very well, especially in the holidays. Most of the time I was busy making some small updates and fixes. I also released the iOS paid version of the game. It was important for me to release the game in the app store before the holidays.

I also started working on a new game.

How did the apps performed

Most of my older apps performed very bad. Even 3D Zombie Ant Smasher Ball performed bad. The biggest surprise on the other hand was one of my oldest games – Moon Racer. The downloads increased dramatically and the profit was the highest for the game ever!

My new game performed also very very good. So far this is by far my best performing game ever. I got all my marketing and assets investments back and even made a profit.

And here are the numbers:

Most of the Sells income is also from Follow the Line 2D Deluxe. I sold over 100 copies of the iOS version of the game! And this was without any iOS marketing! I thing that some of the android publicity had impact on the app store, because the most sells there are also from Germany.

What is it to come

The iOS free version of Follow the Line 2D Deluxe is ready. Before the release I want to gather some more money and prepare a good marketing campaign. The plan is to release it sometime in February.

I will also continue working on my new game.

Conclusion

It’s getting more and more exciting! Now I am more motivated than ever to continue and see how far I can get…

What I did

I received some more advertising ID policy violation warnings from google for some of my older apps. I updated some of them, but for some it wasn’t worth it, so I unpublished them. One of this apps was the free version of my very first android app Tetricorn. I was a little bit sad about it, but it was time to let go. Lately Tetricorn made less than a dollar a month…

I finally released my new game Follow the Line 2D Deluxe for android. I was very exited about this release, because this was the first time I planned a real marketing campaign. This is also my most polished game. I tried to make everything perfect and also hired some professionals for some of the assets.

How did the apps performed

I am pretty satisfied with the results. My new game looks great and the marketing campaign was worth it for sure. The game is still in its first 30 days on the market and it made it in the top 10 in some of the Top New sections on google play. On some days I got more than 2k organic downloads a day! I can say for sure that this is my most successful game yet. I only hope that after the first 30 days the downloads won’t drop drastically!

Most of the Sells income is also from Follow the Line 2D Deluxe. I sold 27 copies on the play store!

What is it to come

I am working on the iOS version of my new game Follow the Line 2D Deluxe. I hope to be able to release the paid version before Christmas. For the free version I will need some more time, because I want to prepare a good marketing campaign.

Conclusion

My expectations have been met, so I am happy and I believe that it is still very possible to be successful as a mobile indie developer.
