Rayark Games is at the forefront of creating a whole new universe. The universe is one that is not only being created for gamers, but all who enjoy the art of good storytelling, fine art and are willing to expand their minds venturing into what could be. One way to describe Rayark Games is a Taiwanese company that is a multimedia juggernaut.
Over the past few of years, China has been labeled as the ‘Big Thing’ when it comes to the mobile game market. Of course this is mainly due to the sheer population size China has going for it, but also because everyone there loves mobile games and love to spend money on them.
Android developers will have a new option for their applications and games starting next year that will add an official ‘Ads’ tag to their products on Google Play. This was originally announced back during Google I/O where games and apps in the Designed for Families program have had an “Ad-Supported” tag in their listings. Now Google is ready to expand this to all Google Play games and applications.
Android developers within certain countries now have the option to set the price of their apps and in-game purchases to a lower amount than before. This new change is now available within the following countries: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Hungary, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Phillippines, Poland, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam.
Back in the first half of October, one of the Daily Deals we had was a game development course bundle which was on sale. A lot of people were interested in that bundle, especially since it offered a lot of focus on using Unity3D which is great for cross-platform game development and is one of the more popular game engines to use when making games. Well that deal is back for those of you who missed it last time.
Up until today anyone who publishes an Android game or application onto Google Play had a limit as to how high of a price they could charge. If you’ve been using Android since it was released, you may remember a long time ago a few applications popping up that were ridiculously priced, ranging from $99-$200. We’re not sure what happened to those but we do know the average pricing of apps and games on Google Play is between $0-$5, with a decent amount being $5+ but rarely over $10. Square Enix, of course, is one of those exceptions to the rule, with games regularly priced at $10-$15.
Wargaming.net has announced today that they have opened up a new division of their company that will focus solely on the mobile gaming market. Officially called WG Cells, this arm of Wargaming.net will focus on development and publishing regarding all things relating to mobile and Wargaming.net.
It is time for another DroidGamers Daily Deal and this time it is a full Android Game Development Bundle, so the entire bundle is focused on creating Android games, be it simple puzzle games or full high-end 3D titles across all genres. There is even a hands-on course where you will be making games as you learn how to code them.
Today’s DroidGamers Daily Deal is an entire bundle of courses that will teach anyone interested in making games how to do exactly that. This is a bundle of courses, all of which are the hands-on type of learning. So you will be learning how to code by actually making games within Unity3D.
