HOW

Our Unique Approach to Building and Maintaining Successful Games

Being passionate gamers, every project we take up becomes an exercise in one-upping ourselves. From one castle to the next, we never stop until the princess has been rescued and perfection achieved. Likewise, when we take over an existing game, we look at it critically from every possible aspect and keep making incremental, data-driven improvements, never stopping till we take the game to the level it deserves to be at. Rest assured our thoughts fly as fast and as strategically as our fingers on controllers, looking for that masterstroke that can destroy evil warlords and establish us as supreme champions!

Pop culture is our forte, and no matter what your IP is, someone in our studio will undoubtedly raise his/her hand and rattle off the entire lore in no time. So rest assured when it comes to IPs, it will only take a few brainstorming sessions to arrive at the perfect concept. As for existing games, once again, irrespective of genre, you’ll find experts who, with their considerable experience of having played/designed/developed successful titles within that genre, take over and strategize all you need to know about going faster, higher and stronger. Broadly, our strategy phase consists of:

  • Researching target audiences and gaining thorough knowledge of what they’d want
  • Figuring out the game genre and type based on extensive research
  • Designing elements such as characters and level design, mechanics, story, virtual economy and more
  • Detailed game design document
  • Concept art and UI
  • Detailing meticulous user journeys that’ll hook and delight your players
  • Retention and monetization strategies
  • Detailing a roadmap that clearly explains scalability, evolving it constantly and getting players further invested

Our team of passionate game developers, who’ve been through stringent qualifying tests, ensure you never miss a deadline and our proprietary platforms and APIs facilitate accelerated development. Here’s what we do:

  • Follow an agile model with DevOps methodology.
  • End to End integration
  • Seamless UI/UX experience
  • Extensive testing
  • Build fast, release modules as PoCs, get feedback from test markets and iterate
  • Support and improve titles with new features, offers, content and more
  • Engage with players and create highly invested communities

Areas We "Play" In

IP gaming

Games ensure that your IP stays, not just relevant, but popular amongst the crowd for a long time. At the end of the day, a game is a way to generate additional revenue for your intellectual property. The best part? You don’t need to work quite as hard on the game as you did on your original matter, because it is being handled by a team of dedicated developers, who know exactly what to do to help increase your profits!

Gamification

Almost 60% of people who own a virtual assistant have used it to make a purchase through voice command. Early adopters of voice commerce who have redesigned their websites to support voice search capability will increase revenue by 30% by 2021

Enterprise Gaming

Enterprise Gaming can be used as a tool to communicate everything that the company is about, both internally and externally. It’s a great way of not only creating awareness but also paving the way towards loyalists who swear by your brand. You can also use gaming as a way to train your employees by gamifying various onboarding processes in organizations, up-skilling employees by getting them to acquire skills through games and a lot more.

FAQs

Everything you need to know to get your gaming initiative started

Yes, we develop games for both iOS and Android

At the moment, we only develop games for mobile

Our teams are proficient in Unity 3D and all games are developed on it. However, we specialize in browser-based games too

We leverage our expertise and keen interest in gaming and gamification to arrive at the best fit for your IP or idea. If it’s a gamification project, we carry out a similar exercise to determine what the target audience would find interesting and fun, and craft a strategy accordingly.

Our team of top-notch developers are skilled in Unity and are available for hire or for development in-house. We offer continuous, long-term QA support that focuses on delivering a stable, bug-free game which is also fun, well-designed, and internally consistent. Our QA expertise includes GUI testing, compatibility testing, regression testing, IAP testing, reliability testing, build acceptance testing, monkey testing, and much more

It can vary based on the complexity of the game and the art style chosen for it. Usually, cost depends upon the following factors:

  • Game type
  • Game complexity
  • Art style (2D/3D)
  • Animations required
  • Marketing and UA costs

Our feature-rich and scalable content management platform, Social Kinesis, ensures that you have the ability to update game content, tweak numbers and add new assets on the go. We also offer a powerful analytics and customer engagement platform called Upshot which gives you every actionable insight you need to make the right decisions.

As for cloud storage, while on-demand AWS instances can be expensive, you don’t have to necessarily pay for it. Here again, our proprietary IoT solution can take advantage of spot instances. Dynamically moving processes to spot whenever available with no impact on end users. This will enable you to bring down cloud expenses by as much as 80%

Being committed to the long term success of every game we develop, live-ops is one of our core competencies. We continuously experiment more and more with the data at our disposal and try to find correlations & tipping points to progressively drive the users towards the growth path we have in mind for them.

We monitor KPIs extremely closely and analyse data to get all the right answers. We then identify triggers and resolutions to improve them, roll them out quickly and keep iterating till we hit the targeted numbers. Additionally, we keep updating the games with new features, content and relevant events so they stay relevant and generate new digital lines of revenue.

Once the game is ready for launch, we craft a comprehensive social media marketing strategy that features teasers, developer interviews, game trailers and more. We also ensure your title and descriptions are optimised for app store searches so your game stands out in its category. We help publishers set up websites, blogs and other PR activities. Once launched, we aggressively focus on user acquisition to get quality players who drive great retention, revenue and viral marketing. We also specialize in integrating ads, retargeting, cross-promotion and more. Download the brochure above for an in-depth account.

Depending on the complexity of the game, the time could vary. Also to consider here is the fact that as a part of the development process, some companies follow recommended practices such as the delivery of PoC every few weeks and iterative enhancements on the way to ensure the delivery of a robust deliverable, which might extend the timeline, of course.

[x]cube LABS will sign a NDA and take necessary measures to ensure your IP and concept will not be misused.
