Mobile Game Development FAQ's
Here is a list of some frequently asked questions related to mobile game development.
What is Mobile Game Development?
Mobile game development is a process that takes a game idea and builds it for a mobile platform. The process involves various stages like idea generation, requirement analysis, designing, production, testing, launch, and many other stages. Many factors like the advanced features of the game, engaging storyline, and attractive graphics contribute to the success of the game. With regular updates and new features, the game can provide an exciting and engaging experience to the users.
Mobile Game Development Process
1. Idea Generation
The idea is the foundation of the whole game. Idea generation is a creative step. The better the idea, the better the chances of your game being a hit. The game idea can also be simple like “flip the bottle”, but then you have to think of an amazing execution strategy that can turn your simple idea into an interesting and enjoyable game.
2. Story Build-Up
Now that you have an idea, in this step, you have to create a story around your idea. For example - you have the idea of “flip the bottle”, now you have to decide to story around it, the levels, the backgrounds, etc. You have to think about why people will keep on flipping the bottle in your game, and you have to provide them with an engaging scenario to make your game interesting.
3. Requirement Analysis
After having a clear idea of what you want, now you have to figure out how to create this game. Which graphics to use, which technologies to use, how many levels, which platforms to target, etc. This is a very important step as after this the development steps will begin. The technologies that you choose can make or break your game, so take all the decisions after thorough research.
4. Game Design Document
A game Design Document as the name suggests is a document that contains details about all the elements of the game. Getting the design requirements in a document makes sure that the whole team is in sync with the requirements. It is a live document; therefore, feedback can be given. It is changed as and when there are any changes in the game.
5. Design Game Structure
Attraction is the key to sales. Users will play your game if it has incredible and unique graphics and scenes. Designing the game structure includes various elements like the characters, the environment, the texture, all the objects, Etc. This is the step that defines how your game will look.
6. Create Game Wireframe
The wireframe is the outline of your app. It provides a clear view of how your app will function, look and feel. In layman’s terms, it can be stated as a prototype. The wireframe will be a visual guide on how the game will work and how the transaction will happen from one part of the game to another. As it is just a prototype, there will not be a full graphical experience, but it will be enough to decide if the game is feeling good or not.
Once the prototype is passed, the actual game development starts, that is, the app will be created. It is a critical process. Therefore, even the smallest things or tasks should be done carefully. The game will be developed for all the platforms that you want to target, and all the functionalities and features will be added to the game.
This step ensures that the game offers the best gameplay experience, is free of all the bugs, and does not lags. Various tests will be conducted to ensure that the game runs perfectly. Apart from in-house testing, you can also try launching the Beta version of the game. This way the users can try their hands on the game and report all the bugs and suggestions.
9. Monetization Strategy Selection
The main incentive for developing the game is to turn the game into a money-making asset. Even if the game is for marketing reasons, it can still work as an earning digital asset. In this step, you have to select the monetization strategy that best suits your game and your strategy. The monetization strategies are - “in-app purchases”, “advertisements”, “subscriptions”, “premium version”, “paid game”, “real money game”, etc.
10. Game launch
The development is completed, the testing approves the game, and the monetization strategy is in place, now the only step remaining is to launch the game and let your targeted audience enjoy the masterpiece that you created. Follow the app store procedures and make your game available on the leading app stores.
11. Support & Maintenance
The game development process does not end after the game is launched. The process just enters the next step, i.e. Support, maintenance, and updates. Support makes sure that the users get all the help from your side, maintenance ensures that the game works at 100% efficiency, and the updates keep the game interesting by adding new features and levels to the game.
