Okay so premium games on mobile don’t sell. or do they?


The Room

1/5 Okay so premium games on mobile don’t sell, so we keep getting told by the investor/marketing wing of the industry…

Tweeted: Fireproof Games’ director and co-founder Barry Meade.

2/5 Well today Fireproof received word The Room Two has sold 1.2m. Combined with The Room we’re at 5.4m sales over 14 months…

3/5 Yet this all happened without Fireproof spending any money on marketing or PR or analysts or analytics…

 4/5 We had no experience of mobile, we made it up as we went along, our game wasn’t a service & we believed in gamer word of mouth…

5/5 Point? Dunno. But maybe what mobile games needs is less databollocks and more devs who believe in gamers & what gamers want

Mobile puzzle game The Room and its sequel The Room 2 have sold more than 5.4 million copies and are available of Ios and Android. Room 2 currently 2.69 Euros.
