Let’s say your game isn’t that bad, but with healthy mind we can cleary see and know that out there are much better games with even cheaper gamepasses.
1. What is the problem?
The problem is your game desing.
Market with tycoon games is really hard to get succeeded with, because there are too many other much better tycoon games than yours. Which isn’t an insult, just a statement. So player doesn’t feel any need to buy a gamepass in your game, when he knows there are better games he can waste his money on.
2. How to fix this problem?
In real life, we see 2 types of successful business:
1) Take someone’s idea, and make it better, give them something new, entertaining.
2) Original idea - Which is really hard to figure out, but If you do have a really good concept, don’t wait for anything.
If you are trying to copy a concept, It’s not a bad strategy, but only If the market is new and fresh, not If It’s already hyped out and there are tons of other same stuff.
Get yourself a coffee, sit in your chair, play some nice songs and think straight… Try to imagine things and analyze the market, make a plan, write down all your ideas and pick the best ones.
Then take your concept and transform it into a game, and don’t forget to watch out for prices!
Wish you the best of luck, buddy!
