The Changing Nature of Videogames
Since the early 1980s, when videogames finally reached the homes of a mainstream audience, a single development and publishing model prevailed. Videogames were created as stand-alone projects. They were completed and finalised before being published and sold via retail as ‘products’.
However, over the last 8-10 years, thanks to the inexorable growth of the mobile and online gaming markets, more and more games are now released with ongoing updates, new downloadable content, live ‘events’ and online multiplayer competition.This model requires game creators to manage the entire player life-cycle, from initial discovery, through to churn and reengagement, in order to maximise the lifetime value of every player.
This demands a very different skill set to that of videogame development, as well as a whole new set of tools to manage the ‘live operations’ (live ops).While videogame developers worldwide have access to powerful tools and platforms which enable them to create and publish their work across multiple platforms, few of these game ‘engines’ provided live ops capabilities.
This offered an opportunity for an innovative developer to create a new solution.
