mansimas Posted January 5, 2021 Share Posted January 5, 2021 (edited) So. I am working on my HTML5 MMO-RTS for 5 years and its almost ready. I am wondering what next? The game is cross browser, cross device, fully responsive no matter or its 3000px x 300px or 300px x 3000px - all possible screen sizes and im very proud of it I have released my game before 2 years in Kongregate just to test, expecting like ~2000 registrations. But instead i got about 50.000 registrations. The game was poorly rated as it was like a buggy pre-alpha and people flew away. So, now i'm prepared to launch as a normal alpha or something like pre-beta. My next plan is to create a video, update tutorial and purchase like 20 unique play-testers who would give me some feedback and check how does it load to them and whats about the start. So, for the next ~2 months i still have what to do. And then - i want to release. To some serious publisher. Kongregate was OK, but i am unable to re-release the same game. Next option - ArmorGames. They want 50% cut. Thats ok for me. My game would be visible in their 1st MMO's page for like 2 years. But wondering that their site is flash-games based and probably not that popular as before. Next option - Facebook instant games. Dont know much about it. And as i expect, i would need to put like 2000$ for marketing in Facebook to get enough attraction - and thats ok. (i already spent for the game like 13000$) Next option - .io game publishers. As i seen somewhere, that they take no cut. Checked games there, many of them require flash or are hardware-heavy and unplayable. So my fresh smooth game would fit in there good probably. But i think not enough visitors.. Next option - android/ios APP. I can easily transform my web game into android app. But i dont know actually or it would be that easy as the game is quite complex and maybe would like to start with having it as iframe rather than an APP. Next option - my own website publishing. So i would have to market it in FB, gogle, youtube and make an attractive website, what will prolong the release. and i want it faster. Next option - other HTML5 publishers similar to Kongregate/ArmorGames. But i want probably start with 1, so the release would be faster. And one where i would have less cut and cheaper marketing. So, do you have any experience or opinion what should i do? Im quite confused as all these options have their cons and pros. and dont know what would be the best choice.
