The newest addition to the mobile game – Cookie Clicker RPG called Orcs.
„Endlessly seeking for those Power Crystals.
The Orc Shaman.“
So 2.5 Years as one man Indie Mobile Game Developer here is my most recent Statistic update.
I am kind of struggling for the reason that the money pretty much remained the same even tough the Downloads increased massively within the last couple months. It could be related to an overall lower eCPM or that the variety of shown ads isn’t that high at the moment so players are less likely to be interested and interact with the Ad Units. I also switched on interstitial videos instead just pop ups roughly in the middle of the year which co-created the newest highest peak of around $250 in one Day mostly 85% by the game Orcs. A number I would have liked to see more often 😛 But still it felt pretty exciting.
The Daily New Installs / New Players
A lot of them go to the Game PewDiePug which unfortunately isn’t the one with the highest ARPU.
The actually daily Money generated through the Chartboost interstitial pop ups and videos
Since I assumed the videos my reduce the amount of Boot ups since they are so hardly annoyed and this could be another reason for the not linearly rising daily income. But it isn’t also the Boot up look good compared to new Installs and history.
My newest mobile game title just went live. The Android versions first (iPhone 7 days later)

Here quickly what I did so far Marketing wise for my self-made Mobile Games and what marketing partner I look for.
The Mini Push
So far I used Facebook Ad Campaigns on App Installs. Investing 100 Euro using a CPC of $ 0.25 leading roughly 300 extra downloads.(they convert very well) It is kind of the a mini push to give a game the real chance to be discovered.
My ARPU’S (Average revenue per User)
Simple highscore games $ 0.05 ARPU
Example: Three Points
Simple Cookie clicker games had an ARPU of $ 0.08.
Orcs, My newest game has an ARPU of $ 0.15
Which is by far the highest I achieved so far. Additionally it gained a solid fan base.
The Game will get updates on a regular base, to maintain players it has and give them more to do.
I am looking for more exposure for the game now.
The plan is to come profitable out of the next marketing move and I need a strong partner for that.
Someone who is interested to help me up and work with me over some time.
One of the strategies would be to boost the game to the top 10 of a smaller country to get the game noticed.
Another would be reaching more Review sites and blogs which have real active players visting.
For the start i am willing to invest up to 1000 Euro.
I only invest in options either offering a CPC < $ 0.15 with a real goal (not jus some for the installs sake) aiming for a country push. Witch will require a partner that can bring the downloads within the required time frame to rank the top 10 of the small country.
Or multiple review/media exposure offers that results in enough estimated downloads to pay back the expenses.
So is there anyone which feels like we can do great?
