How much $$$ can you make from a 20K downloaded iOS Game? (article)

Hi everyone,

I've just published an article on Medium today. It's story of one of our games (Catena) during 2014, focusing on sale numbers and statistics which may be useful for game developers.

The article also mentions how different type of monetisation did during one year, and also what was the effect of review articles published about our game.
I tries to write as detailed as I can while trying to keep it brief.

Hope you like it, and if you have questions or need extra information which I might have skipped, please feel free to ask. I like sharing information.

Great read!

Thank you for sharing this article with us! It was a great read! We have worked for 2 years on Stealers Steal only to face a very disappointing reality and stats I feel ashamed to talk about. Making games for mobile is a pure gamble so better make games that have restricted scopes and casual gameplays...

Care for some great and intense stealth action gameplay? Check out Stealers Steal!
