CZN Burak – The Game, by Boss Bunny and Waysun Inc.

CZN Burak has entered the mobile gaming arena. Turkish Chef Burak Özdemir, nicknamed CZN Burak, has announced the launch of his new mobile game in partnership with Boss Bunny Games that will be launched at Etisalat Beach Canteen.

What the Future of Mobile Gaming Might Look Like

Mobile gaming has been a part of mainstream culture since Tetris hit the very small screen in 1994 (bet you thought it was Snake in 1997). Fast forward 27 years and the landscape has evolved to include multi-player experiences, incredible graphics, and epic storylines. But, what’s next?

Here’s a list of 5 things experts expect for the future of mobile gaming.

1. Financially, mobile gaming is projected to grow.

$100 billion – that’s the revenue mobile gaming is set to reach by the end of 2021, according to Newzoo. The 2010’s were a double-digit decade of growth for the industry. With advances in tech and the saturation of iPhones (or Androids, we don’t judge), that number is likely to continue growing into the next decade.

2. Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) will become increasingly common.

Remember back in 2016 when Oculus VR headsets were all the rage? Well, developers and engineers are continuously working on ways to bring that tech to our phones.

Features like Google AR and those flaw-erasing, super-popular Snapchat filters have made use of this tech already. Over time, experts expect people will become more accustomed to AR and VR, adding new elements to the mobile experience.

3. More devices will be designed with mobile gaming in mind.

Tech companies like Huawei, Asus, and Lenovo, both well-known for making computers, have released phones recommended for mobile gamers. Topping the list of features, they offer include faster refresh rates, gorgeous displays, and dual front-facing speakers.

As graphics and features continue to excel, the devices used to play will follow suit. Food for thought: If Apple made a phone for mobile gaming, would people buy it? Until then, check out TechRadar’s recommended gaming phones here.

4. 5G will make it easier to play in real-time.

One thing that’s created a community amongst console gamers throughout the years is the ability to team-up and play immersive games in real-time. With the emergence of 5G, mobile-first products will increasingly draw in players for this same reason.

Enjoy the camaraderie and instant action on the go? Get ready. Faster download speeds and stronger internet will create seamless playing experiences according to an article from the WSJ.

5. Cross-platform capabilities will continue to grow.

Whether a gamer’s primary console is a PlayStation or a Samsung, developers are making strides to connect them all. Fortnite now allows players from all platforms to compete in its free-to-play battle royale game.

The industry expects to see other companies expanding their cross-platform capabilities to attract new players and reach new markets.

We want to know: what are you looking forward to most? The surge of 5G networks, cross-platform expansion, or the potential for holograms? With the mobile gaming industry on the up-and-up, it’ll be interesting to see what we’re doing with our phones in another 27 years.

4 Mobile Gaming Genres You Need To Know About

August 4, 2021

Just like books and movies, games have genres, too. If you’re an industry professional, understanding the top genres can be helpful in business. And, if you’re just an enthusiastic gamer, you might need this information for trivia eventually — you never know.

Here are four super-popular mobile gaming genres for Android users, according to Statista.

Casual

Flappy Bird, Super Nano Jumper, and Comic Boy are all considered casual games. So what makes a game… casual?

Well, typically these games have a lighter learning curve. They also don’t demand a lot of time from the player, meaning sessions are shorter.

Additionally, casual games are generally designed to appeal to a mass audience. It’s worth noting that plenty of mobile games are technically considered casual even if they fit into another genre. According to an article by Udonis, Casual games make up 78% of mobile game downloads.

Puzzle

You might have guessed already, but Puzzle games are notoriously popular on both the Google and Apple App Stores. Drop Four, Color Maze, and Tetris are just a few fun and challenging puzzle games we love. Depending on who you ask, Candy Crush and Bejeweled are also considered puzzle games, but a more specific type, called a Match 3.

Simulation

Simulation games are characterized by their similarity to real life. Most often, these games replicate the feeling of real-life events, like the famous Sims game we all know and love. Other common themes include caring for a pet, interior designing, hunting, or flying an airplane.

Did you know simulation-style games are used for training purposes, too? Imagine playing a version of “The Office” to prepare for the dynamics of working 9-5.

Runner

Runners are those fun games you stand over your friends shoulder to watch. Subway Surfers and Temple Run are the two most notable runner games to date. One of the best things about runner games is that there are seemingly no limits to how far you can go.

If you have reached the end of one of these though, please tell us what happens.

Which of these genres do you find yourself playing most?

5 Things to Know About Mobile Gaming

July 7, 2021

If you’ve been on the internet lately (we know you have) you’ve probably read that the mobile gaming industry is on the rise. Whether you’re new to the industry or a seasoned vet, there’s always more to know about the fast-paced world of gaming.

We asked our team, “what’s one thing you think everyone should know about mobile games and development?” After the expected, “I can’t pick just one,” here’s what they said.

1. “There is a game for everyone”

David, our Software Engineer Lead said, “There are games for everyone. Even if you don’t consider yourself a gamer, there is a game for you.” Whether you love solving puzzles, interior designing or crave to solve puzzles through interior design, your app store likely has the solution.

Key takeaway: You’re probably a gamer… you just don’t know it yet. 

2. “Mobile gaming is the future”

In 2018, mobile gaming generated 50% of global gaming revenue according to Newzoo. From a business perspective, jumping in the mobile gaming arena might be a wise decision. Even Netflix has thrown its hat in the ring, recently announcing it will begin dabbling in gaming. Allen, our Business Strategist, noted the mobile gaming industry has enormous growth potential.

You might be curious why mobile is growing so rapidly. We can attribute it, in part, to this stat: currently 67% of the world’s population has a mobile phone. This allows for mobile gaming to flourish since most players already have all the tools they need. No extra hardware needed for beginners to join in the fun.

Key takeaway: Mobile gaming is everywhere – and likely isn’t going away anytime soon.

3. “Developing a mobile game is a lot of work”

While you’re playing that mobile game you always turn to when you’re waiting, you probably don’t consider how much time went into making it – and that’s fair. We get it.

However, our Backend Developer Tim, said, “There can be thousands of hours of work that goes into the smallest part of a game.” Crafting a simple user experience is actually very complex. According to 3sidedcube, general app development takes an average of 9 months – the same amount of time it takes to have a child.

Key takeaway: Making a mobile game requires a lot of time and resources.

4. “Nobody works in a silo”

“From art to tech, all parts of game development require constant communication,” says our PM Ashlie. In order to create a cohesive experience for the player, everyone needs to be on the same page during development.

Fast changes and new builds require everyone to be in the loop. Not to mention, most developers and creatives have more than one talent that contributes to the end result of a game, so open communication is important to create the best experience for the player.

Key takeaway: Communication and collaboration makes the dream work.

5. “Planning takes a lot of time”

You’ve likely heard that failure to plan is planning to fail. Not only do you have to plan when you’ll execute your design and development, you also have to plan time to, well, plan.

Adam, our Project Coordinator, says, “Planning takes a lot of time. You have to make short term plans – from days to weeks – and long-term plans – extending to years in the future. You also have to plan for roadblocks and be able to have time allotted to course correct if a build breaks.”

Key takeaway: Have a plan but be able to adjust accordingly.

Mobile games are more accessible, social, and entertaining than ever before. Whether you make mobile games or play them, we want to know. What’s one thing everyone should know about mobile gaming?
