According to a report from SurveyMonkey Intelligence, “games that are published in the strategy, role-playing, adventure and action genres are leading the way in the amount of monthly revenue they generate for mobile publishers.”
The strategy and role-playing genres alone make up more than 30 percent of the U.S. mobile game market’s total revenue. According to the same report, strategy games drive $194 million in revenues each month on mobile devices while role-playing games generate $162 million, adventure games generate $114 million and action games produce $98 million in monthly revenues.
According to a recent release, “Pocket Starships is currently being marketed worldwide, and the game, which is both a Battle Arena Role-Playing Game and a real-time Strategy Space Combat Game, is seeing a rise in overall downloads in several markets specifically targeted by the company. SPYR received good news from the Apple App Store in Germany, Russia and France, where it is implementing a strategic push to introduce the game to the European gaming market. Between the three countries there are almost 150 million gamers.”
“Our European strategy absolutely needed to include France,” said Mike Turner, SPYR’s VP of Strategic Partnerships. “The French market has long been a stalwart in the global video game market. Games like Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance and Game of Thrones were all created by French companies. In fact, France is second only to the United States when it comes to video game production, so it was only natural that we conclude our marketing push in a gaming-friendly country like France.”
And it’s clearly working for SPYR right now.
Currently trading at a market capitalization of $97.5M, SPYR has a significant war chest ($4.2M) of cash on the books, which must be weighed relative to de minimus total accumulated debt.
