10. Re: Morning Consolidation Jul 5, 2012, 14:33 Beamer
Draw Something is hysterical, too, as it hemorrhaged players. It was a nice distraction, but then people got tired of drawing penises for strangers.

Mobile is finicky and impossible to market and impossible to predict success. So many companies just dump things out there, and others carefully craft games to be monetized by microtransactions.

These seem to be the only games recruiters I hear from these days, too. "We have a great opportunity for you with this company that has one product which is a f2p mobile game aimed at 8 year olds whose parents will buy them virtual things to keep them quiet."
I won't bet my career on a gold rush. Now, some of these companies are founding by gaming people, not games people, who are probably banking on online poker becoming legal again soon. That I may be more willing to gamble on, no pun intended...
