As far as forecasts go, when it comes to Mobile Gaming and being able to efficiently gauge what is popular, and determining the trends that will be leaning towards within the next couple of months is no easy feat.
The quest for the best mobile gaming developer trends, especially in this digital age and era, is for mobile developers within the indutry to realise that it is imperative to remain fresh, cutting-edge and up-to-date.
This needs to be made possible fo rthe end-user, while also possessing the ability to remain firmly rooted in what the the player in question is familiar with, when it comes to gaming. Therefore a fine line it is to create just the right mix of new meets familiar.
Also, encompassing the very real need the player may have is the owant to experience something new – this is what should remain at the forefront of any worthwhile mobile gaming developer in 2018.
Having said all of the above, it is indeed only the top-level casino operators, the likes of the mFortune brand, for example, that will be among the first few mobile gaming providers that continually offer its clientele only the latest and best in mobile gaming developments.
We predict the following trends will have mobile gaming developers vying for a piece of the action in 2018 to be:
★ Augmented Reality Gaming
This trend literally brings together the best of two worlds, creating an entirely new form of gaming. When these two worlds, namely the physical world and the virtual world, collide – augmented reality is born. A great example of an augmented reality mobile game that took the world by storm (and quite frankly, changed up the game of AR implementation altogether) is the fun-filled Pokemon Go AR game. Similarly to this game, and what all avid online casino game players can expect to see (and play) are more AR-themed games. All in all meaning to say that a great trend for 2018 for mobile gaming developers to focus on would be AR gaming.
★ Watch out for the Smart Watches Trend
The immensely popular and almost now commonplace – in all walks of life – mobile gaming development trend to keep a keen eye out for is the smart-watches movement, or in other words the ‘wearable devices’ method of mobile gaming.
The great thing about wearable device gaming is that players can play without the schlep of having to bring out a mobile device .
This makes for easy, optimal gameplay anywhere, any time of the day – all the time. The popularity and usability of wearable devices as a mobile gaming trend is quickly picking up the pace and gaining momentum in 2018. This is perhaps why we can foresee an even brighter, greater more popular future for this top trend; furthermore ensuring that mobile game developers will indeed be taking this wearable device trend into consideration. Either that or the mobile gaming app developer in question may find themselves left behind in the race to great mobile gaming.
★ Social Gaming
The popularity and sheer overwhelming usage of social media platforms is indeed a well-known fact to anybody in moder-day society.
It is quite common knowledge that everything worth anything has some kind of social media presence online these days, accordingly, so too has the mobile gaming world taken to social media. Hence, the next big mobile gaming trend for 2018 is namely, Social Gaming.
Many a mobile gaming developer has seen the great potential for customer engagement and interaction that Social Gaming offers, which in turn has spurned these mobile gaming developers to looking towards Social Gaming as a feasible means to ensure all their players are met with a current, up-to-date forms of engagement that is up-to-the-minute, easy-to-use and offers top-notch gameplay all the way.
Although the above are just three top trends mentioned that we would like to watch out for in 2018, as in our opinion, it will be these top three trends (as mentioned above) that are set to become even more popular and even more commonplace this year and into the future. Enjoy watching these top mobile gaming developement trends unfurl as the year progresses.
