With more than 2 million apps both in Apple App Store and Google Play (source) publishing your game in these stores and expect it to stand out is a bit complicated.
Finding a publisher – basically a company which operates in your same niche but in a larger scale – can dramatically increase the number of installations, and obviously your revenue, while you focus on what you are hopefully good at: developing apps.
If you read this blog, you are probably into hyper casual game development, so I made a selection of six hyper casual game studios which can help to publish your next game on Apple App Store or Google Play, in alphabetical order.
With a lot of hyper casual games released on Apple App Store and Google Play and a “Get in touch” button on their home page linking to a “publishing” email address, Appsolute may be your publisher for your next mobile app.
Galactic Thumb did not publish as much games as the other studios in this list, but provides a submission form and their Apple App Store catalog contains good hyper casual games. They seem weaker on Google Play but as they seem a three-people studio they may be quick and responsive when you get in touch with them.
Now part of the Ubisoft family, Ketchapp is one of the most prolific hyper casual games publisher with 1.5 billion downloads of more than 200 games developed by more than 100 developers, one of them it could be you. They provide a Google form to submit your game.
Nanovation is a mobile game developer based out of Silicon Valley. Their Facebook page says: “Got a cool game? Publish with us”
On their site you will be sent to a Google form where to submit your app.
Games published by Noodlecake Studios while being casual are the most complex than the ones published by other studios shown in this list but they provide an easy and clean submission page explaining why they might be the right choice for you.
Did you already work with one of these studios? Do you know hyper casual game publishers not included in this list? Let me know.
