ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #81 – OwnGames – “How a game developer become online round tofu seller without selling tofu”

Standard

Yesterday we had CEO and Founder of OwnGames shared about their awesome journey!!! We had contacted the CEO two months before but he had really tight schedule (he actually is now) so we were very lucky to finally can have him on our codeMeetUp()! He flew from Surabaya and drove straight to Digilife Dago and share huge inspirations with ProCodeCG πŸ™‚

The audience and the setting up scene πŸ™‚

IMG_2662

Muhammad, ProCodeCG Kids, with the whole family was also there πŸ™‚ Thanks for coming πŸ™‚

IMG_2695

IMG_2664

One of ProCodeCG Kids, Clarence wanted to take picture with the famous CEO of Tahu Bulat πŸ˜€

IMG_2663

Eldwin Viriya. This smart, hardworker, successful, young man was graduated from Informatics UNPAR. The most impressive thing about him is his endless smile, peaceful tone and huge humbleness rarely find in most people!
IMG_2669

Eldwin and his brother JevfinΒ startedΒ OwnGames on 2011. Today, people know Tahu Bulat Games more than they know about OwnGames πŸ™‚ Yes, because Tahu Bulat beat Clash of Clans position on Playstore πŸ˜‰
IMG_2667

In the beginning of the journey, OwnGames created games for Nokia

IMG_2670

The game won lots of competition. Eldwin who was applying to take a master degree had to cancel because he had to run the busy and successful OwnGames.
IMG_2671

And then Microsoft bought Nokia so OwnGames started to create games for Windows Phone too.

IMG_2672

And it won again.
IMG_2673

OwnGames created more games on Windows Phone, Android and iOS
IMG_2674

And won again πŸ™‚

IMG_2675

Winning lots of competition brought OwnGames all over the world to meet more people and partners

IMG_2677

And OwnGames kept creating and winning πŸ™‚

IMG_2678

But creating games needs research
IMG_2679

Because even partnering with Google and being featured on Google Play only boost the number of installation for a very short time, and then people stop using the game and uninstall the game

IMG_2680

So OwnGames did some research to find out that 74% of internet user via mobile using Android
IMG_2682

But the yellow line, that shows the growing number of user, belong to “unknown”. Not one of the most popular brand πŸ™‚

IMG_2683

It was revealed that there are some non-famous brand in the market that have been sold more than those popular brands πŸ™‚
IMG_2684

This kind of smartphone is very cheap. Much cheaper than Samsung and other popular brands.

IMG_2685

IMG_2686

The cheap smartphones has very limited storage and memory. It can only store limited number of apps.
IMG_2687

So OwnGames concluded that they had to create games that only require small space. Because to be able to draw people to download and try a game is that the size should be small so it will fit in most of smartphones.
IMG_2688

The details about memory usage on smartphone
IMG_2689

OwnGames created Own Super Squad, a high quality game (that requires lots of resource to create) that has big size and Own Pet Dragon, with less quality but has small size, and compare it. Own Super Squad got better rating but less download compared to Own Pet Dragon that has worse rating but has been download more than 100 thousand times due to its small size.
IMG_2693

Not only quota that is limited. Memory too.
IMG_2694

Revenue of Freemium Game depends on how long the game is on the device (not uninstalled) and being played.
IMG_2696

Tahu Bulat is successful because of the small size and lots of features to keep people coming back. The left one is the earlier versions with less features. After OwnGames gathered feedback from users, it gradually improved the game to be the picture on the right. More features, more gimmick, more things that keep people attached to the game.

IMG_2697

“Start small..
IMG_2698

..and gradually improve it to be BIG.” – OwnGames

IMG_2699

So inspiring! Thank you!!!
IMG_2700

This is Azriel, another ProCodeCG Kids that couldn’t stop playing Tahu Bulat πŸ˜€

IMG_2701
IMG_2702

Q & A Sessions

IMG_2703

And the picture of us πŸ™‚

IMG_2706

After session

IMG_2707

And this is the amazing thing about this young CEO. He helped to tidy up the place!
IMG_2708

Unbelievable!

IMG_2709

So glad to know OwnGames and got inspired with so many insights πŸ™‚ See you again very soon OwnGames πŸ™‚ ❀
