Episode 31: How to Get Featured in the iOS App Store
The holy grail for any iOS game developer is have their game featured on the front page of the App Store. Whether it’s in a coveted “Best of..” spot or as a deeper cut in a creative sub-category, App Store attention converts to downloads. Downloads convert to dollars. It’s not a coincidence that the most successful games in App Store history have all been heavily featured.
This week on the show we talk about an incredible reddit post we found by Amir Rajan, the developer of the iOS port of “A Dark Room”. In the post, Rajan lays out a step-by-step guide to help give your game the best chance for being featured in the iOS App Store. I know iOS might be a bad word for some of you, but fear not; Rajan’s post, and this episode, are chocked full of so much great, general game development advice that you might not be able to handle it.
