The Stanley Parable

The Stanley Parable is an exploration of story, games, and choice. Except the story doesn’t matter, it might not even be a game, and if you ever actually do have a choice, well let me know how you did it

Horrendo freemium y pay to win…el triste estado de una industria

Lo dicho, estos modelos freemium no han ayudado más que a algunos cuantos, muy pocos, y si han arruinado una industria, aquí ni siquiera se cumple  el principio de Pareto

The vast majority of players do not make any purchases, in fact only 1.5% of players active in the month surveyed made an in-app purchase in that month.

50% of revenue is derived from the top 10% of those players who do make purchases. Expressed as a percentage of total players, this group represents a 0.15% of the total players in any given month.

The average time to first purchase is just under 24 hours. And of those players who go on to make a second purchase, the average time lapse between first and second purchase is a mere 1 hour 40 minutes

The average value of an in-app purchase is $5.94. While purchases between $1 and $5 represent a majority (67%), they contribute only 27% of total revenues. Purchases of over $50 contribute 9% of all revenues

“What’s interesting is that while many consider that the freemium model to be successful, there is still surprisingly little data relating to exactly how consumers interact with freemium games,” said Hugh Reynolds, CEO of Swrve. “With access of ten’s of millions of players, we have aggregated data from across our system to finally lift the lid on what goes on after install – and where the money is made.”

Consistent with other industries, this report shows that in mobile games, a small number of customers deliver a significant percentage of revenue. Data from this report, also indicates that companies should ask themselves if they understand who the specific customers are that are contributing to the highest percentage of revenue and if they have amended their acquisition strategy accordingly to retain users.

The Infinite Spider-Man: Retcons

What Would Spidey Do?

Amazing Spider-Man Annual 5 Parents

A good chunk of the Infinite Spider-Man essay series was devoted to the question of retcons, since One More Day changed major details about the wall-crawler’s backstory. His marriage to MJ was erased from history, the world forgot about his secret identity, and one supporting character came back from the dead.

Back in 2006, I realized that a retcon would be necessary to make some changes to the status quo of the Spider-Man comics. My first guess for what the storyline would be like was a cosmic reset involving Loki.

That entry led to a consideration of retcons in general, as fans are divided on the topic.
This was followed by an analysis of some of the complaints about retcons.
The question of whether retcons were too convoluted merited its own entry.

Fans have been used to retcons in the past. In that context, I looked how “Parallel Lives”…
