Interview: How this Indie Game Studio Earned $10K in 48 Hours

Over $10k in only 48 hours. This is the amount Duc Nguyen and his team made using Chupamobile. The revenue was generated by a single product, Farm Business, a casual game similar to the hit Farmville. This was the first app template listed on Chupamobile by this company. They have now published more top-quality game templates on our marketplace and plan to release a bunch of new titles in the following weeks.

SunNet, which has over 300 titles published on the app stores and almost 10 million users, is working on a new hit, a third person shooting game. Duc says they will use the earnings generated through Chupamobile to partially fund this upcoming game that is still under development. Could Chupamobile be the next Kickstarter for indie game studios?

6 App Reskinning Fundamentals That People Forget

When I launched my first app, Mustache Bash, back in April 2012, I used what was then a little-known technique to get approximately 100,000 downloads in less than 48 hours for free.

After the app was approved, I set the price as $1.99 and published it. I then emailed, texted, and called friends and family, and asked them to download Mustache Bash and leave a review. Within a day or two, the app had over 20 reviews.

These activities set the stage for the technique I mentioned earlier: about a week after launch, I dropped the price from $1.99 to free, and all of the app review sites that track price drops for four- and five-star apps took notice and put up posts about Mustache Bash.
