The Android release should be happening very soon
Dude... How did it feel to make this much money? Are you overwhelmed?
Also, could you please give advice as to where to place ads, what ads to use, etc.
It was nice but I've made that type of money with other Stencyl games before so it wasn't super overwhelming! I'm just grateful to be able to do what I love and make a living, I owe Stencyl so much
Far as ads go, I tend to focus on arcade games so it's not too difficult to put interstitial ads in the game, every X amount of game overs seems to work best. I don't like banners (and I don't think they make that much money, though I could be wrong there!) so I don't use those. I try and put rewarded video ads in my games if I can place them in a non-intrusive way (in Yo a button to watch an ad is barely noticeable placed in one screen where players can earn a few extra coins if they want) just because I think it's nice to give people the option, and it DOES make decent money even tucked away in a corner like that. I also always have IAP in my games so players can remove the ads if they want.
Awesome. At least 95% of it would be from ad revenue isn't it?
More like 80%, the IAP did (again, surprisingly!) quite well, people have been very supportive by buying the 'remove ads'
