The games industry is doing fine and we’ve got the numbers to prove it! By whipping up a couple of statistical graphs we come to an interesting conclusion that may or may not be already spoiled in the title of the post. Hint: don’t stash away those smartphones and tablets yet.
Ask anyone where the core of the games industry is located and you’ll get the same answers every time. Sure, the United States and Japan are paramount to game development, but we’re making steady headway in Belgium as well, as illustrated by this article in business magazine Trends.
The time you could only use your cell to play games like Snake, Pinball and Tetris is long gone. More and more developers turn their attention to smartphone game development. Smart (excuse the pun) move if you ask us since smartphone users are expected to rise spectacularly over the coming years.
In order to get our name out there, PreviewLabs is listed in the Games Industry Black Book Q1&Q2 2011, a profile guide of game companies that’s freely distributed at all of the major industry events. And my, do we look strapping in that picture or what?
