How much would you make?

An average using game salad how much have each of you made? Please don't say you can earn from any amount I am wondering how much any of you personally made please. Before I start getting into gamesalad and investing into a nice Mac I would like to know how much I could possibly make. Thanks

    I know you said not to say this, but honestly it's the best and really only answer: You can earn any amount. It depends on the quality of your game. It depends on the marketing, the description, icon, or any variety of things.

    I've seen developers here create absolutely stunning games, yet they don't get noticed. On the flip side, I've seen developers release terrible apps and they get hundreds of downloads.

    Hello @Tr_2000 Really, this sort of thread is very tiring; check through the other threads - this topic comes up every couple of months or so.

    You'll get answers similar to the other threads too - people earning from next to nothing, to others making thousands of pounds a day - but that won't have any bearing on what you will potentially earn because of the different quality of games, different types of games, different amounts of exposure/marketing, different platforms, different unknown whims of the buying public, different amounts of games in a game maker's portfolio, etc., etc.

    So how much can you make? Nothing, or $5 a week, or $50, or $500, etc... it's like asking how long is a bit of string without showing any string.

    I always laugh at these types of threads. I remember the days when it was considered rude to ask people about money they make. It's seems you want someone to tell you that game making is a gold mine. Sorry but it's not. Kinda like the rest of life there is no holy grail.

    Nope, only Hard work.

    I don't see what's wrong with this question...

    Game making IS a gold mine.

    It's just that you have to dig millions of tons of dirt and rock to get your lil tiny nugget.

    @Tr_2000‌ don't worry...you apparently are new to the forums

    I suggest in the forums...just type your question above instead of creating a thread first. You will probably get a few search hits and see your exact question someone else has asked. It might help us to keep the old timer from getting pissed because...they don't like questions being asked to many times. A Mod might even close your thread because it's a duplicate of some sort.

    Personally I have 4 simple games...2 on iOS (free with ads), 1 for iPad (paid) and one for Mac (paid) and have made a little gold dust. $15

    You can earn any amount ;)

    I've got to be frank, this comes up every now and then, and the question is always ridiculous . . . what other people make has absolutely no bearing on what you (or any of us) can make, no bearing at all !

    It's a little walking into a guitar shop, picking up a guitar you like the look of, walking up to the cashier and asking them how much, on average, guitar players make with this guitar.

    The question is almost meanigless !

    @Tr_2000‌

    Before you wonder how much money you will make, you have to enjoy making the game first. If you are doing it just for money, it makes it very difficult to have fun with your app. Put your heart into the app and then reap the rewards later! :)

    Millions, based on good intentions and fantastical thinking. .....Focus on a game people will like AND will want to spend money on. If you are looking at $ before the spirit of your game....something is out of line.

    I made $0.5 in two of my games published in Google Play in a month. I don't think I can buy even a little speck of that gold dust. :#

    Yup, exactly my point of view too.

    @Socks‌

    Lol. You have some of the best...off the wall analogies there are.

    :D

    You better share the wealth if "YOUR" gold digger game takes off.

    Old timer?! Ha, I guess I'm getting that way... :D

    Yep, sorry @Tr_2000 seeing as you're relatively new to the Forums, I should have been more patient, and guessed you haven't seen the many similar threads... let's put it down to me "having a bad hair day"... (which is perhaps sort of funny if you knew what I look like... ;) )

    A rough guess $1 for each friend you have.

    How much do you think you will make ?

  • Speedy007Speedy007 Posts: 229Member

    I made 7 digits so far.

    To bad it read something like $0,000,000 and 00 cents...

    But hey you never know...I consider app creation a investment...Kinda like into stocks...Only i control how many apps are made, what kind of marketing, and how much time i put into this... I only just started yesterday soooooooooooo we will see...lol

    There is no really gold mine...Then again there are gold mines...hmmmm.... Its not guarantied that you will make even a dime but you never know... And hey, at the least you can tell the ladies you make IOS apps...Makes you sound more interesting...hehe...

    Gluck,
