DEVELOPMENT AREA SUCCESS STORIES


At Gamewave we have a large number of success stories. Developers just like you that wanted to get their game on the open market have partnered with Gamewave and used the Developer Area to promote their game successfully. We asked some of these developers what they thought of working with Gamewave.



Steve is from ‘Gods Interactive’ where he is the Lead Designer and the most popular title is “Kill the Gods” (Translated from Chinese). Steve is one of the founding members when the Company was created in early 2010. They now have 23 team members.
Gamewave: How much easier did our Development Area make it for you and your game to enter the market?
Steve: While we were developing our game, we had a lot of pressure to finish. About a year into the game, we were stuck with a few graphical glitches we could not seem to solve. When we were approached by Gamewave, they looked the game over and helped us get back on track with some good advice and valuable solutions. After five months working with [Gamewave], we made many changes to the game to make it more interesting and attractive to a larger player base. The game ended up making about 10 million USD from just one of their portals.
Gamewave: Describe your experience working with Gamewave?
Steve: Gamewave was very professional, and they even helped us promote our game when it was complete, giving us access to a larger player base.
Gamewave: Would you recommend Gamewave’s Development Area to other developers?
Steve: Sure. I would recommend my developer friends to Gamewave.



Matt is from ‘360 games’. He is the Lead Programmer and CEO of “ShangZhou Wuduan”and the most popular title is “Xianglongshibazhang” (Translated from Chinese). Matt has been making games since 2005 and formed the company in 2007, where he now has 12 employees.
Gamewave: How much easier did our Development Area make it for you and your game to enter the market?
Matt: One of the main problems we had as a small developer, as you can guess, was money. When I first created the company, I had to fund almost everything from my own pocket much to the horror of my wife (laughs)! After contacting Gamewave, they not only helped with design advice, they also invested in my company. When the game was completed, they put the game on their many portals and helped us with marketing. Not really our strong point to be certain.
Gamewave: Describe your experience working with Gamewave?
Matt: After bringing us to their Beijing office, they sat and worked with us to help realize our vision. Not only showing us our strengths, but our weaknesses as well. Overall, helping us create a better product.
Gamewave: Would you recommend Gamewave’s Development Area to other developers?
Matt: Very much. From their valuable insight, to their helpful staff, the experience with Gamewave was top notch.

Welcome! Here is a list of all of our games.
