As the gaming community has known for a long time, a game is not just about winning or losing, its far more important than that. Games are increasing in complexity all the time and are now firmly rooted in our everyday lives. Recent daily news reports about the invasion of PokemonGO players to such diverse locations as The White House to Ayers Rock, causing mayhem in their wake, are proof of this. To ignore the power of games to influence people and create market share would be a mistake for business especially those involved in building their brand. The future of marketing is complex and apps and games are a very useful vehicle and tool to drive business forward. This is not surprising to us at Fierce Fun, but what does surprise us, is the amount of companies both large and small, that are completely unaware of the marketing potential a bespoke game can have to their bottom line. Not only do games have the power to influence our lives but they are a powerful force for marketing and in the area of education and learning.
Free to play (F2P) is the only way or that is what we like to say here at Fierce Fun. Bag Man here to acquaint you with the best in F2P game in trivia today. Let just say I am the compere with the severe stare or if you could see under my bag ..what wondrous sight you would see. Sorry I dont want to be vainglorious, but have you checked out the size of my bag, well this may give you an indication of the size of my head and continue down that avenue and yes it implies I have an enormous brain. Ok, ok self praise is no praise, I know that, but I dont know who said that? Let me jot that down as a quiz question for future versions of Big Bad Quiz, the best trivia quiz game for free for your smartphone or tablet, designed with your smart self in mind.
Some say the huge popularity of free to play games is in the ease and speed that you can download them. To try our games there is no long winded typing in of the credit card number or hoping you have money in your paypal account or hoping the student grant or wages have been put into your debit card account. No those days are over my friend. This is free to play. But nothing is free I hear you say, but Bag Man says yes the best things in life are free and one of them is Big Bad Quiz. Ok, it is freemium, so where is the catch with freemium games? Ok, Fierce Fun, we use the freemium model. We believe that choice is the key to a good user experience when considering moving into the game more deeply. With a good game you should not feel the monetisation mechanics. (F2P) games like Fierce Funs Big Bad Quiz, Supercell’s Clash of Clans, King’s Candy Crush Saga are hugely popular despite having some in app purchases. But players who demand more are increasingly likely to invest a small amount of cash to heighten their gaming experience. After all gamers invest a lot of time playing their favourite games and is not time, the most precious commodity we have, as humans.? Yes Bag Man is H-U-M-A-N.
Ok I believe, some people are down in the mouth about freemium, but that is only if the user experience does not warrant the investment. Here at Fierce Fun, we believe in empowering our players, and bringing them back again and again and that is why we have such modest monetisation expectations. But it is up to you the gamer to choose stay put, or pay to play a little harder.
Out of your house into your phone
Gaming online, it seems to me has shifted locations in the last few years. And it is only reasonable that with the incredible smartphones and tablets available today, it makes perfect sense to use these little gadgets to play your favourite game. This saves you the bother of buying big consoles and being tied to the living room or bedroom just to enjoy the thrill of a good gaming experience. This doesn’t mean you cannot share the experience, with more connected devices such as smartphones and tablets, you can play solo or with others anywhere.
F2P The biggest game in town
Okay its time for numbers, this one is good, 16 of the top grossing iPhone apps ( not just in the games section) in the USA are freemium games and this set to increase ongoing. Nickelodeon has conducted research to suggest that 34% of children under 11 years of age, have tablets. Tablets are being used in schools as learning devices and replacing copybooks. The new kids on the block will be the swipe generation. The swipe generation want to move in and out of the digital and real world with ease and so this is being made possible. We now have many toys inspired by games, and soon we will have theme parks as well. We also have games inspired by toys for example Lego now has many games on the shelf. They even have games that interact in real time with their Legoland theme parks.
Games and social media
There is a great sense of sharing when you use your game in tandem with your social media accounts. Fierce Funs Big Bad quiz allows you do this and interact with your Facebook account and even encourages you to log in with Facebook. This along with all the great feature which are yours to download free, will I am sure bring you back repeatedly to me the Bag Man, compere of comperes and brain to the gods.
