FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why Should I Outsource Mobile Game Development?

When developing a mobile game, outsourcing is primarily about saving time and resources. Why is it crucial in today’s mobile gaming industry? With the growing competition, the need for rapid production rises, implying that the faster you launch, the more ahead of competitors you’ll be. That’s why more and more mobile game businesses are now relying on outsourcing game development services. Even industry giants like Ubisoft, Gameloft, Marvel, and DreamWorks frequently make use of this cooperation model.

Are Mobile Games Still Popular?

The popularity of mobile games is not declining, and it certainly won’t be for the next couple of years. NewZoo predicts that there will be 2.7 billion gamers globally by the end of this year, with 2.5 billion that play on mobile devices.

Some are worried about the mobile game popularity downturn with the releases of new consoles and powerful PCs. However, you can’t take a console on the go. Portability has been and will remain an enormous advantage of smartphones over other gaming devices.

Hence, getting iOS game development, Android game development, or cross-platform game development services from a specialized vendor is a highly relevant choice today. We have 9+ years of hands-on experience creating mobile games that top the charts. Hire mobile game developers now!

Which Game Engine Is Best for Mobile Game Development?

There are quite a few great engines for mobile game development; however, we would like to point out two of the most popular game engines among developers – Unity and Unreal Engine. 

Both Unity and Unreal have extensive connections to the majority of commercially available software and can produce AAA-quality visuals. These engines also offer a wide range of tools for game makers, such as a terrain editor, VR Support, physics simulations, and others that help create a successful mobile game.

Unity has been considered ideal for indie developers and small to medium-sized studios for a long time due to its accessibility and affordability. Due to recent changes in their policy and a newly introduced runtime fee (see Unity Disclaimer), some may find the cost structure less favorable; thus, we would, unfortunately, eliminate affordability from its array of benefits.

Nevertheless, this is a game engine that allows for the creation of 2D mobile games as well as 3D, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mobile game development for a wide range of platforms. Its Asset Store and a large community provide a vast resource of pre-made assets and plugins, facilitating faster development. If your choice falls on Unity, we’ll carefully evaluate the mobile game project scale and financial considerations, making sure the selected features align with your development goals and budget constraints.

Unreal Engine is renowned for its cutting-edge graphics and powerful capabilities. It excels in high-end 3D visuals, making it the go-to choice for AAA game development. Unreal Engine is best suited for projects that demand top-notch graphics and realistic simulations. It offers unparalleled graphical fidelity and is favored by developers working on visually stunning and resource-intensive projects. It’s an excellent choice for those focusing on graphical “trailblazing” in their mobile games, whether a large or medium-sized company.

Choosing the game engine depends on your mobile game development idea and goals. You need to consider all must-haves in performance, graphics, pricing, number of available assets, developer & designer criteria, etc. Stepico’s game developers will gladly help you choose the engine that perfectly fits all your requirements and estimate how long it will take to create a mobile game of your desires.

Our mobile game development company has extensive experience in creating mobile games on various engines and development platforms. We offer Unity game development, providing robust and flexible mobile gaming solutions to well-known game distributors. We are also actively building the Unreal department, filling it with top-notch gamedevelopers with comprehensive mobile game app development knowledge and skills.
