SurveyMonkey feature - The Rise and Fall of Nintendo’s Miitomo: Why Downloads Don’t Matter

''In Miitomo’s case, this lower-than-peers engagement translates into higher churn. The game’s weekly churn more than 50% means that over half of the users of Miitomo on a given week won’t come back and play it again the following week. For some apps that don’t need frequent use this isnt a problem, but for games like Miitomo that are designed for frequent use, churn at this level foreshadows a quick decline.

Low engagement and high churn cause a steady decline in active users for Miitomo. When comparing to the other games it’s not necessarily the lower peak weekly-active users (WAU) that’s of concern, but the fact that Miitomo drops off much more rapidly. Clash Royale’s lowest value is just 22% from its peak, Candy Crush Jelly’s is 32% from its peak, but Miitomo WAU is 74% lower than its peak value in a much shorter timespan.''

Soul Saga Kickstarter update - User Interface Enhancements

User Interface Enhancements

The biggest change over the past month has been a complete overhaul of the Soul Saga user interface design. The previous betas were simply using placeholder UI. I like to tell people that making a good game with a tight budget should be treated like baking a cake. You don't put on the toppings until you've baked the cake first! And now that Soul Saga is being finalized it's time to start piling on that sugary eye candy frosting!

Full update here (thanks Matt!)

Hyper Light Drifter collector's edition includes SNES cart

Hyper Light Drifter is no longer coming to the Wii U. That's extra sad when you see what the collector's edition includes. While that isn't a functional SNES cart, it's still something a lot of Nintendo fans would love to add to their collection.
