Kalba.Lt Language Day Camp for Kids

Kalba.Lt, an educational organisation helping kids, teens, adults and companies in Lithuania learn foreign languages, hosted Language Day Camp for Kids in Vilnius on January 5th and invited TutoTOONS to present what game creators do. In Language Day Camps kids learn English and Chinese in the morning, play, draw and socialize, and meet guests in the afternoon. TutoTOONS developer Deividas Baumilas introduced the daily tasks of game developers and game artists, and explained how to become a game creator. You have to study and work hard! It’s amazing how many questions kids asked and how many ideas they suggested for new games. Some are even learning how to code and have already created a few video games, and one kid is planning to join TutoTOONS team in the future. 😎 When we hang out with kids, games are always involved and Language Day Camp was not an exception. Boys really liked our old but still cool Car Builder 3 and girls loved Miss Preschool Math World. It was very flattering to see that kids recognise TutoTOONS owl and know our games. ☺ Many thanks to Kalba.Lt for inviting us!

Meet and Learn from Mike Hines

Meet and learn from Mike Hines (Amazon), the new best friend of TutoTOONS! :) We’re organising a meet-up with Mike on November 7th at ISM Innobase (Arklių Str. 18 Vilnius), 19:00. RSVP and invite your friends game developers!  Topics that Mike will cover: What the Top 50 Apps Do With In App Purchasing That the Rest of Us Don’t Amazon has collected data about how users engage with IAP in games, and we have reviewed how the most profitable apps are using IAP to monetize successfully. We found data on two levels: HOW the top 50 did differently (Retention data, session length data, units sold and price data) and WHAT they did differently to get those results. It turns out there are a handful of things that most of the top 50 do that other games don’t do. We’ll share that actionable data with you in this session. Is This Really All There Is? More Ways to Monetize We’ve all heard of premium, freemium and ad-supported monetization models, but is that really all there is? No, there are more ways to monetize your app than just those three choices. Is your app using all of the available monetization mechanics? In this presentation, Amazon reviews additional ways you can monetize your app both inside and outside of the app itself, including Amazon Underground. Most of these monetization options will work in conjunction with other established monetization mechanics regardless of whether your app targets iOS, Android, or Windows Mobile devices. Short Bio  Mike Hines is a recovering serial entrepreneur, and is currently a Developer Evangelist for the Amazon Appstore. An advocate for getting more developers over the app poverty line, Mike is on a continuing mission to find out and share what currently is and isn’t working in mobile app monetization, and to identify trends that shape the industry. Mike will be happy to take questions on just about any mobile app topic. Join us on Monday!

Meet Daria, Creator of Doll House Games

“Doll House Cleanup” keeps its position in TutoTOONS monthly top artist list since it was published. High time to meet the artist of this game - Daria Petrova! Started as a freelancer, now she is creating games on her own. Sneak Peek at the Game Doll House Cleanup is a game for girls that turns simple daily chores into a fun play time. Little girl Aria and her puppy Toby will help kids learn how to keep things tidy, clean up the room, make the bed, organize toys, take care of others and help the parents at home. Watch more in the video! TutoTOONS: Hi Daria! Tell us a little about yourself. Daria: Hi! I’m a graphic designer from Russia. My specialty is an economist but I always dreamed to be an artist. The fact that I am working with kids’ industry makes me very happy and I hope makes my players happy too. :) What about your game development experience, did you have some before TutoTOONS? I’ve never had any game developing experience before but I’ve been working in children industry for about 8 years so it makes the process a bit easier. Now tell us about your games. How do you come up with game ideas? What inspires you? Well, as for the first Doll House game, it was a freelancer contract, so the game idea wasn’t mine. But it was a great experience and I’m very thankful to TutoTOONS for this opportunity. This world of kids games that I discovered with TutoTOONS is really amazing and fun! Doll House Cleanup is a cleaning game for the littlest girls created in a cute and bright way to bring fun time for the little players. Now we are finishing a new Doll House version and this time I chose the game topics myself, with a big support from the TutoTOONS team. What I can say about game ideas - the first and the most important thing you have to do is to clearly understand what your players need the most. I get inspired by many things: successful TutoTOONS games like Sweet Baby Girl series, Disney movies, Behance artworks and many many other things. Disney inspires us too, we even have a Disney quote on the wall in our meeting room. What is the most fun part of creating games? The best part is when after rough sketches you can see the final result and suddenly your game and characters start to live their own life! That’s true! And what is the most challenging for you in game creation process? To realise what your players need and to create a cool game idea! Also, to create marketing materials that will express your game idea to the fullest. How long do you usually create one game? Do you work on your own or does someone help you with your games? It’s hard to calculate but it takes quite lot of time. I had a good support from the TutoTOONS team and sometimes I also ask advice from my family and friends. What, in your opinion, is the most important thing in game development? Idea and enjoying working! Share a few game creation tips with people who are just starting to create their first game. Learn and gain experience from other successful games and artists, stay with the things you love and can do the best but always think about what your players need. Always try to create beautiful, joyful and funny little world in your games! Nice! Are you planning to make more games with TutoTOONS? Feel free to reveal some details! Sure! I have many ideas! Probably it will be a cute and glamourous dress up game. Sounds like something our players really love. How would you describe TutoTOONS in 1 sentence? Fun and easy game platform for everyone. Any final thoughts? Just thank you! Thank you! Time to play! Help little Aria and her dog Toby clean up the doll house!
