Eight Elements To A Successful Game with Carlos Icaza (@CarlosIcaza)

What makes a game successful?

While there is no magic elixir as to what makes a game a success. I have seen a series of elements that most successful games have and in Cookie Monster lingo, here is the Letter E for the key elements to a successful game

  1. The game must be engaging.
  2. The game must be entertaining.
  3. The game must be enjoyable.
  4. The game must be elastic.
  5. The game must be expandable.
  6. You must game must expose the user to other players.
  7. A game starts in an endemic area.
  8. A game, once it reaches mass appeal, it becomes an epidemic. It is viral and at this point unstoppable.
