"what is the reason why you publish on Scirra Arcade"
"I am talking about the games that hope to get revenue "
I can only talk about why i wont put a game on the arcade for this specific reason.
A couple of things.
1: Go where the gamers already are on their favorite online platform.
Scirra.com is mostly a site for active C2 game developers.
Also in this case i highly doubt most (if any) outside "gamers" are interested in the scirra arcade.
I don't know the numbers, but i have not seen anyone speak of it either.
Ofcourse it is nice to show your game to other C2 game devs, but that can also be done in the w.i.p. forum section, and doing that, they can play the game as intended.
2: Making money.
If this is a goal, then (for me) this means only use the platforms where i can indeed sell my game. (example steam)
Except for community building through a demo, which is Number 1: go where the gamers already are on their favorite online platform.
Hmmm this means i am kind of saying don't use scirra arcade.
In the case of "I am talking about the games that hope to get revenue " i think i am yes.
I am biased about this maybe, but i think scirra arcade is great mostly for C2 user that are looking for feedback from other game devs.
Personally i rather get feedback from non-dev-gamers.
Don't know if anything i said here make's sense
And no offense to any efforts scirra has made into the arcade.
I love every thing they do, i just don't find everything as useful compared to my goals.
But those are different to each.
