The analytical service DataMagic has upgraded its games classification system. When evaluating your desirable niche you can now filter games not just by their genres, but also by sub-genres (essentially, by their mechanics), and by setting.
The announcement went up on the service’s official FB page.
The new feature will come in handy for the developers who are about to start their next project and are currently doing market research to study competitors, both existing and potential.
For example, if you are thinking about making a bubble shooter in fairy-tale setting, you can select Bubble Shooter and Fairy tags, and the service will put together a list of all games meeting these criteria.
A survival game about zombies sounds promising to you? DataMagic has both Survival and Zombie tags so that you can see how many other titles you will be up against.
Following the upgrade, the analysts have asked for feedback.
