Has anyone ever made a game like this? GameIntel has the answers
Have you ever wondered if there are free tower defense games for teens with a kawaii art style? Was it a niche that was made or an opportunity to try?
Well, wonder no more. GameAnalytics recently launched GameIntel, with a powerful new search feature called Game Explorer. By tagging over 150,000 games with millions of data points, you can research the industry and find the answers to questions like these. Tags allow you to find games based on keywords, genres, themes, aesthetics, and much more granular searches.
You can use it to research your competition, inform your marketing strategy, and see if there is an opportunity to change your game to fill a gap in the market.
Find the games that meet specific criteria
In addition to the basic information that you can search (date range, genre, publisher information, etc.), the tags are divided into four key areas:
1. Key information. These include traits like 2D or 3D, their monetization model, single or multiplayer, key demographics, whether they use established intellectual property, and even what are the main motivations for players.
2. Themes. This allows you to search for games by different types of themes, like its mood or atmosphere, type of world and even up to the era or period of the story.
3. Aesthetic. Look at a particular artistic style. These include aesthetics such as Low Poly, Kawaii, Doodle, right down to photorealistic and retro.
4. Features and mechanics. This brings together all the mechanics for all genres, including those for different types of gameplay, right down to engagement and social mechanics. You can also filter out specific features like ad types, seasonal memberships, and whether or not a game has loot boxes.
By combining these tags, you can search each set in the database and filter to a group that meets very specific criteria.

Give your prototype the best chance

Find the best audience for your advertising campaigns
