    If this doesn't come to windows it's irrelevant for PC gaming. Sad but true.


    We don't know what he means by successfull, probably the huge cut they take on somebody else's work.

    In a way, they're correct. Mobile games are the most lucrative so far, since idiots just love to funnel microtransaction money into their games. From what I've briefly researched, the money in it is quite staggering, when compared to normal gaming platforms (including modern consoles), also thanks to the much lover cost of mobile game development. I mean, Candy Crush Saga makes more dosh than Call of Duty!

    With all that said, I couldn't care less for about 99,9% of the "300,000 free and paid games, supported by advertising or in-app purchases" that "are enjoyed by hundreds of millions of players around the world". The overwhelming majority of it is extremely casual, mindless crap that only exists ti siphon microtransactions.

    So I see Oceanhorn 2 is going through a new development again just from the icon.

    Only being on the Apple Arcade is super disappointing. The first game was fun to play on my PC.

    Wouldn't be right even then, as android would be the biggest and most successful then. Apple is not the biggest and most successful anywhere.

    I would not be surprised if the top selling game is Candy Crush.
