Here in the West, we are so used to seeing games like Candy Crush, Crossy Road and Clash of Clans topping the charts that it’s easy to assume that the mobile games market is dominated by Western publishers.
In fact, the Chinese mobile games market makes up a quarter of the $99.6 BILLION that will be spent on mobile games in 2016. But if that’s the case, how come there are so few Chinese gaming brands finding success outside their home market?
The reality is that a big proportion of Chinese publishers are spending thousands of dollars on unsuccessful launches – literally throwing money down the drain. Time and time again they make the same mistakes, meaning lots of time and money gets wasted, and download numbers fail to meet expectations.

So for developers and publishers who are serious about succeeding outside of China we’ve collected the lessons we’ve learnt over many years of mobile game launches.
