iOS Game Developer Profile: Tiger Style and Hatch
In This Chapter
- Learning from the style of Tiger Style: Innovative iOS games made with a Hollywood studio model
- Preparing to hatch: Lessons learned from designing a virtual pet iOS game
Now that you’ve surveyed the iOS gaming market and learned some basic design principles, it’s time to spotlight two case studies. The first is Tiger Style, a successful iOS game studio run by veteran designers originally from the traditional game industry. The second is Phill Ryu of Impending, a relative design newcomer who has spent several years and more than $250,000 trying to succeed with an innovative new game that could (in my view) become the next Angry Birds-level hit.
