Default Any money in desktop sites still?

Hi,

As we have html games and flash games and also responsive themes in market to cater to mobile side as well, can any one who is still in the market, suggest me if this is still good enough market to make decent money ?

Also just want to know what is best script and template for html5 games and their feeds ...

Yo CheekuGames,
Long time no see buddy. As for you're question, I'd say there is plenty of cash still to be made in this sector dude. There's plenty of ways to make money from whatever content you choose to provide too.

Just experiment and find out for yourself.

Regards,
Antz

Hey, yeah.I would say there's still money in arcades.
It just depends if that money is worth your time. It's certainly harder than it was before tomake a profitable arcade but then again there's also less competition than before.

You just need to come up with some new and unique solutions to the new problems and try to avoid all the new issues of certain games not working in certain browsers, 100% need a mobile site version or compatible site. Additional revenue streams are also certainly required.

It's something I'm thinking of trying too, if I do go ahead I will be sitting down and coming up with a custom solution for a truly modern arcade, after a lot of research.

Cheeku
I've tryed out MyArcadePlugin and it's simply built apon the Wordpress foundation, For me it's a tad bloated, I feel the better choice sadly is AvArcade due to it's simplity and ablity with modding and themes, FYI it's template system is abit of a headaked to get used to but it's doable.

That's my prospective anyway, feel free to try both.

Regards,
Antz

Default Nowadays

Playing a little bit with what was said: There is less competition, but with bigger and more developed arcades that provide the players what they need. It might be a matter of figuring out what the niche is lacking. Difficult task, yet not impossible.
Compatibility is one of the bases now, especially for new websites. No longer simply finding games and adding them. Gotta select the responsive ones.
