Listen to your users, they know what they want

While developing Puzzle Frenzy, I took tons of wrong decision. On multiple occasions I assumed what my game players want and I implemented several features which were never used, or used by very few users.

However, over time I started to listen to what the users were asking for. By putting together all the communication channels I was able to come up with totally different features that I originally had in mind. And guess what?! by implementing those features suddenly I got more user engagement, better ratings and more downloads.

Being an game or app developer is not easy and surely poses a lot of challenges. For me, one of the biggest problem was that I was putting my judgement ahead of my users feature requests.

I soon as I realized that 50.000 voices are stronger than 1 (my own) the game development started to flourish.

For anyone out there interested in satisfying their users I have one golden advice:

Listen to your users, they know what they want!
