Game Developer magazine: 8.8% surveyed making games for WP

| May 25, 2012 | 29 Replies

Game Developer magazine released their data from a survey on mobile game development.

I didn’t quite catch the sample size, but it’s of no surprise that coming out on top at 94.6% is iOS, followed not so far behind with 70.7% by Android.

What is a surprise is that the smallest userbase, WP7 comes in at third. A long way away at 8.8%. But that is still more than BB, Symbian and Bada combined.

Blackberry is fourth at 2.7% followed by Symbian at 2% and at the very back is Bada at 1.4%

‘Rapid development time’ is supposedly the most important factor, followed by ‘Flexibility and easy extendability,” “Engine performance,” “Support and documentation,” and “Prior successful use by another team”.
