To any Devs,

I know its pretty late for an indie dev to join the app making industry. I am working with few friends and basically we wanted this to get going. Our game is another idle/clicker game and we thought of doing a cryptocurrency theme. I'm particularly scared that we're not making much downloads. How do you guys find people to download your game?

btw, this is the app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kuronekogames.cryptocapitalist&hl=en

Feel free to check it out and if you have feedback, please feel free to send me a private message. 

Thanks

Hi ryan!
Visually your game looks good from the icons/screenshots.
It is important to test your ideas before making the app: for example, if you search for "bitcoin billionaire"
you get very many results:
https://play.google.com/store/search?q=bitcoin%20billionaire&c=apps&hl=en
- and if a new app comes to compete, it will be competing not with the top but with the bottom apps - so if there are a lot now and the bottom ones have very few downloads, then the idea is risky
- if you are making similar apps to what already exist, there shouldn't yet be too much competition and the competition that does exist must have lots of downloads
- once you do get an app with good downloads, when you make a new game put a link to the new app from your app (I place an icon of the game and the text "new game", which, when you click, directs you to the new game) - Initially I didn't think this was very important/didn't do this, but this allows you to get nice downloads from the app launch and google puts the app higher in the results

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry it took me 14 days to reply to this thread. I'm really learning how to get people to notice the app. 

Thanks a lot!

Another important thing to note is reviews. Always respond to reviews regardless of whether they are positive or negative.

I have the same problem. Seems like it's difficult to get people to download your app
