Developer interviews

Interview with Primadawn, Creator of Lazy Snakes

Lazy Snakes is a puzzle game for Android that has been featured in the Google Play App Store and had millions of installs around the world. It was also one of the first Android games to use the In-App Purchase in them. Primadawn just released a new version of the game and we thought it will be a great opportunity to ask them a few questions about it. 

SOOMLA:

What inspired you to make this game? How did you develop the idea?

Primadawn:

Google made it easy for indie developers with Android and I thought it would be fun to develop a game together with my brother (who’s an animator). I always liked both puzzle and action games and I wanted to develop a game that combines both.

SOOMLA:

What was the biggest surprise or amusing thing that happened since you started doing this?

Primadawn:

I’d have to say that the biggest surprise was getting featured in Google Play, although totally justified ;-)

SOOMLA:

Which technologies have you tried to boost game development. What was the biggest good surprise? which one disappointed you?

Primadawn:

Not really disappointed but a bit frustrated at how hard it is to monetize.

SOOMLA:

How did you decide to use an In-App Purchase store in your game? Have you tried other monetization methods?

Primadawn:

I’ve tried all sorts of ad networks but wasn’t really impressed with their performance and it looks like In-App Purchase is the way to go, especially if it’s integrated well into the gameplay.

SOOMLA:

Being a puzzle game, how did you make sure lazy snakes was hard enough but not too hard?

Primadawn:

That’s really the million dollar question, I gave it to friends to test and adjusted it, but I still think we’ve made the levels a bit too hard. (to be rectify in the next game)

SOOMLA:

What other games can we expect to see coming Primadawn?

Primadawn:

We are currently working on a new member of the Lazy Snakes family that I hope will be released in 2-3 months.
