In a previous post we discussed the shift towards IP based games and mentioned that there are some opportunities for smaller studios to leverage some free IP if they stay alert and move quickly. Politics is one area that provides free IP and especially this is true in an election year. Donald Trump, however, brought this to new levels. Never have a candidate generate so many scandals and gained such a big portion of the media time. For game studios, Trump is the gift that keeps giving. At least until the elections. We collected the 10 most popular Donald Trump games from the app stores and are presenting them here.
From a commercial perspective, we don’t have full data on these Donald Trump games but at least the first three should be doing well based on the number of ratings they received. My bet is that the Trump vs. Hillary slots game is the best one in terms of monetization. Slots normally do well in terms of monetization but this one specifically was made by Super Lucky based on their existing Obama Slots game which indicates previous success with this IP recipe.
