With 2016 come new SOOMLA dashboard features. We’re excited to release our God Mode Analytics plus two new integrations with Facebook and UnityIAP.
God Mode Analytics
Our newest feature in the dashboard lets you discover analytics of other games in the GROW network! You can search for games that are similar to yours and actually see their metrics. You can see other game’s analytics in ranges, however, the game itself remains anonymous. Finding games is easy using our tag-based search. Just start typing in the search bar and select the tags you’d like to search for. You can see the full list of tags in our tags dictionary.
An important part of God Mode Analytics is keeping games anonymous. If, however, you find a game that you are particularly interested in, you can send that game a “Reveal” request. The developer of that game can then approve your request. Once the connection is made, fellow developers can see each others’ studio name, game name and game icon, as well as precise numbers instead of ranges in each others’ analytics. Mutual discovery is time limited, allowing you to explore your friend’s game (given their approval) for one week, one month or a full year.God Mode #Analytics allows you to see data from #games similar to yours and compare performance Click To Tweet
God Mode Analytics coupled with Mutual Discovery opens a whole new opportunity for data-driven game design. With knowledge of what’s working for others, and what your users particularly do in other games, you can enhance and optimize your current game, or build the next one with new insights.
You can also find games that are super successful and decide that your new game will be similar, it’s always good to develop something you know people will like.
GROW for Facebook
If you’re already working with the Facebook SDK for Unity in your game and want to add GROW to start collecting analytics about social events, all you have to do is import the GROW Facebook integration from the Integrations page.
You’ll be directed to a page with the integration steps:
1. Download the package.
2. Import it to your Unity project. 3. Open the GROW settings. 4. Now copy & paste the Game and Environment Keys from the integration page to your project.5. Add the prefabs simply by clicking the button in the panel. And you’re done, just build and run your app to start working with GROW Analytics!
GROW for UnityIAP
If you want to add GROW to your project and you’re already working with UnityIAP the integration is super simple – just like the Facebook integration. Go to the dashboard integrations page and import the UnityIAP for GROW package. From here the steps are exactly like the Facebook integration – fast and simple, enjoy!
As always, if you have any comments, ideas or questions we’d love to hear about them, just drop us a line 🙂
