One of our associates decided to build a website for a bit of fun and this post takes a look at the website to see how it is performing.
For those who don’t know, and I’m in that category, PewDiePie Tuber Simulator is a game built by Outerminds with PewDiePie based on the success of PewDiePie’s YouTube popularity. PewDiePie is, if not the most, a very popular YouTube star. He has built his success by reviewing games and now he is producing his own.
As of October 2016, PewDiePie took claim to the most “subscribed to” user on YouTube with over 13.5 billion video views. That’s incredible. He’s basically one of the biggest internet stars in the world (if you’re in those interests!). Based on his popularity, what could be a better marketing ploy than creating a game about his success – Tuber Simulator.
PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator game is a simulation game about becoming a YouTube star, just like PewDiePie of course, and gives the common person like you and I an opportunity to experience similar success. The objective of the game is to become YouTube’s biggest hit, even overtaking PewDiePie. This is achieved by making videos in the game with the goal of getting as many views and subscribers as possible. There are many different ways to achieve this including the games’ own currency called “Bux”. There are lots of hidden gems in the game and there are tactics that can be employed to help ones success.
Our friend’s website, PewDiePieTuberSimulator.net is dedicated to writing informative articles about the game. It provides hints and tips on how to get started; the site being for beginners and advanced users alike. The site is modest and the articles are written simply so that the reader can easily get the information they are after. There is nothing complex about this site – navigation is very easy and the site is not overly populated with fancy graphics and pictures.
Once or twice a week a new blog post is added to the site and discusses the latest gameplay and features. Outerminds occasionally push out updates to the game and it’s good to know what the latest updates have install for the player.
It’s worth keeping in mind that this game when released hit the top of charts within hours. The game is available for both Android and iOS devices. Within 3 weeks of release last October (2016), the game had seen over 5 million installs. It has a following within it’s niche and is very popular with the youngsters.
The website also provides information about where to get the game, download information and in-app purchases. It features a FAQ page that gives enthusiasts a quick option to get information they are searching for. Also the site provides a Contact Us page which gives visitors an option to send in any questions about the game they might have.
Lots of game screenshots are included with each blog post that help guide the visitor in their quest for success. The site is also complimented with social media sites such as a Facebook page, and a Google+ page.
I had never heard of PewDiePie and once I mentioned him to my 14 year old son, he had no trouble in enlightening me on this very popular YouTube star. You learn something new everyday.
