Thank you for participating our interview Adi. Please tell us a little about yourself.

My name is Adi and I’m the founder of Tiltan Games, a mobile development studio. I’ve been around the Hi-Tech industry for about 15 years, mainly developing, managing teams and products for large companies. I’ve started in 2012 with the idea of making mobile apps and initially wanted to focus on making games that I like to play – dungeon crawlers and action games. Unfortunately I discovered that the barriers in this market were already quite high and you actually need a lot of money to produce high quality games. So I decided to turn to the kids market. Specifically the niche we were targeting is kids in the ages 1-5.We’ve developed so far over 30 titles for both App store and Android stores (Google, Amazon). Since I have complete freedom in what I chose to develop, there are also quite a few titles that also attract adult audience or titles that target the entire family, such as Match Max, Draw Hockey etc. Tiltan Games is a bootstrap startup which means we use our own money to develop and promote our titles.

How did the idea for your app come about?

The focus of this discussion is our new educational program we call My Dino Companion. Its a well structured collection of over 30 activities and mini games aimed to educated pre-school kids in math and logic. The idea behind using a dinosaur came actually from my small child, who was 4 when I started working on my first kid’s app. He’s really into dinosaurs and he suggested that my first kid’s game will have a dinosaur running and getting stuff, so this is what I did – the game is called Run Dino Run. I actually drew that dinosaur myself despite having no real graphical skills. From that point on, I’ve chosen to use that dinosaur as a prominent figure in many of my kids games, so it was only natural that I will use it also for My Dino Companion.
This program offers a wide array of options for parents and schools – you can define a profile for each kid (no limits), you can use the app for general practice or to target specific segments. You can test you kids skills to evaluate his/her current know-how and you can play it for fun using the mini games to influence light learning during play.

5. http://redeem-now.com/05fdc1cacc33

And how long was the process from the original idea to the release of the app?

We have invested a lot of efforts and our own money into this game, which took about 6 months to develop end to end, including comprehensive voice over, new unique sound track and graphics to make the game as appealing as possible to young kids.

Did you hire a developer or do it yourself?

No, I do all development and hire help mostly when art and music are needed.

What has been the hardest obstacle you have had to overcome in the development process?

Development by itself is only the baseline to creating a successful game or app. The even more important aspect is marketing and spreading the news so people will know about your game.
For me, given the high advertising budget required to get people to know you, is the hardest thing to tackle. I do quite a bit of in-app advertising and try to make the brand visible on social channels, but I can’t really compete with funded companies with real marketing budgets. The entry of large kids brands in the past two years has taken a lot of attention from indie studios apps towards the characters and titles kids are familiar with from their favorite TV shows and Toys.

Have you had much support during the development process (from family, peers, Apple Inc.)?

I get a lot of encouragement from family and close friends. Creating a bootstrap start-up with a family you need to provide for is quite a challenge, especially so when you get to the over crowded mobile app space. Sadly, we do not get any support from the stores themselves, which mainly target a few well connected companies and the big brands.

What are your plans for the future? Will you be developing any more apps?

I continue to develop games. This is my passion. Recently I’ve taken a turn back to the family market. My upcoming title called Drapers is a fun multi-player game for the entire family where you compete as one of the great cloth merchants of the Mediterranean during the middle ages. It has lots of great information about the subject of cloth making and its lot of fun to compete over who will become the greatest merchant of its time. Drapers should be out on Apple any day now and I hope I’ll be able to update it and create additional content in that spirit.

What sort of feedback has your app been receiving so far?

My Dino Companion receives great feedback from parents who tried our program and tells me that their kids really love to get their hands on that app. Some report the progress their kids make in various aspects: pattern recognition, improved hand – eye coordination and more. My Dino Companion is one of only a handful of apps on the app store offering such wide array of topics, aligned with US common core program. With its attractive avatar and general appeal, I believe it stands out as a unique offering for parents who wish to enhance their kids math and logic skills in a fun way.

And finally, what advice would you give to anyone considering creating their own app?

I will only suggest people who wish to create their own app as a hobby. The app store is not a place to enter without significant budgets these days and having a great app still does not guarantee success. If you are a developer with some spare time, it can be fun. If not, make sure you have a significant budget at your disposal and don’t expect a return.

Thank you so much for talking with us today and sharing a bit about your company.  We really appreciated the chance to get to know you!

Alison, the American iMum is from Massachusetts. She lives there with her sons and husband. In their spare time, they enjoy playing outside, enjoying nature and of course testing apps and fantastic products on their devices. They have a variety of devices including an iPad, iPhone, and an iPod and is often found with a device! My older son loves technology and loves testing out the “latest and newest” apps and tech. I love sharing information about apps and products with others to help them make decisions without feeling overwhelmed with all of the choices.
