SGC Accessibility Assessment
While review scores and perceived game quality are frequently used to help forecast game sales, they are often very unreliable and too many games defy rules that regression and other quantitative analyses would dictate. The one true forecaster of game sales that has no historically good measure is accessibility.

Accessibility is the likelihood of a consumer enjoying a game. This means that a game must penetrate all the layers of consumer and market activities that keep a game from being purchased and enjoyed. Games with higher accessibility sell more than games with lower accessibility. While this definition is simple on the surface, it is highly complex metric composed of many qualitative, technological and creative factors both internal and external to the game itself that vary by genre, platform, brand and even release window. In other words:

Assessing a game's accessibility is both an art and science.

Strategic Game Consulting can help you find your game's true accessibility factors and create a plan to maximize them with an SGC Accessibility Assessment.

Here's what you can expect from the typical SGC Accessibility Assessment:
  • Forward looking Genre / Category analysis and competitive landscape overview of future game releases
  • Analysis of how your game's story, gameplay and presentation will impact its accessibility
  • Specific recommendations to increase accessibility (and thus sales)

Product and Team Alignment Facilitation
  • How do you have that tough conversation with your developer?
  • What if your publisher "just doesn't get it?"
  • How can you help the marketing director and creative director see eye to eye?
  • What if the programmers are headed in the complete opposite direction of the designers?
  • The agency isn't delivering. Are they to blame or are we not being clear? How do we fix it?
How do you truly get different stakeholders on the same page so you can all come in for the big win?

Consider the hidden costs of not being aligned. How much rework, false starts, direction changes and iterations can your budget allow for? With ever increasing development and marketing costs you cannot afford for your key stakeholders and team members to be misaligned.

Sometimes it takes a little outside help to get everyone on the same page and executing like the true high performers you know they can be. Product and Team Alignment Facilitation will help you take your performance and results to the next level.
