Japanese mobile games revenues grow 35%, how Homescapes monetises, and Fingersoft launches Round Zero

Indie developers in 2017 apparently love opening indie publishing arms, and Hill Climb Racing developer Fingersoft is no exception.

The developer has decided to launch its own data-driven publishing platform Round Zero, which intrigued our readers so much that it became our most read story of last week.

Second on our Hot Five list is our IAP Inspector's investigation into the monetisation of Homescapes, which he found to be simple, but not as interesting as the game's core design.

Third up is a report by App Annie and Dentsu which found that Japanese mobile gaming revenues grew 35% year-on-year in the 12 months ending June 2017, once again surpassing that of the US.

And finally, KamaGames has partnered with Yoozoo to bring its social casino games to India, and Sumo Digital is reportedly looking into a £150 million IPO.
