How NetEase's mobile PUBG-likes are performing, HQ Trivia eyes $15 million funding, and KamaGames on Facebook Instant Games

Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is one of the biggest games in the world and it's finally arrived on mobile - but NetEase is already first on the market.

Since the Chinese publisher only recently added monetisation to its raft of games adopting the PUBG formula - which were originally released completely free - we decided to check out how well those games are doing on the grossing charts, something which our readers were particularly interested in.

Second on our Hot Five list is a report that the developer behind HQ Trivia is eyeing up a $15 million round of funding to keep growing its business.

Instant Games, influencers and consumer spend

Third up is KamaGames explaining why it's decided to push into Facebook Instant Games and why Pokerist is the first game on its list.

And finally, Pixonic talks about influencer marketing and some of the issues it's faced along the way, and App Annie claims that 950 games generated over $5 million in consumer spend in 2017.
