Principle 10: There’s No Magic Formula for Success

Keep in mind that no one individual or company of any size has discovered the formula for what makes a successful product. Like film, art, and music, games appeal to a variety of consumer tastes, and of course taste is subjective.

Some developers of past hits have credited their success to the underlying technology that their game used. Other developers claim that their game transports the player into a surreal and immersive universe. Yet others feel their game’s success is due to the way it engrosses the player in a realistic simulation and challenges them with its compelling design. Behind each successful title is a unique list of traits that made it popular with consumers.

The bottom line is simple. A well-designed product based on a team effort with a simple, user-friendly interface developed within a reasonable time frame will be successful.
