Looking at past popular Disney games what comes to mind? I think of Aladdin on the Genesis and SNES and DuckTales on the NES. Even though these are old games the quality they had can still be enjoyed today. Instead of focusing on big budget games, Disney should work on smaller downloadable experiences in the style of these classic games.
One game that successfully did this was Renegade Kid's Mutant Mudds. A retro style game, that oozes quality and sold well. With Disney Interactive being the least profitable branch of The Walt Disney Company the last thing they should be doing is spending a lot of money. Instead if they focused on smaller development teams on smaller games, they could have more releases and gain much more profit due to a low investment in each game.
|It looks great, but will it sell well?|
To keep big retailers pleased like GameStop it still is important that retail releases happen, and that could be a possibility with small download games being collected into collections that can be at budget prices.
What do you think of my ideas? Do you think Disney Interactive should do something different? Leave a comment and let me know.
