Expanding from the IOS Platform
For years we where tied to one platform, the Apple Platform. We really enjoy publishing here, but its important for us to continue having fun and that requires us to expand! First we break into the other mobile platforms.. after that we are aiming for the stars... more information to come on that soon!
What we looked into
When we wanted to expand, the first thing looked at where the unity projects.. Unity lets you produce different packages because its a game engine! That was the easiest start. MNARH was targeted as the test app, so we packaged it up as an APK and began exploring the Google Play Console.
Learning a new dashboard was.. interesting to say the least! Just trust us here when we say, Apple's AppStore Connect has the most user friendly layout. After this was taken care of, the amazon app-store was suggested! If you didn't know, the amazon app-store takes APK as its file type.
Within 2 hours we where on new platforms making our debut! The one thing we hope you take away from this blog post is this.. Anything is possible with a little bit of effort behind it!
The Rise Collection name, was not the origin of the rise "movement" if you will call it that. Rise Studios was the first name to come up back in 2014 when the IOS development kicked off officially starting our IOS Portfolio.
Rise Studios, started off as a rapid-development style studio.. constantly testing out new fun ideas and seeing what works / what will not. The first application published was AOTC . This game was made in a game engine called Game Salad.
Rise Studios, started the drive to create a brand.. a bigger business representing the software development projects we want to take on in the best way possible. After the Rise Studios portfolio was at a good place, we decide to create other digital divisions.. In came Rise Customs, and Rise World.. then The Rise Collection organized them all. The brand image is based around The Rise Collection and the holdings they have (just mentioned).
