about this course

From Yodo1 CEO and co-founder Henry Fong, the serial entrepreneur and game guru behind global hits such as Crossy Road and Rodeo Stampede, comes the first-of-its-kind guide to gaming industry success—and the secrets to making money with mobile games every developer should know. 

With 151 billion dollars in revenue for 2019, the gaming industry has already tripled Hollywood in size.


Surprisingly enough, though there are plenty of courses out there on how to develop mobile games, nobody is teaching developers how to turn those games into successful businesses.


That’s why we created this course.


In two hours, you will learn the keys to success for game marketing, user acquisition, monetization, community management, and more. 


Join today to find your success in the fascinating world of mobile games!
