We are introducing dynamic feature based demographics to the service. Compared to demographics data gathered from panels there are clear benefits. GameRefinery’s demographics data is dynamic which makes it possible to model the demographic appeal of any mobile game. This both widens the scope of the data and creates the possibility of modeling the demographic fit of prototypes. With features as the foundation of the data, it is also possible to see the appeal of specific features for distinct demographics.
Demographics data is available in different sections of Market Explorer:
