Why New Mobile Games Are On The Rise

Why Are New Mobile Games Are On Rise? 

The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled billions of people around the world to stay indoors. What can possibly be done staying at home for a long duration? Well, the answer is trying out new mobile games.

Surveys Showing Rise In New Mobile Games Users

At present, the impact of the video game industry on the youth has gained popularity. New mobile games have become a pastime; resulting in an increase in the amount of time they are played. 

According to the American Wireless Network Operator ‘Verizon’, overall new mobile video game internet traffic has increased 75% since the pandemic. 

Another mobile video game developer Bungie reported that average daily user engagement on their game ‘Destiny 2’ has risen globally from 10% to 20% in the markets most affected by the coronavirus.

As of now, mobile gaming is becoming a large industry, beating console and PC gaming. Because smartphones are more prevalent to use, there are no chances of new mobile gaming slowing down shortly.

With the development of new mobile games, players have to gain access to a huge variety of games on their mobile devices. Multiplayer games such as Fortnite and solo games such as Candy Crush Saga are the two most popular examples of today’s mobile gaming possibilities.

Besides these traditional games, betting on casino games has also gained popularity. The development of innumerable new and great online casino sites such as the Lucky Days Casino is now easily available on mobile devices.

3 Reasons Mobile Gaming Is So Popular Now A Days 

  • Technological Advancements

Ever-improving technology within mobile devices is apparently the main reason behind the rise of the mobile gaming industry. With “better technology” comes an extensive range of different areas where improvements have led to a better mobile gaming experience.

For example, the processing criteria of today’s smartphones offer game developers a platform to develop better and more graphically intense games that offer players more captivating experiences.

Also, the rise in internet speed has added to the smoothness of new mobile games. Today, gamers can enjoy multiplayer games such as ‘Fortnite’, on mobile phones which can also be played with players across multiple platforms.

  • Cost-effective, convenient gaming

New mobile games are much less expensive in comparison to PC or console games. Generally, mobile games cost a few dollars or many games are even free to play. Cheaper and convenient features attract players to try out large numbers of games and acquire a huge library in their pocket.

New mobile games have improved graphics, unique game size, and an amazing overall gameplay experience. Why would players/gamers not stick to such gaming platforms!

  • Social gaming

Games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds allow versatile players to play against each other in real-time. New mobile games can be integrated with the different social platforms players are already using on their smartphones. Thus, many games can be shared directly with gamer’s friends on social media.

The sharing of games’ scores adds a new social element to the games, adding a sense of both team spirit and competition. Climbing up leaderboards socially has made mobile gaming a bit more popular both within the game itself and on social media, thus increasing the overall visibility of the game.

Fake Job Interviews On LinkedIn

As the number of people searching for jobs increases, especially during COVID, unfortunately so does the number of scammers. Every once in a while, we will receive an email from someone who has mentioned they have applied for a job position at Tatum Games via Linkedin. This is very perplexing because Tatum Games has never posted any jobs on Linkedin. This does not mean that we never will use Linkedin, it’s just that we currently opt to use alternative methods to recruit talent. Today, to work for Tatum Games you will have to apply directly on our site at https://tatumgames.com/careers/ or via job postings on Indeed. We have never used Linkedin or any other job recruitment platform outside of Indeed.

With scams on the rise, it’s important to be able to tell a fake job posting from a real one.

Why Do These Fake Postings Even Exist?
Before we get into how to spot a fake job posting, let’s discuss why they exist in the first place. There are a few reasons fake job postings exist.

1. Resume and Information Gathering – These scammers are collecting emails and other personal information. Personal data is valuable, and they will use your resume and job applications to get information such as your email, name, address, social security number and other valuable information.
2. Spammers – These scammers oftentimes will collect your email address then turn around and sell it to other people or organizations.
3. Long Game – As they go through their fake job interviews, they will eventually ask you for banking information or even upfront payment.

 

What To Look Out For?
Job posting scams are easy to get caught up in because the scammers will advertise jobs the same way legitimate employers do – online (in ads, on job sites, and social media), in newspapers, and sometimes on TV and radio. They promise you a job, but what they want is your money and your personal information.

But do not fret, there are some common signs that a job isn’t real.
1. The contact can’t be found in a Google search.
2. No company information listed.
3. Grammatical errors and spelling mistakes in the job posting, followup emails, or other direct messages.
4. Money is involved.
5. Personal information is required beyond the scope of a standard job application or agreement.

  1. Sounds too good to be true.

    In the cases where scammers pretended to be staff from Tatum Games, they were using email addresses from gmail. All legitimate Tatum Games employees have the email format, <first name>.<last name>@tatumgames.com. For example, leonard.tatum@tatumgames.com. If you do not see the @tatumgames.com domain, the email is not coming from a legitimate Tatum Games source and is most likely a scammer. Report them and block their contact information immediately. Stay safe out there and remember to check our careers page frequently for any available positions. Happy job-hunting!
