September 2020 Product Update: Analyst Overview & Comments to summarize everything you need to know!

One of the best parts of developing GameRefinery as a service is the constant feedback and suggestions we hear from you, our users. This feedback helps our development tremendously develop new ways to make the data more accessible and understandable for everyone!

One recurring piece of feedback has been about quickly summarizing the game’s core information, mechanics, and importantly monetization, and secondly, to also summarize the updates of the game. These become even more important if we would like to take a closer look at Chinese games that are not accessible due to VPN issues or language barriers.

To help our users, we are happy to announce the introduction of Analyst Overview & comments! 

When our analyst team members add new games or update old ones, they share their key takes on that specific game! 

Check out our featured game’s SpongeBob: Krusty Cook-offs Analyst Overview!

The Analyst Overview helps you to summarize specific games quickly:

  • Genre & style
  • Features & progression
  • Monetization
  • Special notes  

Our goal is to begin introducing Analysts Overviews first to all top-grossing and interesting games.

Naturally, as time goes by, the total amount of Overviews will increase! 

These comments are for all the markets we currently cover, so if you have access to Chinese or Japanese markets you can expect to see comments there too!

Analyst Comments summarize everything you need to know about the specific update added to a game!

Analyst Comments help you quickly digest if a specific update had an event, how the new feature feels, or anything that our analysts consider important for you to know! When we write Analyst Comments, we focus on highlighting if anything new and specifically interesting was added to the game

This gives an entirely new dimension to your browsing and learning experience in Daily Insights when you keep up with what’s happening in the market!
