Anyone noticing higher Chartboost eCPMs this week? Well, for one, summer is in session so kids from across the country are playing more games, longer. I can only assume big developers are pouring money into the market even crazier than before.
I hope you all have tons of games in the queue! I know I do. Just picked up a pack from Carter Thompson that should prove fruitful if any of the stats he shared are even remotely close. Very much looking forward to diving into the new codes.
Anyway, I’ve also noticed a few war games paying very high eCPMs for a few of my games. Those games have had steady downloads over the past several months so I’m sure they were big fish. Saw two downloads yesterday bring in $10 per download. Dang! If only that happened for every install I sent someone!
I’ve been wanting to do a revenue report for some time now. Why I haven’t? Well, I’m not a big sharer of sensitive information. Welp, that’s about to change. I’ve recently made a goal to retire early. I’m 34 and need to get the passive income amped up and rolling in. To-date, I’ve been passive about my passive income, but I’ve been reading, researching, listening and just all around crushing it when it comes to putting knowledge into my brain.

Game Insight, creator of Airport City, has released its Victorian exploration-style economic strategy game Transport Empire for iPad.
Transport Empire is a new take on economic strategy games that lets players build their own industrial empire inspired by the Victorian Era. Players will build massive fleets of locomotives, steamboats, and airships to create a vast transport network, while also building a rich resource portfolio with mines, farms, and logging sites to develop local industry. In addition to construction and logistics, Transport Empire also offers an engaging story complete with a cast of unforgettable characters — each with their own unique story to tell — along with mysteries to solve, long-lost treasures to unearth, and even a quest to track down a legendary phantom train.
Transport Empire offers a broad range of transportation for players to manage. Players can commission five different types of locomotives that can be used either as freight or passenger trains, and can further customize each train with more than a dozen types of wagons and coaches. Players can also develop their transportation network across land, sea, and air with multiple classes of steamboats and airships to deliver cargo and travelers to faraway destinations.
