According to Digi-Capital statistics, the augmented reality market grew to $ 90 billion by the end of 2020. This growth trend is associated with the unusual gameplay experience that can only be obtained using computer vision technology. Virtual reality objects are embedded in the real world and it feels more believable than the standard gaming experience on a smartphone screen. The AR gaming market is considered young now, as few companies are developing in this area. A virgin land for forward-thinking entrepreneurs.

AR game development
In 2019, revenues in the mobile gaming market reached 69 billion US dollars, so the development of mobile augmented reality games to order is becoming more and more relevant and relevant. The industry has grown to the point where it bypasses the combined market for PC and console games in terms of revenue. And this is taking into account the fact that the quality of the gameplay and the plot component on mobile devices is significantly inferior to the console novelties. The explanation is simple – almost everyone has smartphones, unlike a powerful PC or console. By the end of 2020, about a third of the world’s population is playing mobile phones to some extent, which is 2.4 billion people.
The cost of developing games with augmented reality
This is not about buying bread or even making a car – the price of making augmented reality games cannot be reliably predicted in advance, no matter how much we want to do this. Before starting work, we sit down at the negotiating table with the client and discuss the main points in the process of a casual conversation. What turnkey application does the customer want to see: its functionality, interface features, key gameplay mechanics, plot, etc.
As ambition grows, so does the budget. The price of augmented reality games is made up of the following factors:
- technical complexity;
- scope of the project;
- the number of personnel involved and the cost of their services;
To understand what time the implementation of the idea will rise, you need to communicate and write down all the key points. The terms of reference are also formed in the process of communicating with the client – we draw up it based on your requirements and wishes.
We consider two payment options: hourly and for the entire project. We draw up an estimate and a roadmap of the project in order to clearly understand in which direction to move, which technologies to use to achieve the result. This is how we work, and if you want to order the development of AR games, be prepared for the result to exceed any expectations. FlexReality is a team of perfectionists, we strive to bring each product to the ideal.
Examples of AR games from FlexReality
You can familiarize with ready-made projects available for download in the Play Store or in the App Store in the corresponding section “Portfolio”. As an example, we developed a zombie apocalypse-style game for iOS with augmented reality controls. The peculiarity of AR games is that virtual objects naturally fit into the real world and are perceived as an integral part of it. To be honest, this is one of our early projects – a test of the pen, so to speak. And yet, the app received hundreds of positive reviews and generated a bit of buzz among Wylsacom fans.
Another interesting work of our team is a promo character for an IT company. This is a fully animated model capable of dancing and moving through space. It was created for iOS and Android on the Unity engine using 3DS MAX and BLENDER software.
