How Derivatives Works in Hyper Casual Industry

What to Change?

Make sure either “Theme” or “Mechanic” is different in our version.

If the theme stays the same, please change the following items in the game;

  • Camera angle
  • Environment layout
  • Animations

What to Keep?

Do not change the sub-genre, for example; if the original game is a simulation, derivative should be simulation as well.
