Hypercasual 2.0
Netmarble EMEA

The trends in the market are changing very fast and game companies adapting to these changes always win. When we observe the data of the games staying in the top charts, we see that they usually stay there for a few months until players switch to a better or just a new hyper-casual game. Hypercasual games are consumed very fast due to their simple and uncompetitive nature.

So, publishers have two choices; they need to catch the trends very quickly and publish hypercasual games constantly or publish more complex hypercasual games, which we call hypercasual 2.0 so that success can be more sustainable. I see players' expectations from hypercasual games increase and successful hypercasual gamers will evolve to hypercasual 2.0 by adding some RPG features.
