Metrics

Is it playing like we designed it to?

Game metric is where you collect data about the game as people play it and than analyze the data to try to make the gameplay experience better. The three core steps is telemetry, archive and data mining.
  • Telemetry - Is the step that gathers the data from the game and send it to you.
  • Archive - Store the data you have collected.
  • Data mining - Parse it, present it and try to make sense of it.
Opt-Out
Most players do not approve of excessive data collection that run run on the players hardware. There are some basic things that can be done to make them hate you less.
  • Link to a privacy policy that tell the players what is collected, how it will be stored and who it will be shared with.
  • Give players a way to opt-out of all or part of the data collection.
