David Guo (also known as Yaoqi Guo), the CEO of Top Games Inc., is a visionary entrepreneur who knows how to seize opportunities. “Opportunities come to those who are prepared,” David asserts. He identified the mobile gaming trend in the mid-2010s and took action. Top Games launched a platform with lifelike graphics and zero lag. This leap in technology, along with the soaring success of their flagship game Evony, catapulted Top Games into a new realm of success and significantly increased annual revenue.
Top Games Inc. has adopted “Collaboration” as a strategy. Last year, Evony collaborated with film and television IP Kong to introduce the Skull Island event. The campaign allowed players to earn exclusive gifts by purchasing Gems and upgrading their defenses against creatures from Skull Island. “We'll keep focusing on co-branding that enriches gameplay,” David assures. The strategy paves the way for incorporating more movie and TV IPs, surprising players, and adding value to the gaming experience.
A Data-Driven Approach
For David Guo, data science is more than a buzzword; it's an integral part of team management and game development. He stresses its role in understanding player behavior, making informed decisions, and swiftly resolving issues. “I firmly believe every TGI employee should testify quickly and implement even faster,” David said. Data informs not just the design but also the quick and effective scaling of games like Evony, which has delighted users across the globe.
A Focus on Player Experience
The gaming industry is fiercely competitive. For veterans like David, with over two decades of experience, the keys to standing out are simple: follow trends, prioritize player experience, and operate efficiently. “There's no shortcut to immediate success,” he notes. The focus remains on continually enhancing the player's journey by delivering on all elements that pique their curiosity. This balance is what enables Top Games to “bring more enjoyment and surprises to the game.”
The Road Ahead
As Top Games continues to thrive, the vision set forth by David serves as a guiding light. The company aims to not just meet but exceed player expectations, thereby setting the stage for future triumphs. With David at the helm, Top Games is set to continue its journey of innovation, collaboration, and most importantly, bringing more enjoyment and surprises to the gaming world.
By adopting a visionary, strategic, data-driven, and player-focused approach, David Guo and Top Games Inc. are not just following trends—they are setting them. And in doing so, they provide a playbook for how to excel in today's dynamic gaming landscape.
