I guess, one of the most popular genres now is auto-chess. Basically, it's about assembling a team of heroes which automatically battle on your behalf with armies of other players.

Everybody and their brother is developing a roguelike with its own unique twist or two. Will the market become saturated with roguelikes? Let's find out!

developing games chasing trends that you don't even understand in an attempt to make a living sounds like a shit existence and you should probably think about other ways to spend your finite time on earth

I see a fair amount of management and RTS games getting popular.
Variants on crafting games are everywhere.

But yeah, chasing trends means you'll be behind the curve most of the time.

As a counterpoint, developing games with no foot in the world of business and without a sense of what's popular and what's not can mean coming from a place of weakness.

One of the great things about the era of SteamSpy was the democratization of knowledge it gave as to how different types of games were selling in the open market. Almost every serious developer I know used it as a resource for market research during every phase of development.

looking at sales graphs without understanding the drivers and without the talents to actually contribute to the genre makes you a cargo cultist.
if your goal is to exploit the same patterns in low information buyers alright cool don't forget to invest a lot in mistakable but legally distinct thumbnails

Re trends vs making what you want: One of your boys Paul Eres said that to understand indie games you must understand every aspect of the universe, or something like that.

Everyone has different processes, but deep inside we're all the same:

The OP is too generic, what do you mean by "online game"? Multiplayer or that can be played on a web browser?

I find there are a lot of .io games, eg., slither.io, agar.io, diep.io

These games are multiplayer browser games.

They can be fun!

heh first reply. We're making something kiiinddaaa in a similar vein, tho it's closer to What the Golf than Goose and, in my defense, I came up with the idea before I even knew Goose was a thing :p
