    I thought about this but wasn't sure if anybody is making money off of this, just creating a simple, yet addicting game. Promoting it on popular flash game sites like miniclip, addicting games, etc. and getting paid through the offers? I'm not sure but if anybody is making money in game design can you tell me? I've messed around with Unity a few times, and UDK once. I'm a total noob but if there is potential than I would love to learn.

    I know some people that are app developers that make a lot of money. There is a lot of money to be made in games if you develop for mobiles. If you create a game for the iPhone, you can make millions. Just take a look at angry birds with billions of downloads. Think about the money they made!

    There are many people who earn a lot of money by designing apps and games. Developing new and addictive apps and games for mobiles are a trend these days and can earn a lot of money for you.

    Several ways to do it:
    - Get game sponsors
    - Put adsense
    - Sell in-game items
    - License games to others

    You can definitely make money doing this but you need investment capital to be able to pay someone
    to make it for you unless you know how to do it yourself. The niche is decently competitive and just because
    you think you have something addicting does not mean it will work out.
