We are all familiar with the “Jack of all trades” quote, and it means you are an average of everything. You must discover what you are good at and focus only on that area—you could select a few more when you have many audiences soon.

For startups, we advise that you focus on a single field so that you can minimize the expenses such as buying for props or even the in-game purchases to stand out of the rest, which catches audience attention too.

Most importantly, it should be one of the most-watched by gamers. And the list is:
