I wanted to tell you about my first game and a little about how I came to this life.
So, in the spring, in the midst of quarantine, I decided to quit my job, despite the advice to postpone. The labor market was rather sluggish, I have long wanted to try to do something of my own, and, after some thought, settled on a mobile game, as the most easily implemented option.
After 10 days I finished the “C # Survival Guide” course on Unity Learning (If interested, here's the link, recently the whole resource became free :), and got down to business. The idea has been on my mind for quite some time, the implementation remained. The basic gameplay took about a couple of weeks, the UI design was about the same, but the integration of all kinds of infrastructure (cloud saves, advertising with mediation, in-game purchases), coupled with the occasional rampant procrastination, significantly shifted my schedule. In total, development took about six months, although the game probably looks like it was put together over the weekend. My excuse is that this is new to me, and this is generally my first real experience in programming and other stages of development, I did not work in IT before.
The backstory is over, let me introduce the game itself: 8 is a dynamic math puzzle in which the player's task is to choose an answer option in a limited time that will lead a given number to 8. So, for example, the number 0 is given, the correct option is “+8”. The questions are endless, generated on the go and get more difficult as the game progresses. After a certain stage, two-stage questions begin to appear, in which you need to use two options, or the same one twice. Example - the same 0 is given, to bring to 8 you need to select “+4”, then “× 2”.
Bonuses can also be used during the game. They are activated by swiping inside the circular timer zone and cost one token (in-game currency), you can only use one per question. Swipe to the right removes two incorrect answers, up - replenishes half the time, to the left cancels the first selected answer in a two-step question.
The number 8 is also a part of the game, not only in its name: the minimum number of points for a correct answer is 8, the icon of tokens is an octagon, the answer is given 8 seconds (as the time increases), the number of questions which need to be answered to increase the difficulty level - also 8 (it can be shortened by answering quickly enough and without errors), the smallest available pack of tokens consists of 8, the cost of one topic is 8 tokens, etc.
Another game mechanic I have implemented is daily quests. As already mentioned, 8 has an in-game currency, and tasks are a way to get it for free. Every day you can complete three tasks, they are chosen randomly, each is more difficult than the previous one, and you can also simplify / complete the task by watching an advertisement. Also, up to three tokens can be obtained by sharing your result, leaving a review in stores and visiting my Facebook page using the in-game buttons next to which an octagonal notification icon is displayed.
