This is the first update for the World Hockey championships.
I have been working on the design phase of the game for over a year now. A month ago, we started the programming part. Starting with game design, the graphic design last year and building a framework for my vision of this game.
The challenge was to find good programming partners who can make our vision come to life. About a month ago, we added a team of programmers who have done a fantastic job so far. Right now we are a team of 7 (3 programmers, 2 graphic designers, 2 business/marketing/game designers). I am guessing we have put 2,000 hours in so far and got another 5,000 hours until its completed next year. Wish us luck.
The goal of this game is for people who want to spend a few moments shooting puck and have a fun, real-time experience. The average gamer has changed, they don’t sit and play for hours, they play for minutes. They don’t need a deep level of sports. You don’t need to know the players or build a team. Play for a minute or keep playing for an hour. As you get better, play for more coins against people who are at your level around the world. The real-time experience makes it more fun or you can also choose to play offline.
Now you know the vision and background on how we got here, let me show you what we have done so far. We are working from the outside in, starting on the menu, login, etc.
The splash screen when you enter the game has some cool moving lights while the user waits to connect.
You can see that there are two game modes – one on one OR tournament. You can play real time against other people. We have also added other features to make the game more fun including coins, bucks, mini games, missions, etc…more on those as we develop.
The first of the two games plays in one on one. You can play in real time against another person. If no one is available, you can play against the computer. You choose the amount of coins
The second game mode is playing in a tournament style. Where the player can play against other players.
The game will have daily missions to earn coins. There are also 3 ongoing missions at all times and life time achievements like win 10 games.
Stay tuned. I will keep posting as we progress in our development of this game. If you have any suggestions, please reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
