Game development.


The project had numerous non-standard tasks. Two chapters of the game had already been realized, so it was required to implement the third one. Therefore, it was important to preserve the functionality of the previous chapters, as all the chapters had to have elements based on a common logic.

Development Process

The project was created on the Unity game engine using the C# language. We developed a unique design for the entire game and added gameplay mechanics for maximum player engagement. We adopted the approach of creating the core game logic by using external documents. These documents are converted into runnable scripts and form a complete game.

We also utilized the following technologies and tools:

  • Asset Bundles,
  • Animators,
  • WebGL Templates,
  • Moulinator,
  • XML Formatter,
  • NGUI,
  • SCORM.


As a result, the customer got an exciting detective story game that was rated 4.5 stars on Google Play and was downloaded 60,000+ times.
