One of my key roles was maintaining effective communication with the client, ensuring their vision was realized in the final product. This involved understanding their requirements, addressing any concerns or feedback, and providing regular updates on the project's progress.
Another crucial aspect of my role was making critical game flow decisions. I worked closely with the game designers and developers to implement changes and updates, constantly iterating and refining the game's features.
Throughout the project, I utilized my technical expertise in React and leadership skills to ensure the game succeeded. My goal was to create an immersive and interactive experience for users, allowing them to actively participate in the game's world and enjoy a unique and captivating gameplay experience on Facebook.
