In this my 2nd post I want to outline what we will be producing along with a rough outline of features.
Their will be 3 distinct parts to this project. The games themselves, The online back-end system for storing game data and the Portal.
To start with at launch of the portal our aim is to have 5 games ready to play, increasing as we have time to develop more but with the aim of releasing 1 game every month once everything is up and running.
The game back-end
This will be a web based back-end to the games to store the players scores, achievements and possibly game saves for more complex games in the future. The back-end will be developed as a standalone system with an API for applications such as the portal or app. versions to retrieve player information.
The intention for the portal is to create a site for the players to visit to play the games on the web, view the overall leader boards and achievements and interact with the other players and us the developers of the games. As this is going to be a big part of the development and probably will impact on what and how we retrieve information from the game back-end system I will be outlining the features for this in more detail in my next post.
