        Action game for browsers and mobile platforms. The goal of the game is to eat all the dots placed in the maze while avoiding the enemies. There is the possibility of playing in multiplayer.

        Features:

        • Each player has three abilities that he chooses before the match, which have a different effect on opponents, the environment, or himself.

        • Possibility to choose characters. Each character has unique effects, voice acting, sounds, and ability bonuses.

        • Multiplayer with a room system that supports up to 10 people. An anti-cheat system has been implemented by monitoring the game by the server.

        • Possibility of competitive play with other players.

        • Saving match results in the database.

        • Each character has a degree of rarity that affects bonuses.

        3. Unity Burst and Unity Collections - bone animation performance improvement

        4. A* Pro pathfinding - a pathfinding system for Unity game development, based on the A* algorithm, which provides a fast and efficient way to calculate optimal paths in complex game environments. It is designed to handle large, open-world environments with multiple obstacles and dynamic obstacles, while maintaining a high level of performance.

        5. TextMeshPro - an asset for displaying text, differs from the standard asset for text with improved performance and new features.

        6. ExternalDependancyManager - tool for managing external dependencies in Unity projects. It is a package manager that allows developers to easily add, update, and remove third-party libraries, frameworks, and other dependencies to their Unity projects.


        In Pack Mate, the main character is a brave boy who runs across various levels and fights the monsters he encounters. The game is set in a spooky and eerie environment, which adds to the overall thrill of the game. The game mechanics include collecting power-ups, health packs, and weapons, which the player can use to defeat the monsters.

        The development team for Pack Mate included a Unity/C# Developer, Tester, Game/Lvl Designer, 2D Designer, Sound Designer, and Backend Developer. The team worked together seamlessly to ensure that the game was delivered on time and with the highest quality.

        The 2D Designer created amazing visuals that captured the spooky ambiance of the game, while the Sound Designer created eerie and thrilling sounds that heightened the overall gaming experience. The Game/Lvl Designer designed various levels, each with its own set of challenges, puzzles, and monsters.

        The Unity/C# Developer and Backend Developer worked together to ensure that the game mechanics were smooth and glitch-free, while the Tester was responsible for testing the game thoroughly to ensure that it was bug-free and provided an excellent user experience.

        Despite the tight deadline of two months, the team did a fantastic job, and our client was very satisfied with the end product.

          Project description:

          Hoax is a 3D platformer with unique gameplay for both single and multiplayer. It features pulling and hooking mechanics to walls or enemies, as well as melee and ranged combat, providing an engaging gameplay experience.


          Technically, we implemented a vertical slice of the game by focusing on mechanics built on primitives. This allowed us to build the gameplay quickly and efficiently, as well as ensure it was scalable and ready for development. The main purpose of the vertical slice was to demonstrate the core game mechanics and establish a stable foundation for further development of the project along with feedback and suggestions from the player community.





            Technical features of the project


            Hoax
            The prototype of the game with advanced combat logic is designed in the style of a 3D platformer with RPG elements. In the process of developing this game, a flexible control system, custom physics, and a combat system were created, which includes:

            • Hook grip;

            • Ranged and melee attack system;

            • Enhanced attack;

            • Rock-Paper-Scissors system.

            AI enemy logic and online duels between the two games were also created.

            Features:

            • Non-standard system of movement - this system was developed taking into account the rules of the game allowing you to move along the 4 axes, similar to a chessboard while ensuring a clear fixation of each game model for a particular cell;

            • Control system - a system that allows you to adapt control for Android, iOS, WebGL;

            • Custom physics:

              • Adjustable gravity level;

              • Collision system - a custom collision system that allows you to customize the aspect of the interaction of game objects with each other, adding the desired level of contact and repulsion force;

              • Hook capture system - a system that allows you to interact with such game objects (enemies, walls, or projectiles) and be attracted to those objects.

            • The Rock-Paper-Scissors system is a system in which the player can counterattack an enemy's attack with his own attack. For example: When one player throws a hook, the second player can attack this hook and it will go back to the first player and deal damage to him;

            • AI logic Consists of several stages:

              • Expectation;

              • Movement;

              • Attack;

              • Maneuver.

            • Custom shader - the shader is written to implement the ability to display players when they are out of view. Allows you to display the player model with a certain radius while hiding the environment models.

            Technology stack:
