Please describe your company and your position there.

We are a company developing and publishing mobile games on Google Play and App Store.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Whimsy Software?

What were your goals for this project?

We had 4 Unity word game templates and we needed so merge them into one single application.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them through upwork.com and we worked together on a few very small projects. The level of professionalism and knowledge convinced us to hide them for bigger projects.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They received the 4 word game templates, refactored code and merged all the templates into a single one to use common items like coins, awards and progress. Additionally, they added extra functionalities like leaderboards, achievements, ads and in app purchases.

What was the team composition?

We worked with only one person responsible with all the coding.

We communicated on Skype every day. Every feedback we sent was discussed and sometimes we decided together on different features, based on the benefits those features would have to our game and potential users.

The level of professionalism was very high. They came with pretty innovative ideas on how to implement some features.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We run a Southeast Asia based emerging technology venture builder and are currently focusing on a blockchain-based gaming venture. I am technical project manager and engineer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Whimsy Software?

Whimsy Software was hired for frontend mobile game development and integration of a novel blockchain-based backend logic.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals were a functioning MVP of a fully on-chain mobile blockchain game. As this has not been achieved before, it can be classed as proof-of-concept R&D project. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Whimsy Software was chosen due to good reviews, job success score on Upwork, previous work experience and fair pricing. 

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We provided the team with a blockchain backend C# wrapper for Unity which had to be integrated and utilized with the frontend of the game. For the frontend, the team was responsible for development of game animations, GUI functionality, data processing/storage and in general the connection between blockchain backend and corresponding frontend input/output. 

One challenge here was that this blockchain approach/framework is a completely new technology which required the team to leave behind existing backend solutions and study/understand and utilize the new concept. The team showed excellent grasp of blockchain technology from the start and was able to adapt quickly to the new technology and environment.

Additionally, Whimsy Software provided us with excellent UI artists and has proven to be highly responsive to design guidance from our game designer. 

What was the team composition?

The team was composed of a project manager, Unity developers and UI artists. Interaction and communication with the team was mainly handeled by the project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

As this project is a proof-of-concept of a not yet achieved technological feat, it allowed us to demonstrate and showcase our technical capabilities and increased our credibility as a mobile blockchain gaming venture.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project was deconstructed in milestones that were completed during continuous back and forth between the team and our blockchain developers. The completion criteria of each task was clearly defined in the preparation sessions for each milestone and timelines have been met as agreed on.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team showed high adaptability, autonomy and provided suggestions and solutions to potential problems by understanding and analyzing the project deeply. Communication, responsiveness and availability have been excellent as well.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None that i can think of now.
