Organization and task setting

Crocoapps has developed its own task tracker - apptask.ru. It allows you to professionally manage and lead kanban projects. What needs to be done first? Cut tasks for the team based on the terms of reference, describe and structure them correctly. During the development process, the status of tasks changes. From the new task, they go through the standard funnel, eventually getting checked by the tester. Effective management is the basis for the development of any project.

Project architecture

The task tree is inconvenient to plan and distribute, so we structure it into development stages. We know exactly the sequence of tasks, what we can launch in parallel, and what is better to wait. So - we can understand at what point of the project we are, where we should go.

Time and Material

On this project, the client's obligatory condition was the maximum transparency of the team's work. It was important for him to know who performs what tasks, how much time the performer takes to complete the task, how many hours a day he devotes to this project. Such transparent work is possible with the TM (Time and Material) format - when the customer pays for the actual work performed based on hours worked. It's convenient and most importantly, it's cheaper.

What's inside?

25 game locations that were drawn by our artists with 3D modelers. Some of the elements were modeled and then sent for rendering - to achieve the effect of isometry, or as it is called - pseudo 3D. The game camera is located on the side, the control of the WASD keyboard arrows. The player's task is to solve the problems received from the NPC in the allotted time. To manage the game process, we have developed an administrative panel that allows you to edit all game text, questions and answers to them.

Made in a futuristic high-tech style, fully consistent with robotic interfaces, conveying the effect of the future that has come to MIPT.

Game characters

Beautiful and funny robots - a total of twenty pieces. Reminds me of the robot EVE from Wally. High-quality and diverse animations, taking into account the isometric core and beautiful VFX effects, allow our studio to be proud of the result. Some of them are ordinary NPCs. And the other part is the game characters that the players of this project play.
