Game Development

Game development requires a combination of results done by the work of different specialists; game developers, graphic designers, mobile and desktop software developers, VR and AR specialists. For speeding up the development process Computools offers native plugins and utilities for Unity3D.

Computools’ custom architecture helps a large web project with a utility or server application easily initiate a server to execute a command or communicate with the frontend user. Therefore, if we were to create another video converter and needed to show it in any form, whether it be a game or an interactive application, we would easily be able to provide this functionality.

Computools’ engineers develop games for Desktop, Mobile, Console platforms in 3D and 2D forms. This is possible because of an IL2CPP compiler. Each platform has its own individual features and functionality. This is why we develop native libraries (which are called plugins) to make full use of the OS’s support.

01. Adventure & Actions Games

An adventure game is a video game where a player passes through different levels or locations in an interactive story driven by exploration and/or puzzle-solving. An action game usually has physical challenges, that highlight hand-eye coordination and reaction time.

Shooter Game Out Of The Box

A shooter is a subgenre of action video games. In a shooter, you have a mission or task in which you need to survive during your interactions with NPCs and clear them from a location using weapons. Shooters are separated by types: First Person Shooters, Third Person Shooters, and Stealth Shooters. Some good real-world examples such as Counter-Strike Go, Call of Duty, Half-Life, and Sniper fall into this category of video games.

In Computools’ out-of-box solution, you can find the following mechanics

- Shooting (Raycasting, Ballistic, Particles) - Mechanics of enemy AI (Patrolling, Path find, Close spawn) - Death mechanics (Full body, Custom body, Separate body)

Functionality:

Bad Mojos also supports Steam VR and Cardboard Support.

Viewz Demo Case Study:

Viewz Demo is a game for 3D banner advertising which can support more than 50 banners at the same time thanks to the special shader, the inside light effect, and the VR support.
