Maksim - Game Dev of Royal Crypto, Merge Cats and Merge Dragon
Hello, Maxim, how are you doing?
Hey! It's great! Thanks for the invite, it's unical opportunity to get on line with our gamers! We’ll be glad to answer your questions and on user’s questions in comments too.
You have a big experience that you got before joining CryptoSoul. How did you choose this sphere and why did you choose us?
Fact that I want to link my life with game development I already knew from school time when I got my PC and played days and nights. And when in high school I wrote “Hello World” on C language I understood the way I want to go in game dev. That’s true, I already work in game dev before joining CryptoSoul. But only here I find that atmosphere that I search. Also we not only make games, we have global goal - make game economic part of reality. Sure, we can do this.
What do you like the most in your work?
The best thing in my job - that’s seeing how people like what I do. I am very inspired when I see feedback in google play or in Telegram. Making our users happy = make happy yourself.
What goals do you want to reach working in CryptoSoul?
Like I said - we have global goals and we all want to reach. And of course make cool and high quality games that can collect a big fan army.
You are working on Royal Crypto with Vitaly, but also you trying to have time to help guys with Merge Cats and Merge Dragon. Is it easy and how do you deal with it?
It's all time management. We have clearly allocated working hours so that I can devote maximum efforts to the development of Royal Crypto, but at the same time not disregard our guys. We with Vitaly and Victor engaged in Merge Cats, but when Anya and Bogdan join to us, we handed the cats into their hands. We did support and improve the Merge Cats, but they made the Merge Dragons themselves. Well, we help them as much as possible.
Tell me, what tasks do you currently have at work?
At the moment I am focused on the tasks related to the work of the server side of our new game. But, after the release of Royal Crypto, I will also start doing the front-end.
Was there a moment that you especially liked to realize, or work on it? What was it?
Every new mechanic that we add to the game is unique in its own way and it is very interesting to work on any of them. The most memorable part of the work on Merge Cats was, probably, the creation of super-cats and artifacts, it was a rather voluminous and interesting task. And I won't say anything about Royal Crypto yet, otherwise the players will not be so interested in waiting for the release.
Users often ask when Royal Crypto will be released. Is the option where the game will be released during the winter is real? When do you think this is possible and what affects the release date of the game?
Ok, let me reveal another secret. Closed beta testing will begin in the coming days. I think many of our regular players will be able to participate in it. It's hard to talk about a release date yet, but I'm pretty sure it will happen in 2020. Many factors influence the term, not all of them depend on us. But we are doing everything to make the game out as soon as possible.
Well, the question that is becoming a tradition. What would you wish for our players?
I want to say thank you for being with us. You are our main motivator. Good luck to everyone in this difficult time, take care of yourself and your loved ones. And, of course, Stay tuned guys! See ya!
