From Idea to Implementation:

Disruptive Interactive was looking for a reliable game development partner that could implement the highest quality solution quickly and efficiently. They engaged N-iX to assist in building a multiplayer cross-platform game based on their prototype due to the team’s experience.

The main challenge was in designing natural multiplayer experience and building great artificial intelligence with several difficulty levels distinguishable for the player.

Disruptive Interactive and N-iX worked on Lohko for around 2 months using the agile approach. N-iX programmers collaborated with the Disruptive on a custom AI algorithm similar to the ones used in chess games.

The joint effort resulted in the AI’s ability to calculate the probable outcomes of the situation and predict possible scenarios. Therefore, the game gets more and more difficult as the players develop their skills.

Value delivered by N-iX:
  • Collaboration and ideation with Disruptive.
  • Timely management and delivery of the project on budget
  • Excellent performance of the game
  • Application of latest game development technologies
  • Successful development and integration of AI
  • Engaging multiplayer experience
