Our client Digidiam Game Studio has set value on a technically sophisticated simulation that conveys the experience of using a gold pan as realistically and intuitively as possible, allowing the players to shake the pan as well as to move and pick up the 3D rendered objects with their fingers in a natural way.
The solution mabulous provided achieves this and much more. The gold nuggets and stones in the pan are physically simulated and can be accurately influenced by shaking and rotating the iPad. This real-world input is seamlessly applied to the virtual 3D scene presented on the screen, and even the reflections on the brushed metal finish of the digital pan react properly to the orientation change of the iPad.
Diamonds in the game reflect and refract light in different ways, can be cut by players into various shapes and viewed using upgradable magnifying glasses.
All technology and graphics design in this game is carefully handcrafted with attention to detail and optimal mobile performance. To achieve both, a high workflow efficiency and software quality, we combined Unity3D with Apple native technologies in this product and we are proud to have developed and designed the full project in-house.
The game is available on the Appstore and can be downloaded for free: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/prospectors-natures-slot-machine/id690029587?mt=8
