Extend the gaming experience

The client had a gaming portal and wanted to extend the user’s experience via mobile applications allowing players to access the web platform features on the go.

This is when he reached out to the NIX team to develop user-friendly iOS and Android applications with a custom design providing full gaming engagement.

001 CHALLENGE
  • Develop iOS/Android applications from scratch with the client’s backend team.

  • Provide the social side of the app such as messaging, profile customization and relevant content for different countries.

002 SOLUTION

High-functioning app to dive into gamer’s world

First off, the team performed integration with Steam, Facebook, Discord, and Twitter, enabling the gamer’s social interaction.

For backend, we used a REST API method that allows communication between a web-based client and serves as a bridge for incoming data.

UI is essential in such applications, and we’ve strived to make it attractive and high-functioning using UIkit. The well-thought-out interface allowed the user to dive into the game’s world and successfully interact with other gamers.

  • Display content differently depending on the user’s location (a more open version is available for Canada and the USA);
