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.
