This is a brain trainer game in which the player’s objective is to quickly solve a lot of simple puzzles divided into 5 categories: Logic, Math, Memory, Language, Concentration.

As a lead game designer, I:

  • Created the design and design documentation of the entire game
  • Designed the puzzle mechanics and specific puzzles
  • Designed game content
  • Supervised the development of the game from the design standpoint

The development period turned out to be a mess for the company: 3 producers and 2 lead game designers subsequently replaced each other. I stayed with the project throughout the process and maintained the vision of the game, and finally we made a solid product that scored much higher points on specialized gaming sites than several previous games made by the company.
