Hey there, fellow runners! Welcome to our very first "Roach Builder Report 1.0." As we gear up for our public release, we're stoked to pull back the curtain on our building process. We promised to build in public, and it's time to share with you detailed updates on the current stage of Roach Racing Club game dev. In this edition, we'll be covering these updates:
R&D of genome structure – the aim is to create a flexible yet comprehensive concept of Roach biology based on in-born traits as the foundation for the entire Roach population
Traits logic and data structure in NFT tokens have been established, as well as their effect on Roach biology, appearance, and performance on the race
Roach 3D constructor module has been developed that allows to procedurally create roaches from the traits so that appearance and biology are now directly derived from the NFT token data on the go. This enabled Roaches to be upgradable on the biological level and immediately visualized in the interface
Breeding Mechanics has been upgraded and extended with ingenious methods of gene cross-mutations and trait inheritance
Race DB model developed and structure created
Player DB model created
Backend API developed
Frontend API developed
Handling data about players, roaches, race results
Registration of participants
Creation and initialization of races
Processing of race results and storage in Race DB
Racing interface updates and in-game GUI API refactoring and performance optimization
Draw-call optimization and game asset size optimization to boost performance and allow smooth gameplay on different types of devices
Optimization of the server-client protocol allowed us to reduce the load on the network by 10 times
Implementation of the glow effect for better visuals
Integration of coins rewards on the race tracks
The in-game boost control module UI chart upgrade
Boost animations updates
That's a wrap for our first Roach Builder Report 1.0! We're pretty happy with how things are going and can't wait to share the first public version. Meanwhile, you can apply for beta-testing of our current demo here. We already conducted more than 50 demo sessions, collected feedback, and keep on making our game better and better with your help.
We hope you enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look, and we'd love for you to stick around. Share your thoughts, and be sure to follow us on Twitter to stay in the loop with the latest news, updates, and opportunities. Together, let's race into the future of Web3 gaming!
See you at the finish line!
