Who are Nerdiacs?
We are 4 friends from Pakistan who shared the idea of creating excellent games. We are registered entity in Singapore as Nerdiacs Pte Limited with subsidiary in Pakistan. Our game development is done mostly in Karachi, Pakistan and marketing/sales is done via Singapore.
We started with our first mobile game idea of a Labrynth look a like. We quickly discarded the idea as better games already existed in that genre. We then decided to do another 2D game and soon scrapped it as we could never get it to look great and we got plenty of physics issues. These 2 games seemed like failures but as a team we learned a lot from these experiences. We realised that it is much better to spend more time in researching for a solution on internet and even in open source community rather than building everything from scratch ourselves. We decided to use opensource LGPL BulletPhysics engine for our game physics engine. This has helped us a lot and we have been able to save a lot of our development time.
Previous failures didn’t put us down but made us think of doing a better job and differentiate ourselves from most games on mobile platforms. We decided to move into 3D project knowing very well that this could take 6 months to 1 year in development. It has taken us longer than that but our believe in this game has stayed alive and we never felt the need to scrap this game.
We have even more ambitious plans for our next game titles and we are quite confident of our skills as a team now. We are confident that we will be regarded as one of best game companies in mobile platforms in a short period of time.
In upcoming blogs we will be writing about our experience in coding the games and different tools we used that should help others learn from our experiences.
