- My Roles: API Designer, Product Manager, Development Manager
- Categories: Gamification, API Platform, SaaS
I lead the API design, and managed the development of SUGAR API. Created as a gamification API layer, SUGAR delivers the platform for integrating multiplayer game mechanics into new and existing games and digital resources.
At it’s heart SUGAR API is bringing people together in any game, not just to compete with, but to cooperate with. The APIs and system is designed from the ground up to facilitate a wide variety of team play dynamics, such as clans, groups and leaderboards. From sharing goals and achievements, to sharing resources and inventories, SUGAR API makes it quick and easy to turn a one-person experience into a team based multiplayer experience.
- Simplify your multiplayer game development
- Integrate clan and team structures to make your games cooperative
- Define and track individual and team; Goals, Actions, Achievements, Rewards, Inventory and Resources
For fans of competitive game dynamics, SUGAR API provides a substantial set of tournaments and matchmaking dynamics that can operate on the individual or between team levels.
For fans of cooperative game dynamics, SUGAR provides shared goals, resources and achievements, providing the perfect platform for games that require collaboration between players.
For fans of simplified development, SUGAR provides a method of defining the game logic and gamification aspects like achievements in a generalised way so as a developer you don’t have to reintegrate into multiple platform. Simply write your achievements or leaderboards once in SUGAR and use them on Google Play, Apple Game Services or Steam.
