Our team was eager to explore the possibilities of the Facebook Instant Games platform and to understand what is the process of getting a game published on there.
The team settled on a few key elements that a successful Instant game should have:
- Quick, catchy gameplay
- Funny or spicy shareable content that people would want to share with their friends
- Chatbot support
- Purchasable unlockable bonus content
Inspired by the 360 rotation camera alignment mechanic of Playgendary’s POLYSPHERE, FractureZ was developed as a light narrative-driven game where the player runs a repair shop putting the fractured pieces of antique objects and knick-knacks back together, solving 3D object puzzles.
Each completed object comes with a customer review that can shared in Messenger or on Facebook.
To complement the game and keep players engaged, our Chatbot Simon, by sending a series of special collection of objects to work on over a period of time. In addition, Simon will give comments in Messenger about the objects you’re working on and give you reminders.
