With brand new UI and refreshing visuals, KoGaMa is undergoing great improvement in visuals, user-experience and functionality.
Not long ago, we revealed that we got an investment from Nordisk Film Games, and that we aim to accelerate our international growth in 2018. We have a strong team and a plan for 2018, and now we’re all about doing, implementing and improving. As a matter of fact, with recent updates we have released major overhauls of visuals along with a number of additional improvements of features
Single Winning Conditions
The following image shows a teaser of the new Single Winning Conditions update.
KoGaMa contains a lot of different goals and ways of winning. While this improves KoGaMa in terms of gameplay diversity and replayability, a greater effort to communicate and emphasize clear goals is required. To ensure a fun and rewarding player experience, we felt that it is important to emphasize clear goals.
To achieve this, we have made major improvements to the user interface and features when playing games. When players are entering a game, they will now see a briefing screen introducing the goal of the game mode as well as current team scores. Players will now be able to know exactly what type of game they are entering and what they should do.
These changes have not only made the gameplay more user friendly - it is now easier to host events and contests. To host a contest with an audience, accessible information such as clear info on team ranking or winners are critical. With clear winning conditions and team progress info, contests are now more meaningful.
While being a game maker tool and a place to play games, KoGaMa is also a social platform. It is therefore critical that the chat experience between users is polished and nurtured. With this in mind, we gave the KoGaMa friend list chat a lot of love. The below screenshot shows a snippet of what the newly released chat looks like.
The new chat interface and functionality now offers a much better experience. We ripped the old chat apart and gave it a whole new and clean look. It now has a more modern and smooth feel. It is no longer clunky, and now takes up much less screen space.
It’s not only about looks, the inside matters too! And we completely agree. We have therefore not only given the chat a visual overhaul, it also has also gotten new functionality that improves the messaging experience greatly. It is now easier to keep track of notifications, active and recent conversations.
KoGaMa builders already had the option to ad ambient sounds to spice up the atmosphere of their games. But these speakers are only local, and to add ambient sound to the whole game, the creator has to place tons of speakers. With the newly global speaker update, players are now able to add sound throughout the whole game with just a single speaker. On top of making the life easier for builders, the new speaker also includes new sounds.
Future Updates: Sneak Peak
As of future updates, we are working on a lot of changes and features. We are soon releasing a major update that greatly enriches the builders’ possibilities to customize their game world as well as spice up the atmosphere of for their players.
Another update that we are excited about is the wings cosmetics which is a completely new type of cosmetic. We know that wings and back items in general are really popular among the KoGaMa players. Therefore, we are excited to realize just that. The hats and particles will soon be united with wings as well as a complete makeover of the cosmetic shop look and functionality.
That's all for now! Thanks for reading.
