The OCDOM and the Truck World

What have we lived for ? The answer for it varies from person to person. The longing for love, the search for knowledge, and the unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind, that’s what Bertrand Russell answered. Perhaps a flat light life with relaxing afternoon tea, or comfortable carefree career?

No need to be so lofty. The original idea was simple —— make a game while young and enthusiastic in spare time. If lucky enough with the product, that’s good; if unlucky, it’s still OK for what we have learned and experienced. Since there’s nothing to lose, the proposal was accepted immediately.

A team was gathered at once. Separated tasks on project planning, game designing, UI & Art designing and app programming were then assigned to skilled partners, the right role does the right thing. Besides, we invited ET, the co-founder of eumlab.com , as our music producer to compose wonderful original music for the game. Every member of us was carefully selected. We all love game and are passionate on our project. Although we do it in spare time, the progress is still satisfactory. We named the team OCDOM—— it is an onomatopoeia which represents the sound of a kind of clockwork warrior.

We are not novices in iOS app developing, but what we face now is a totally different app genre, and developing an independent game is still a great challenge for all of us. Do it blindly, or do it well prepared, of course we chose the latter. We consulted with some experienced iOS game developers and benefited greatly from them such as  how to run a project efficiently and what the current iOS game market is like. We discussed on the most popular games and finally decided to develop a simulation game. The simulation game is not as flooding as other games such as common strategy games or card games, and the needed numerical relationship and logic system is just what we are skilled at during previous works. So the project started, Truck World is the name of the creation.

The Truck World is set in continent of European where players act the part of the boss  of a truck freight company. At the beginning there’s only one green hand driver and a small truck to assign. As the game goes on, more money is earned to promote the business so more advanced drivers  trucks and different cities are available. With good operating strategy the company may grow stronger, even monopolize the entire trucking industry. The fun of the game mainly comes from that process. In addition, there are also other unique designs to make the game interesting and amusing.

The developing progress  is now drawing nearer to an end and the preview of the game is due soon. We can’t predict how the game will be in vast app game market in future, but we do our best to create such a game with touchable sincerity, love and passion.
