GameBadger: Mobile Gaming with a Social Twist
GameBadger provides social functionality to single-player mobile games running on Android powered mobile devices.
GameBadger users can challenge one another to a partnered game, putting forth a set amount of virtual currency as a "bet". Once the challenge ends, the winner takes all.
After conducting a user needs assessment, we prototyped a UI, tested the prototype with users, and incorporated that feedback into an eventual live Android application. We also developed a server side infrastructure to store and manage data, including a RESTful API that communicates with the Android application.
