Developer Corner – Meet Dre!

October 29, 2011

Developer Corner

Say hello to Dre and his impressive belt collection.

Dre’s one of our game designers at I AM PLAYR.

We sat down with him to talk about all things PLAYR.

If you have any questions for Dre or any our development team let us know and we’ll see if we can get them answered for you.

 

For those that can’t watch the video here is the interview transcript.

“Hello There,

I’m Andreas Yiannikaris and I am one of the Game designers at WE R INTERACTIVE.”

Why did you decide to become a games developer?

“I love games. It’s all of the disciplines. The good musicians, good sound designers, good idea guys, programmers, graphics guys and animators. It’s just all the best people – doing what they are good at. Every now and then when it all comes together it is a thing of beauty, man.”

What are you favourite parts of I AM PLAYR?

“My favourite element of I AM PLAYR is, really, I have to say is the general ambition of the project. There are no other games doing what we are doing. Certainly on Facebook. It’s never final, you can constantly change stuff.”

Any changes you would make to the game?

“What would I change in the game? A greater level of synergy between the story and the gameplay. Just making them feel like they are one thing. That they completely affect each other.”

    I found a pretty serious bug here, the last 3 matches the score was changed, for example when I scored 2 goals and laidlaw score 1, we win 3-2, but in the end it shows 1-2 and we lost????? same thing happened the previous match when 1-2 became 0-2?? my goals doesn’t seem to count.

    I dont want to go to the penthouse with laidlaw but it wont come off the map and i cant carry on with the story of the game. also my friend doesnt want to sign with deans’ agent he wants to join laidlaws agent but it wont give him the option and it wont carry on with the story

      Hi Ste, going to the penthouse with Laidlaw is how you progress your relationship with Laidlaw (should you want to!) and although it’ll stay on your map until you decide you wish to go it shouldn’t stop you from progressing.
      With your friend’s account he will eventually see another agent to choose from. If he doesn’t want to choose Frank he doesn’t have to! It depends on how he’s played his game so far – your decisions do affect the speed and the outcome of certain storylines. Again, if he doesn’t want to choose Frank it won’t stop him from progressing not to so ask him to make sure there’s nothing else on the map or left side of the screen that needs attention.
      As always, if you need technical help or have any general enquiries please submit a form in the Help section as we’ll be able to investigate your game accounts in more detail from there.

      Hi,
      1)The game’s free to play so you don’t have to purchase coins to progress they just give you the option of both supporting the company that makes the game And getting you through a little faster if you want to purchase bundles.
      2)You won’t be able to transfer, it’s River Park for life- at least for the foreseeable future.
      3)You do get a daily bonus for returning to the game, up to a cycle of 5 consecutive days. The game is free to play- isn’t that gift enough? ;)
      4)this is a new bug, we’re working on a fix for all scoring issues and we apologise for the frustration whilst we fix the issue.
      Thanks!

    The game is great but what’s with the coins? We need more coins so we can buy equipment. Also the fitness requirements per game are too high. Thanks Dre :)

      Coins help you to speed up your energy replenishment and also speed up your stat increase by purchasing better boots so you can improve your ball control . There have to be some perks to supporting the game financially! And if no-one did there’d be no game to play.
      I AM Playr is completely free to play you just need a little bit of patience to wait for your energy bar to replenish and your stats will improve gradually the more training levels you achieve.

    what’s the point of money in this game? I think you should make it so that the money you have can buy you coins or something. Or a way to get coins. maybe a coin a goal? also i think there should be transfers to other clubs in the future and other leagues and statistics for the season. great game though!!! you should work with ea sports to help create their be a pro mode haha!

      At the moment your cash and value is like your high score to see how well you’re progressing through the game and against your friends! We are looking at ways to involve your bank account within the gameplay too.
      You’ll always be a Griffin but we’re also looking at more competitons for RPFC to compete in. Glad you like the game Zzak, we’ve got so much more planned for it!
