Overview

*note: I’m breaking with the doc template and putting feature details at the bottom since this feature is so complex.

 Metrics to Move

 

  • Monetization: Players will be able to buy their way out of the friend/viral currency value gates.

 

  • Virality: There is a viral currency built into room expansion. There is a viral friend requirement built into the floor expansions.

 

  • Retention: There will always be the next step visible for players such as an unfinished roof or ghost doors enticing them to move forward.

 

Numbers

Numbers for each feature subset are in the details sections..

Integration Issues

This feature touches the entire game and will likely be difficult to implement.

Art Assets

Art assets are extensive including wireframes, feed images, pop ups and door items.

Programming Estimate

TBD. Programming will be extensive as it will require new systems and improvements to existing systems.
