Creative bug — a clever, clever little bug that does a number on its enemies, but it’s also a little bit clever about what it does — is all about creating opportunities for people to work together.
Its creator, Yossi Sagi, a former graduate student at Columbia University, says the team had an opportunity to “make a game that is so fun for people,” and that it’s an “innovative game that could have gone to many other companies, but didn’t because we wanted to make a game for people that could be enjoyed by everyone.”
“It’s not just the fact that we are a creative team, but the fact we’re a team of young developers,” he says.
“If you don’t think about how much fun this is for us to create a game, and to see it on our phones, and you don’st see the same creativity from other people, then you need to think about it more.”
The team began by figuring out how they could find people to help them, but Sagi says it was a struggle.
“We started with just looking at Facebook, and then we looked at other social media networks,” he said.
“After that, we started looking at Instagram.
And then we did our own research.
As a result, the team built a simple game that they call “Creative Bug.” “
In the end, we decided to build a product, and we built it on top of Instagram, so that we could get more people involved.”
As a result, the team built a simple game that they call “Creative Bug.”
The basic concept is simple.
Each bug has an image that it creates that appears on the screen, with the player clicking on the image to interact with it.
The bugs can also have a different image that appears at a specific time, and if the user clicks on it to interact, it creates a new one, as well.
It’s simple, but effective.
“The idea is to make it as simple as possible, and so it’s not like you’re building a puzzle, or you’re making a puzzle with a lot of variables and not a good starting point,” Sagi said.
And because the game is so simple, it allows for people’s creativity to shine.
“There’s something really exciting about creating something with no rules,” he added.
The developers created the game as a demo and released it to playtest with their friends.
“It has an interesting structure,” Siggi said.
“[The bugs] can be a very useful tool, but they also have to be very good, and people will use them because they’re fun.”
The idea of using a game as an experiment and to test a new way of thinking was intriguing to Sagi and his team, so they decided to give the game a go.
Sagi decided to create the game for the iPhone as a proof of concept.
“I thought it would be a fun way to test the idea,” he told Mashable.
“A way to see if people are really into the idea and if they’re into it, and the other side of it, which is, ‘Hey, what’s the gameplay like?'”
They also wanted to see how well the game would work in a real-world setting, but this time they wanted to focus on a different aspect of bug creation: “This was not a game about making bugs, or even just bugs, but I wanted to try to make bugs that are really fun, and that can be played in different ways, and be a way of making new kinds of games,” he explained.
So the team started by building a prototype.
“First, we built a prototype for the game, which was about 20 square meters,” he recalled.
“Then we built an iPad version, which has an actual gamepad.
We also built a smartphone version, and this is when the idea for the prototype was born.”
As part of their test run, the designers created two versions of the game.
“One of them was for the people who are in the business of making games, and it was really fun,” he continued.
“And the other version was for everyone, and everybody loved it.”
But the prototype proved to be less than successful in terms of player engagement.
“So, in the end we decided that the version that we made for people was more fun and interesting, and they loved it more, so we decided we were going to do a version for everyone.”
Sagi believes the game will be an easy-to-use game for players of all ages.
“Because it’s so simple and straightforward, we hope that people will be able to get into the game and get to play,” he stated.
The team also hopes that the game’s simplicity will appeal to those who want to make their own games.
“People like to try out new things, so if we can make a simple,
