Heroes Empire: TCG - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, we are a very small but very capable team that has been working in the video games industry for several years now. The entire development team used to work in very important video game companies for many years until we got together and built this company.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

To offer a game of this genre good enough to compete with the already existing competitors and being able to be noticed in insanely crowded App Stores.

Christian Gascons, the interviewee, is the CEO at FrozenShard Games, a company founded back in 2012 by 3 former Blizzard Entertainment employees. Its target is to create mid-hardcore games and make people happy by entertaining them.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Clash Royale: For its very simple, yet so usable user interface.
2048: For its entertainment.
Sim City Builder: I owe mentioning them for so many hours I spent in that particular game.

How long have you been working on this app?

This app is a result of a 1-year development of custom engine and a few months adapting its theme.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We detected a hole in this particular theme on collectible card games and we thought we would help filling it.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We do believe we added many key features in this genre that others don’t have, such as the fact of not having a graveyard when the cards are destroyed, having an in-game promote system that increases the card’s tier during a match and especially being able to get that card back to your hand after it’s been defeated. It’s a game-changer from our point of view. I am particularly proud of the Raids system we developed, which is a game mode where you and your alliance friends can gather up and defeat weekly bosses together in order to get special rewards, it’s by far the most popular feature of the game.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We have many ideas on our mind (that we’d like to keep for ourselves by now!), these are basically the suggestions that have been requested by our players since the launch of the game. We like the idea of involving all players in the development and balance of the game.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Of course we’d love them to share the app with as many people as they can! There’s actually an in-game feature for that that they will see as they play in their first user experience so, do not hesitate and try it out ;)
