Minimal Dungeon RPG - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I’ve been a programmer for more than 10 years. I am still coding for some part of our games, though not all of them.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

I think it’s the design phase, we don’t know if the gameplay really works, there are few similar games to reference. It is a kind of a trial and error thing that carries great risk. The developing team did not have enough confidence.

The interviewee, Heng Fu, is the Founder and Producer of CapPlay. CapPlay is a computer game developer and publisher founded in 2015. Working with partners all over the world, CapPlay has made dozens of games on Mobile and PC, and pleased millions of players globally.

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

I like games that have a great balance between gameplay and profit, for example, Clash of Clans and Township are my favorite mobile games, which I consider as textbooks of mobile games. Also, I like innovative incremental games very much, such as CivClicker or Kittens Game, there are plenty of them on the web.

How long have you been working on this app?

By this fall, we will have been working on the game for a year.

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

We want the players to focus on the essentials of an RPG, the exploring, the upgrading, the fighting, and the story. Fancy graphics may also limit players’ imagination and we believe the minimal design could provide an immersive experience as well.

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.

For all the good games in this genre, I don’t think Minimal Dungeon is superior to others. It is just a kind of different,-lucky-with-the-different-players like. While most of the games in the industry go with more complex designs and more fancy graphics, having something small, interesting, and different may be enough for the players and big enough for the developing team.

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

We’ve been working on updating content, fixing bugs, and providing new features. We’ve received tons of feedback since the game’s launch, asking for more content and suggesting many great features. We have a long to-do list and will do our best to make the proposed items/features become a reality.

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.)?

Thank you very much for playing the game, I appreciate it if you can leave a review on the store page or share it with your friends. If you come across any problems while playing, please feel free contact us via [email protected].
