NABOKI - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, before NABOKI, I’ve already made a couple of puzzle games. Hook, Klocki, PUSH, and Up Left Out.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Probably rotating the camera, so it’s not confusing. The rest was quite straightforward.

Hi! I'm Maciej, I've been making games since 2012.

I mainly focus on minimal puzzle games, because they give me a space

for experimentation and allow me to work alone.
The tools I use are Unity, Blender, and Gimp.

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

Strava, Telegram, Windy. These are the ones I use the most.

How long have you been working on this app?

Around 2 months of prototyping and 8 months full-time of development and release.

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

I wanted to make a simple, relaxed game. Where playing makes you feel good and it's not too demanding. If you want to play a chill/zen puzzle game while listening to a great ambient soundtrack it's a game for you.

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.

In NABOKi like in my other games, I always try to accomplish a relaxing, calm gameplay, where thinking is done in an intuitive way. So no sweating over the puzzles.

I want my games to feel different, there are no points, scores, leaderboards, timers, etc.
Just forget all that popular game mechanics. Just play and zone out. I try to accomplish meditative gameplay which is quite rare these days.

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

I will be adding new levels to NABOKI, but right now I’m finishing working on Hook 2, ( Hook had 2 mln downloads ), and will be launching it on 30 June.

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.)?

I just want to thank them for playing my games! And wish them a great day! :)


About App:
A simple, minimalist, and relaxing puzzle game where your goal is to take the level apart.

As always, this is a peaceful puzzle game, so it has no ads, time limits, scoring, or even text and can be played offline.

Calm gameplay is accompanied by an ambient, meditative soundtrack created by Wojciech Wasiak.
