ABOUT MOBILE GAME DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

As the most popular category of app, games have the potential to reach an incredible number of users. Whether passing a few minutes with a casual puzzle or getting engrossed in an interactive storyline, mobile device users love games. Zco is a leader among mobile game development companies in the USA, bringing expertise to both desktop and mobile projects. Our engineers and artists use Unity, Maya, Corona, Cocos2D, and many other industry-leading tools to create the best gaming experience.

Games offer several alternatives for monetization. The simplest is the pay-to-download model, in which a user pays a certain amount to download the game initially. Much more common now is the in-app purchase model; with this strategy, the game itself is free, but special powers, additional vehicles, and other extras can be bought within the game. Finally, a free game can be supported by advertising. Contact us and we'll connect you with our best game app developers at Zco to advise you about all your options.

DEVELOPMENT OPTIONS

Unity Game Development

For rapid and reliable game development, Unity is often the engine of choice for mobile game companies. The integrated Unity Editor shows all assets and previews the look of the game without repeated compiling. Unity also accepts meshes, textures, anims, and bones from a number of different 3D modeling programs, including Maya, 3D Studio Max, Blender, and Lightwave.

Zco can build everything for you or take the 3D assets you’ve already made and fold them into a game. Output for iOS and Android devices makes cross-platform development simple, and the games can even be made for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and web browsers.

HTML 5 Game Development

Browser-based games can be played on virtually any device. By taking advantage of robust built-in multimedia capabilities, some Android and iPhone game development companies choose HTML5 because it can be wrapped in native code for app store distribution, reducing development time and reaching the widest possible audience.

HTML5 games, when hosted online, can be updated at any time without relying on the user. They’re easy to share with friends by sending a simple link. Page layout can always be adjusted to include different ads or promote new content.

2D & 3D Game Development

With over 20 years of experience in game development, Zco has the capability to bring your 3D and 2D game visions to life. Whether you are interested in desktop or mobile development Zco can handle your project from concept to launch. Using hardware on mobile devices – like the camera, accelerometer, and GPS – can make modern games even more engrossing. 3D games can be huge projects, so you are free to provide your own 3D models, storyboards, and other assets to reduce costs.

Millions of users of Android, iOS, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry have prompted developers to reinvent 2D games. RPGs, MMORPGs, arcade games, simulations, adventure games, and puzzles can all be enjoyed on smartphones and tablets. With low hardware requirements, 2D games can be played on even older mobile devices, reaching a wide audience.

Serious Game Development

Whether your plans are aimed toward classroom education, physical health, strategy-based innovation, or even business development and training, Zco, as one of the pioneering serious games companies, can work closely with you to produce the best possible results for your users.

Serious games bring the fun and interactivity of gaming to bear on topics that need to be learned. From creating iconic characters for visual impact, to outlining game mechanics and requirements, to the full creation of the game itself, Zco can help with all aspects of translating any training regimen to a mobile game.

Application Gamification

When aspects of competition and achievement are integrated into otherwise practical apps, that’s gamification. Badges, trophies, and scoreboards can motivate employees to be more thorough when using company apps. Both morale and productivity go up at the same time.

Zco offers extensive application development experience, including gamification for corporate and consumer apps. The more users enjoy an app, the better they’ll be at completing tasks with it.

Game Center Integration

Apple’s social gaming network, Game Center, is a powerful way to spread a game to new users. When developing games for iOS and Mac OS X, integrating Game Center functionality helps it get discovered and stay popular.

Game Center supports features like multiplayer, auto-matching to introduce players to each other, high score leaderboards, achievement tracking, and play between friends. Zco’s experience with the Game Kit APIs ensures that Game Center apps always work flawlessly.

WORKING WITH ZCO

Zco’s game development services consider the entire game: the user interface, hardware capabilities, game mechanics, and visual appeal. Some clients come to Zco with every single detail of a game already mapped out and designed; we then integrate all existing assets with the game code. Others have a more general idea what they want the game to do, and need a mobile game development company to fill in the whole picture. Zco works with our clients from start to finish, helping them see their vision through.

As with any project, we begin with a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) to protect all parties. An Account Executive and Project Manager guide customers through the whole process, answering questions and providing updates the entire way.

About Zco

Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Nashua, New Hampshire, Zco Corporation has served Fortune 500 enterprise companies to small businesses for more than 25 years. Now we have added a new office in downtown Boston to extend our services in mobile game development to more people. Read More

  • Hungry Bunnies 3D

    Two brothers reminiscing about whacking mechanical moles with a mallet - sometimes that's all it takes to inspire a new mobile game. Hungry Bunnies 3D takes the simple idea of "bashing cute animals on the head" and turns it into a touch-enabled, 3D mobile game experience.

    Players need to knock out the various and sundry woodland creatures trying to steal food. In addition to the basic hammer, players can use Black Holes, Cherry Bombs, Mud Traps, Spike Balls, and other weapons. Enemies become progressively stronger through each level, so power-ups become more and more vital.
