Project Scope

Our client added an in-game store to one of their most popular RPGs. To manage the store databases, they needed a custom management system. The system would integrate with the game and be used to manage sales, plan sales seasons according to the game’s plot, localize items to sell, etc.

Forbytes built an end-to-end store management system and an API that connects it with the game’s environment. The system has enabled the team to plan and manage the sales seasons according to the game’s seasons, manage and categorize items to sell, keep record of sales, and localize sales, everything in one secure place.

Another task was to streamline voucher management. Earlier, Sharkmob had to use a third-party service to create, manage, and distribute vouchers, which took extra time and increased the dependency on external providers. Forbytes built easy-to-use voucher management functionality that includes a voucher generator, transaction history, and voucher analytics, and integrated it into the management system.
