Idea Inspiration

It's a quirky game and there are many of these simple tapper/clicking based games out there but the inspiration for this game actually comes from a Math's class back in the school days around the turn of the millennium.

Our developer used to sit in class bored and with only a calculator at hand to fiddle around with, they'd type in '1 + 1' and then when you press equals, the number on the calculator would increment by one.

The game was to see how high you could get that number before the end of the class and when the calculator was put away.

Who would have thought Math class would be the inspiration of a silly game?!

Of course, that is a very simple game, to brighten things up a bit more we added the concept of the collectible eggs, something cute and happy looking. Who doesn't love an egg, right?

Another concept of the game is to relax and pass time. Have you ever been in situations where you need a low-level activity to calm and relax your brain, empty out all of those thoughts whizzing around? We have thought about this when designing the game, we want it to be a relaxing and escaping experience. Which explains why the game's background slowly changes colors as you tap away.

And the last key component of the game is odds. We've all heard one in a million, or that winning the lottery is like a one in x million chance, but it's hard for our brains to really comprehend just how big those numbers are. Playing One in a Trillion, you'll quickly find out that just catching a 1 in a 100k egg is so unlikely that you'll have to be tapping at your phone for days.

It's quite possible that no one will ever find the golden egg which comes around roughly once every trillion clicks!

HamLab's first mobile apps

This is our first look at building mobile applications and as our goal is to build lots of products for people to enjoy and use, we needed a way to make creating mobile apps an efficient process.

Therefore we used a Google development platform called Flutter, which is awesome because with one code base we are able to make really nice apps for both iOS and Android, saving a lot of development hours.

If you're a developer looking to get into mobile applications, consider Flutter or React Native as a quick way to create apps for both iOS and Android!

From a learning point of view we are testing out how to create interesting and vibrant store listings, as there are over 2 millions apps on the App Store getting exposure for your applications is going to be no easy task!

We're also testing out paid applications for the first time, what's the right price-point, is it a viable options, etc. We'll keep playing around with this sort of thing to see what works out best.

Maybe soon, we'll move to In-App purchases - If we find interesting ways to develop the functionality and enjoyability of the apps that we build.

We'll see!

Anyway, give One in a Trillion a try, and if you would like to try the app but for whatever reason, can not pay the fee - let us know and we'll provide you with a way to obtain a free copy :)

The joys of creating

Creating things, any type of thing, can be an amazing experience!

Firstly, you have those moments where an idea starts to formulate in your mind and you get the rush of excitement! You just want to stop what you are doing and get right to it.

Warning! Having ideas when you're lying in bed will stop you from falling asleep anytime soon. XD

Then comes the process where you start building and the idea becomes a real tangible thing, and it mutates as you see things that can be improved upon, or just don't work as you initially thought they would. It's a lot of fun.

The best part of the whole experience comes once you get your creation out there, it can be a nerve wracking experience but it's ultimately where all of the best rewards lie.

We showed friends and family One in a Trillion and the response was awesome, from people getting hooked on it, to friends getting their whole neighborhood playing the game! Hearing about people finding value from something you've made is a wonderful experience.

But it's not just that, opportunities can arise. Shortly after showing the app to people, we had suggestions such as the eggs having backstories, and those people are helping write those backstories at the moment.

A designer friend of ours noticed a few issues with the design of the eggs, which yeah! developers aren't often great designers, Hah! They're helping not only to improve the design but also add a lot more quirky types of design to the eggs, which in turn will give us inspiration to write even quirkier backstories and increase the quality of the game.

Who knows where these working relationships that are being built at the moment will lead to.

From a very simple idea and game. To who knows, but it'll be a fun to find out!

To anyone who has read down this far. In whatever you do and wherever your interests lie, if you have the opportunity, get creating things - you won't regret it. :)
