We develop a multiplayer browser game!
You want to participate? - Then you have come to the right place!
The community project is a joint effort of many volunteer members. We are a team of administrators, designers, software developers and game designers. It takes a lot of time, good skills, motivation, passion and discipline from every single person in the community to make Cryptic a successful game. The community project offers many opportunities for you to participate, whether you have programming skills or not. At the same time, you will immediately join a friendly and motivated team.
The backend is developed in Java and Python. The entire interface of the game is developed in Angular and the corresponding web languages HTML, SCSS and TypeScript. The Cryptic website is developed in Vue.js in combination with Nuxt.js.
If you have any questions or want to get started right away, feel free to join the Discord Server. If you know more than one programming language, this is even better. There are also areas for non-programmers, including game design, graphic design, security, testers and text correction.
Testing the game is an important part of the process leading up to release, because a game with lots of bugs isn't a good game. Testing Information about the performance and stability of Cryptic under real conditions can be very useful for developers. Therefore we would be happy if you test the game thoroughly.
Furthermore, the game needs to be translated into many languages to make Cryptic accessible to many interested players. This applies not only to the game but also to the website.
If you want to work on the game design you need creativity. All content that has to be programmed has to be defined and written in documents. These documents are then handed over to the programming team for implementation. This means that existing ideas must be worked out in writing for later development. But before we work out anything in writing, we will discuss it together in the team and everybody can bring in his suggestions. Of course, players are also allowed to contribute new game ideas.
The text team also has a lot to do in our blog. To keep it up to date, a team has to constantly adapt it - write new tutorials, report on updates to the game and much more!
