This video poker multigame contains the most popular game modes found in casinos plus some additional games with experimental rules.
Programs used: Unity, Photoshop, Ableton, Spriter Pro, Camtasia, VEGAS Movie Studio 13
The poker game is chosen by the player using an RPG-style inventory system and the items are unlocked through gameplay.
Items are unlocked by purchasing them with Gold and/or through achievements.
See how much you have played and won in the different game modes.
The player can view the paytable for the active game mode. This will show the description of each pay, the amount and an example hand that wins the pay.
This is all drawn dynamically based on the rules set built into the game. If any of these details change, the paytable will automatically reflect the correct information.
An added touch is that the example hands will theme the cards to the selected Deck for the game.
Minigame for Free Gold
Players are encouraged to play the minigame each day to get free gold.
This is a time-locked game which can be played once a day.
I added a way to detect when players are trying to get around the time-lock and could use that to reset all progress (or anything else I wanted to do).
But I decided that if a player wants to cheat on my game, that is very flattering!
No game is complete without achievements!
I thought through a robust achievement system that lets me add new achievements to the game with little effort. Delegates are used for a reward system, letting some achievements give gold to the player, unlock the ability to purchase items, or give items.
The facebook API was added to the game, again for practice, to allow players to share their accomplishment with the world.
There are several decks to unlock with gold or through achievements, each with a unique flavor of RPG excitement. The idea of changing deck skins dates back to the original solitaire game for Windows and no card game is complete without it.
Microtransactions for Gold
If you are loving the game and want to play more, feel free to buy some gold to keep going.
Players who choose to only use the gold from minigames and optional ads each day should still find the game to be very enjoyable.
