We believe that by successfully creating and selling our own content we reach a stronger understanding of the game creation process, and we’ve begun to apply this thinking to other exciting opportunities as well. Our latest mobile release, Evertale, features over hundreds monsters to catch, evolve, and combine, and became the #1 paid mobile game worldwide.

Engineering at ZigzaZaGame
Engineering team and processes

Our engineering department has a flat organization structure with minimal management positions. Engineers are encouraged to provide input into the development process from start to finish. The design process for Evertale started with identifying core improvements and structural changes to our previous game (Neomonsters).

In parallel to this, the Japanese side of the team began brainstorming and creating shared documents specifying the overall game design plan. Over time, the development team and the content team solidified which features made the most sense and we narrowed down the exact feature set to have ready for launch.

Our client team uses Perforce for version control and our server team uses Git. We have separate tracks for development staging and release. All interactions require single sign in authentication via LDAP.

Technical Challenges

Our servers handle repeated requests from tens of thousands of unique users every day requiring a large optimized server cluster.

We put a lot of thought into how we can secure our titles against cheating and other manipulations.

Projects you might work on
  • Maintain, grow and optimize Evertale's web infrastructure.

  • Create new APIs to allow future features planned for Evertale.

  • Create infrastructure and enhance the API for new titles already underway.
