x7 VIP Club

x7 VIP Club

 

The x7 VIP Club was designed to be the elite nightclub public environment for the elite PlayStation® Home players. Players could only enter if they had several high-end items in their inventory and as a reward were granted access. Once inside, players could hang out high above the city, play several mini-games, and get early first-look access for certain items before anyone else in Home.

 

 

As the principle software developer for this project, my contributions included:

  • Developed the Flirting mini-game where players could flirt with other Home users to earn a spot on a rotating leaderboard
  • Implemented the dance floor mechanic where additional lighting and atmospheric effects would take place based on the number of people on the dance floor
  • Responsible for core mechanics of the x7 VIP Club environment
  • Developed the DJ booth where players could choose the music that they wanted to listen to from a list of songs that could be rotated out on the backend
  • Responsible for continued development of client-side communication code required for networked data and telemetry
  • Assisted in quality assurance testing of game(s)
  • Worked alongside SCEA representatives for testing, promotional, and requirements validation
