I put together a small team for some clients who wanted to develop a mobile game to help share Buddhist and Nepali culture through games. Yeti’s Quest is about a yeti named Dorze who has come back home to Nepal after a journey around the world. However, when he attempts to travel up the mountainside the demon Mara blocks his way with enchanted gates. Dorze must run up the mountain, crashing through the magical gates and facing many challenges as he attempts to make it back home.
There were various setbacks during the development of this game, and while the game didn’t remain available on the app store for long, this project was valuable in other ways. I learned a lot about team and client management along with some hard lessons about dealing with budget and project scope.
