inCider is a cider beverage new to Croatian market. My former company Hi-tech was given the task to come up with Facebook game that will go along with inCider marketing campaign. A decision was made to go with classic memory game. The game had a leader board and a preset number of players had to finish the game so that one “round” would be over. At the end of each round, rewards were given to most skilled players.
The application was developed in two parts – the game itself is developed in Flash by a colleague developer; and supporting application was developed in Django by myself. It is fully integrated into Facebook, even the administration. The connection with Flash applet is accomplished via token-verified security, increasing security and making it difficult to fake results (tough not impossible due to the nature of Flash execution – is runs on client site and it can be de-complied).
