How We Work

Key Pillars

Alpha Dog’s process focuses on building four key pillars: the core gameplay loop, the metagame progression, the social interaction with live events and “finding the fun”.  We develop the core gameplay first and look to find immediate fun in the process.

Rapid Development

We build the core gameplay on device as soon as possible. Once the game is on device, the team will spend time polishing the core gameplay and starts building the metagame. With this method we can get fast and effective results. With an “always live” game hooked into our backend servers, we don’t need to guess the performance as data metrics are already being tracked. “Always test on device” is our mantra.
