Developers Introduce New Turn-Based Strategy Game App, Inspired by Ancient Religious Symbolism
After nearly seven years of conception, game inventors John Johann Hymes and Bart Winfield Sibrel have created their first game app they name, Game of Seven. Launched under their company, Seven Interactive Limited, the app offers a new gaming experience with its unique gaming mechanics and art.
Originally conceived as a physical board game, this new digital gaming app works in a turn-based cycle and a theme depicting the ancient story of the heavenly elements. The two players match, leading a detachment of angels and archangels. The goal is to try and grab the four ‘gates of heaven’ around the ‘throne of God’ before the opponent. The interface is further enhanced with the game’s remarkable animated graphics with catchy sound effects and coral music.
According to John and Bart, they were inspired by the ancient symbolic significance of the number seven when creating the composition. “The number 7 is special in almost every culture. There are 7 days a week, 7 notes on the music scale and 7 colors in the light, ”said the researcher.
Game of Seven also uses the number 7 in many aspects. First, the game board has seven squares on each side. Each player has seven pieces that are moved seven places on each turn. They are given up to 77 seconds to take their turn, rotating the dice three times with a total of seven combinations. A star is awarded to a player when three dice total seven.
The app makers also highlight that Game of Seven is a strategy game and a grand return to the classic board game. “Most of today’s games are either simple ‘goblet-up’ arcade games, shoot-‘-m-up’ war games or hour-long fantasy games, while games of seven – such as chess, checkers and backgammon – challenge the intellect,” said Seven Interactive. Ltd. team said.
Game users can choose to play against an AI opponent, another random player, or a friend in the game network. Game of Seven has a worldwide leaderboard controlled by the Seven Interactive team and hosts the gaming community on Facebook.
For the benefit of players with different device types, the game provides full cross-platform support designed to help when needed. Friends can also compete with each other on their different devices.
Game of Seven is currently available for download on Android, iOS and Steam. The Microsoft Store and Mac App Store versions are currently being finalized for the benefit of casual players on Windows and macOS. In addition, Seven Interactive Physical Game Board is working on plans to release a set version that will include both standard and deluxe versions.
The sequel to Game of Seven was developed in Unity by the skills of a Ukrainian software company called SOFTUUP LLC, which had to relocate to Portugal due to the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine. Seven Interactive Ltd., which hired the Ukrainian team, is headquartered in Haifa, Israel.
John Yohanan Hymes, co-founder and managing director of Seven Interactive, said, “This unique collaboration between a Ukrainian and an Israeli company demonstrates the power of creating individuals who care only about creating a solid strategy game for the enjoyment of the players.
