Features released in the first half of 2020

Recently, over the last months, Loquiz has had active times. There has been a plentiful of features we have accomplished to bring to you to ease up your game development. Furthermore, also your game management and delivery process. 

The list of the new releases consists of different areas:

  • Fun & essential gamification opportunities to support offering surprise moments to your players. Many of our newest features are designed for the lockdown situation. But they are also handy during the off-season (e.g. winter-time).
  • Design customization. To clarify, these features allow you to change the color-themes that match your brand book. 
  • Further, the navigation features. There are mainly two functionalities around that. One (navigation with Google/Apple Maps), for instance, helps the player to get more conveniently to their next task location. On the other hand, the hide location is making it more difficult, meaning the player experiences gamified challenges. 
  • Multimedia features. We have extended the capacity of the in-app audio clips. Also, we have improved the photo wall that could also be shared with your player, once the game is played. 

Here are a throwback and summary of the features that we released since the beginning of 2020:
