Here Are A Couple Of My Recent Projects

Emotional Cricket Fan – A Browser-based Multiplayer Strategy Game

Emotional Cricket Fan is an online multiplayer strategy game on cricket. Where we use our business acumen & cricketing knowledge to make investment decisions.

We pick virtual matches to invest, taking into account factors like the venue, weather, rain, pitch report, teams playing, batting bowling strengths of teams, their international rankings & a lot more to get the maximum returns on our investments.

The game has a virtual currency which also enables us to pick stocks of virtual sports companies to further increase our profits & compete against the other players. ECF is integrated with Facebook which enables us to play, compete against our friends on Facebook.

Here is a glimpse of the project



I’ve built this using Java, Spring Boot, Html5, React, Google Cloud Datastore, Memcache & the game runs on Google Cloud.
