Online stock simulation games have a viral hit, and we want to carry on those enthusiasms to the other aspects of investment for individuals.
Real estate seems a very exciting and interesting place to start, so we created this game to attract aspiring landlords/landladies and educate them for their future investments.
What it does
The game that simulates renting out properties as a landlord
Educates aspiring or current landlords to perform best practices on their properties and toward their rentees
Helps inform knowledge that landlords should have through the form of a game
How we built it
Brainstormed the idea
Created a mock-up on Figma and iterated over it until it looks good
Conducted user survey to make sure the interface looks as expected
Then, we started developing the HTML
Challenges we ran into
Thinking about an idea that we want to work on
Limited background in app development
Styling is a pain but it was rewarding to see it after completion
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to collaborate together and bounce ideas off of each other
Clearly distinguish the MVP's from the nice-to-have features
What we learned
We learned that prototyping is very important to translate our ideas into a product
Some Swift when we were trying to develop it as a mobile app
What's next for Landlopoly
Implement play with nearby player function for friendly competition
Collaboration with real estate/rental apps such as Zillow Inc.
Insert educational blogs and posts to better educate the players
