Real-time Auction Solution
In the auction house, auction attendees are able to bid and buy/sell their pets in real-time. Safety of multi-threading calculations has been ensured by Scala back-end and MongoDB, instances of which are running on the StackMob cloud.
One Back-end for Mobile and Web
Using StackMob technology allowed us to share the database and the back-end instances between the Strangelings iOS and the web game applications, which made integration very easy and ensured high-speed performance.
Easy Money Transfers
All the payments made by auction attendees are cashed through PayPal Adaptive Payments API. Additional commissions and fees depend on the item sell price and are included using linked payments.
Live Messaging Service
The integrated live chat, that is powered by the PubNub real-time network, is designed to allow visitors to discuss auction lots and help auctioneers to broadcast notifications about important upcoming events.
Social Media Features
Players can share direct links to auctions on Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus right from the lot pages. Also, to ensure a seamless user experience, social login is enabled for Facebook users.
