About

 The galaxy awaits you, Commander!!!

Horrible tech-aliens beings, the Trayers, have arrived in our galaxy wanting to seize control of the universe. The only obstacle in their path is you, MATH-Commander!

MATH-Commander is an arcade game that combines the best in Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technology to create an exciting action experience. Our game is more challenging than typical “shoot 'em ups.” The virtual computer sets the next Trayer to destroy by presenting a simple math operation. You, MATH-Commander, must choose quick and wisely which Trayer corresponds to the right answer.

MATH-Commander has one hero - YOU. If you are playing from VR you will see the playing action in front of you. An Iron Man–style virtual console display will inform you how many targets you must destroy, how much time you have, and what your next target is.

For those playing the AR version, the scenario will display over a real surface previously identified by your mobile's camera. You will see your base cannon and enemies through your mobile device and choose your targets by tapping.

As parents and people that wish to keep our mind sharp, we want a game that can offer an inspirational argument to achieve learning. The more you play MATH-Commander, the more your math agility will improve. Our game gets rid of boring methods for learning math—no more math sheets full of blanks to be filled with answers. There’s no excitement or reward in that. 

We promise that you and your kids will experience incredible challenges that will let you unavoidably to master basic math calculations keeping your mind sharp. Does it sound better than a game where you kill anybody just because they exist?... well... YES.

We create games with two different goals: Entertainment and Education. We learned much about educational Apps when we released "Circuland" and "Chopi" through the AppStore. After those games, we incorporated 3D and AR in "Jumping Home" and "Saving Christmas." With MATH-Commander we're moving a step forward. Now we're creating a game that includes versions for AR and VR. But even that was not enough.

MATH-Commander is a challenge to any age. But, it combines entertainment and learning in an unusual fashion way. You may find a ton of games to kill adversaries and another lot of games of boring math. But a game that combines VR, AR, great music, beautiful art and the requirement to improve your skill as you advance in the game, it's something we always want to see and never found. Well, at least not in this cool presentation.

MATH-Commander was originally conceptualized for Oculus Go. Our current prototype’s functionalities are almost done, but we want to push our game further by moving it to iOS and Android. Why? Because to save the galaxy, we need as many commanders as possible. With your help, we can do that.

Creating a game requires multiple artistic talents: Concept Art, 3D Modeling, Animation, Music, Coding (yes, coding is an art) and, of course, a brilliant argument. We have a small team that includes one talent for every flavor (two of them in coding). And, as you can imagine, to save us from the Trayers (a horrible Tech-Alien being) we need to survive by eating pizza, hamburgers and pop.

We used to think that as developers we could create beautiful art for any of our characters, scenario, and components of the game. Man, we were wrong. So we decided to invite a concept artist to draw the ideas we have in our minds. The work was stunning.

The conceptualization process is the one that requires more iterations. First, the original idea is presented in a meeting fulfill with creativity. We talked about characters, how they should look, what features they have, what kind of personalities, what colors we think best, etc. Then, we have the first demonstration of different concepts that are usually wrong, but it'll help us pick ideas for the second concept. On the second try, everything starts to get into order, and from that moment we begin to detailing everything.

Every detail must be perfect because this is going to be the release version. Of course, when you have a clear idea of character in concept art, everything is a lot easier for the 3D Modeling. Now they know what we want.

We created some Trayers (by now you should know that they are a horrible Tech-Alien being) for our game's prototype. But to make the 3D modeling and animations, we need a talented guy (including women or men) to move us to the new level. Our current test is ok, but it can be stunning. With your help the new Trayers could look like this:

 AREN'T THEY AWESOME?

When it comes to creating an environment, music and sounds are key closing elements. 

Can you imagine the end of Star Wars (Episode 4) when Luke was flying through the Dead Star with Dart Vader on his tail without the music of John Williams? We thought that Mr. William (Johny for their friends) could be a bit too much. But we found a young creative musician that brought what we want for our game. Nothing is better to destroy Trayers than a bit of old classic rock.

We want different pieces of music on different levels. Our music got to be fun. Check out this demos:

Now, let's not forget explosion, destruction, rockets, fire weapons and getting points. This is part of what we do. This is why we need your help to make our game perfect.

As developers, we love creating and playing games. This is our passion. But we want to give a creative response to new generations. We want to use technology to inspire their learning. 

MATH-Commander is an entertainment game for every age. For grown up, it will remember the arcade style at the time that will keep your mind sharp. For younger users, it will inspire the learning of MATH by using basic math calculations to move forward on the levels.

MATH-Commander is challenging. You want to know what comes next. But you need quick-thinking skills to do it. You compete against yourself (at least on the release version), but at the end, the learning process is unavoidable. We are firm believers that only through playing we achieve learning. What can be a more inspiring way to learn and to approach math?

"One of the most exciting sectors for VR is education. The ability to stimulate students in so many ways via the immersive qualities of VR means a huge uplift in retention of information. VR will transform the education market in the next ten years." Dr. Dave Ranyard

The coding for our game is pretty close to the functionalities we want. But there are some significant expenses (well, don't think of "huge" expenses) where we need your support:

  •  First, we wish to create concept art for at least five different Trayers (yes, the horrible Tech-Aliens beings), having just one type of alien is not fun enough. 
  • Second, we need to move this characters to 3D Modeling and create several animations. 
  • Third, we need to finish the coding for the new Trayers and put them into the game. 
  • Fourth, we want to have at least 5 different original Rock themes to immerse our Commanders (the players) into the game's action (nothing like Rock to play a game). 
  • And fifth, we need to finish adjustments of the code to work for iOS and Android in AR and in VR with Cardboards.

Only with your help, we can achieve all the goals we have in mind. THANK YOU for your support. Every coin is important to us. Every reference is invaluable. But the possibility that you are with us sharing this dream... that is priceless.

Wulum Ltd was formed in 2014 by Tony Munoz. In 2017 Dario Carnelutti became part of the company and the development team. Both, passionate developers, always want it to put all their background and imaginations into creating video games. Wulum is that dream become true. 

But game creation is more than coding. MATH-Commander included the talents of Marcus Oriente as the concept artist, Jose Labori as 3D modeler and Freddy Estape as the music composer. This small but efficient team has become the perfect combination to bring our video games to life. 

Wulum started creating games for iOS in 2D. Now, with our current experience in AR and VR - and implementing our games in Unity and Blender - we’re opening new possibilities for our creativity. MATH-Commander is the result of that creativity at work.

Risks and challenges

Game development is an extensive creative process. It starts with a simple idea that it's stretch multiple times until you got something that is good. But "good" is not enough.

Once the idea has shape, you start the concept art of characters and environments. At the same time, you are preparing a coding prototype to test functionality. When you feel the concept is right and you have some starting characters, then you can model in 3D. At this moment you reached the point of no return. That is exciting.

Our team has years of experience working with technology projects. We know what is to work with specific delivery times. We are used to the pressure. Nevertheless, occasionally some small techy issues can delay our schedule for hours or a few days. But we're talking about days in the worst case scenario — not weeks or months.

We have learned a great deal with all our previous games from conception and art until the music and sound effects. We are ready to set a reasonable delivery date and accomplish the task.

In MATH-Commander, we are currently on a very advanced state of coding. Most of its implementation it's shared with the AR version for mobiles. That allows us to be sure about the timeframe for the development process. We learned the hard way of how to create games for single-platform releases. But now, with Unity's introduction, we're able to move over varied platforms without harsh consequences on our timeframe. So, it isn't an issue today to considering multiple deliveries.

Nevertheless, creating a great game is more matter of art than of coding. Well, coding is definitely an art, but if you don't create a beautiful graphic argument for your story, then your game won't reach people's heart and emotions. And although you can have a clear idea of what you want in your head, sometimes you need to give extra time for your concept artists and your 3D modeling team to achieve great results. You can not push the artistic creation process.

For MATH-Commander, a significant part of our budget is going to create awesome characters. We created some primary characters for showing the power of our concept. But we know we can do better with your support. Based on our experience we set a timeframe for this process. But, as an artistic work, it may deviate a few days in the worst case scenario. Again, we're not talking about weeks or months.

One of the few conditions that could be out of our control is the time to check out from of different companies to confirm the release version of our game. For iOS, it takes around three business days; for Android, the process is almost immediately; For Oculus, it can take several weeks - although we have faith that they are making improvements in their times.
