PMR got to know about the Youngest Game Developer of Pakistan and we had to get all the details. Faizullah is only 16 and already has a game available on iOS and Android.
About Myself And Education:-
Faizullah: My name is Faizullah Arain and I am 16 years old. You can call me the Youngest Cross Platform Game Developer of Pakistan. I have completed my Matric from APSACS. As we all go through the phase of vacations after matric. Some prefer to waste it doing nothing. I prefer to learn something. I already planned my game a month ago but due to exams, I decided to learn and develop it after matric in vacations. I remember that it was my last paper when I came home and start Googling how to develop games. This is where it all started. I spent countless hours learning game development through YouTube, Google etc. After I completed my learning, I developed a simple but difficult indie game called JumpNCatch which is now available on iOS and Android.
About the game:-
Faizullah: It is all about testing your mind. What you need to do in this game is that many balls of different colours are moving horizontally. But you only need to catch the black ball, if you touch another ball you will die instantly. If you think it’s easy, give it a try!
Faizullah: You can say coding is in my blood. From my childhood, I don’t remember playing outside while my friends do. I used to spend all of my time o the internet. I remember I was only 12 when I created a website for my fan page. And from there my journey started. Then I joined Aptech to learn Website Development when I was 13. But after 1 year, I left without completing my course because my parents realised that my studies are getting disturbed. After Aptech, I continued my learning through Youtube and Google. To be honest, I love to code over other stuff. I must say, never lose hope and faith in you. Aim high and you will achieve it.
Why I designed a game:-
Faizullah: You get inspired by many apps and games, which were nothing in the beginning but now they all are famous. Similarly, I got inspired by many games such as Flappy Bird, Color Switch, Impossible Rush etc. Then, I decided to develop a game which will catch people’s attention and heart. Something which my game is already doing and finally developed a game JumpNCatch at the age of 16.
Downloads and people response:-
Faizullah: I got 50+ downloads in iOS and 50+ in android in my first week. As I just launched it this month, so I hope for more. People, mainly outsiders and my friends, are loving it. They all are very supportive and proud.
Future plans and Ambitions:-
Faizullah: I have many plans in future such as to make my parents more proud as there are already developing new and more attractive games than JumpNCatch. To establish a software house soon in Karachi, Pakistan, Inshallah. And much more other plans. I aim to be in the list of youngest successful Game Developers of the world.
