I had the inspiration from the game while scratching my friend's back, then I quickly prototyped the game, and launched it in a few months.

The process:

  • Prototype game mechanics in Unity

  • Find a bunch of friends to take their back pictures

  • Record the satisfying voices of these friends saying 'left, right, down, up, ohh yes that's the spot'

  • Give artistic twists to the friends' backs so they look like multiple people

  • Find background images online such as: the Whitehouse, International Space Station, on a pizza, so player unlocks locations as they progress.

  • Find images of scratching tools such as dish sponge, cactus, wooden hand, etc, also for player to unlock

  • Find sound samples of scratching, chafing, brushing, mostly record them myself.

  • Have a lot of fun while doing all of these ^_^
