How did start Chinese Checkers online - Part 2
In July 2020, I went back to France for a holiday in my native town.
At this time, I was still working on Bifup but decided to take half of my free time working on Chinese Checkers online. Many years before, I repeated this pattern. I was starting to work on a project and then giving up to work on a new idea. As a result, I was swimming in the dead sea. (not moving further enough to see the result of my work). I told myself, "not again. This time, I will start small to test the idea.". In September 2020, I worked on the prototype of Chinese Checkers online. At this time, the project was bugged, but I noticed two players registering. I was not even on the third page of Google results. These players were very motivated to try. I was pleased but could not believe it. (first time where one of my ideas was helpful to someone else).
The following month, 30 players registered. At this time, I decided to put a break on Bifup and use my entire free time to develop Chinese Checkers online. Month after month, bugs have been fixed, new features added.
Finally, on the motorway.
In September 2021, we celebrated the first year of Chinese Checkers online. More than ten thousand players joined us this year (crazy).
We built Julia, our AI, and created a new mode called "solo." We also released our mobile app available on iOS and Android and the forum.
Here we are, the end of the beginning. I now have big plans for Chinese Checkers online and will be glad to share the ride with you.
