Motivation

Two of our developers are crazy Sudoku players, and they usually play on the same phone while commuting. While solving a Sudoku they would usually fight with each other for reasons such as; phone position; absurd amounts of annotations; screen brightness etc. Also after awhile the challenge stop due to the lack of higher difficulty puzzles on the app that they were using.
For these reasons, they decided that they had to create a game that would play the same puzzles cooperatively on mobile devices, and since they owned different phones with different operating systems, they would need to make the game available on multiple platforms and it needed to allow cross platform gameplay. When searching the App Store for "sudoku" you will find more than 3,000 results of games with the same characteristics but none of which features cooperative gameplay.
Nowadays, more and more people play this style of puzzles and this one has already become obligatory in any newspaper. Gamers that play Sudoku or other related games (e.g Crosswords) are creatures of habit, once they get hooked they rarely miss their chance of solving a puzzle. They love to search and interact with other players in order to discuss and discover techniques on how to solve the puzzles.
The premise was simple, to create a Sudoku game that integrated all the usual features on this type of game but allowed any player to cooperatively solve a puzzle with a friend, or if he was stuck, to ask a friend for help on solving the puzzle. Finally the game needed to support any Operating System and any device and allow its players to play together no matter where they were in the world.
Following the motivation and need of the developers, Sudoku Zenkai was born, a game available on Android, iOS, Windows 10, Steam and iitch.io that allows any Sudoku player to play online puzzles with their friends, disregarding the device, platform and location.
