Chapter 14: Releasing the game

He had just gotten his licence. He remembered that his college would start after a month or so. He decided to buy a bike with the money he had left. After spending about $17,000 in his college fees and renting servers he had about $8,000 left in his account.

He decided to buy a bike. He had actually decided to buy the back earlier to take Pallavi around the valley for a spin but ever since the incident, he decided to buy it later.

He had already decided what bike he wanted to buy. He told Supriya that he was gonna buy a bike. Supriya was a bit surprised and happy that maybe Shuvam might coming out of the trauma he suffered due to the Pallavi incident.

He went to a KTM bike showroom. He wanted to buy a KTM RC 390. It cost $7,000 dollars. It was a fairly nice bike with 20kmpl mileage and it had a top speed of 179kmph. But the thing was the bike only had a fuel capacity of 9.5 litres, which was something Shuvam didn't like. But he still bought this instead of the KTM duke 390 because of its sports bike like design. The RC reminded him of the bikes he saw on those racing games he used to play with his cousin.

He just straight up asked for the bike and its price and paid $7000 for it. He straight up swiped his debit card.

He went back to the apartment in the bike. He went inside his room. Everything except the zombie AI was done when he ordered the programmer bot to make the game uncrackable. The game was played using server and the internet. He asked the programmer bot to make the server and the game impenetrable. As for anyone that might try to hack the servers, he decided to place the attacker hacker bot in the server to counter attack any hackers.

Shuvam then went ahead and made a website anonymously. He decided to upload the game here. The game still needed about a day to get functional. Shuvam then ordered Andy to make a website for him. He thought that he needed an alias in order to upload the games.

" Andy, name the website ' hoodgames '. "

He decided to make his alias hood. He quickly uploaded the trailer for the game that he had prepared. He also uploaded a bit about the game and also uploaded the computer specifications required to play the game.

He still maintained his routine and went to the gym. He had been constantly working out and had also taken fat reducing protein shakes. It had been a huge help. Currently his body had gone from 15% body fat to about 6-7 %. It was about 6-7 kilograms of fat.

Next day the game was complete. The game in actuality took 50-60 Terabytes of data because of the wide number of 3D models, animations, etc. But after being compressed and storing most of the things in the personal server of the game, the server for ongoing projects (the 100TB space one ) was empty and the server for the game (200TB one ) had about 150 TB space left. This could let about 7 million people play simultaneously without any difficulties but it would be a drag if more people played.

He decided to increase the crystal war server space after the number of simultaneous users ever hits 5 million.

The setup of the game was 5 GB. It was fairly low if compared to how massive the map was and the quality of the game.

Shuvam decided to play the game. He opened the game. There were only NPC's here. He was the GM. So he just made a character with insane stats and it could fly too. He linked this account using his iris. Only he could use this account. No one else and this also prevented people from making multiple accounts as this game used the recognition system to recognize the user while registering the account and used it while logging the user in the game.

He flew around a bit. He was listening to the growling noises the zombies were making. He saw various mutated animals. When he flew over a stronghold, the people in the stronghold started shooting at his character but no can do. He was OP character in this world. He smirked while he thought.

He was extremely satisfies with this world he had created. After all, the people in the stronghold shot at him as they felt afraid of this unknown being which could fly. He was extremely satisfied with their reaction. On the other hand, he might have erased this stronghold from the map if the NPC down below were like those robotic AI's in their games.

He realized he didn't have a gaming laptop to play games while he was not home. He bought a predator laptop worth a little over $1000.

He decided to release the game now. He uploaded the game. After a few minutes the game was uploaded. He was looking forward to how the people would be thrilled to play his game. He then grew ecstatic over the fact that those so called crackers would not be able to crack his game or hack into his games.

He was smiling when Andy said, " Stupid, no one knows about your stupid website or the game. How will anyone play it when they don't know about it. You haven't advertised about the game. "

His smile froze when he heard this. He quickly checked the views on the trailer he uploaded on YouTube yesterday. It was about 25 and the people were complaining that he had just uploaded a animation of some movie not a game trailer. Noone believed that there could be such a game with such low PC specs and awesome graphics.

He also checked the views on his websites, he shuddered when he noticed it was only 18, even lower than the video on YouTube. He was starting to grow depressed.

Suddenly, he had an evil grin on his face as he thought of an idea. He quickly said, " You stupid machine. How could I have not thought about it. I have the perfect plan…hehe…".
