New year, new interface, new structure

New year, new interface, new structure - online detective unsolved crime game

As you might have spotted, we have prepared an upgrade to the game and the interface - the main aim was to make it more accessible and easier to understand.

One of the main changes allows users to put an e-mail address as login, which previously was causing some problems. Another important change is the way the account is being activated - instead of a link sent to an e-mail address, we switched to sending a code that needs to be entered on the website. This small change should solve the problem some users had with messages ending up in a spam folder on not reaching the e-mail account at all. Also, the password reset option provides the user with a login reminder, which was also causing some problems. There were also smaller changes to the interface, like fixes to missing or misleading headers or data.

Another important change is the new structure of the game - each player is assigned a current skill level (represented by a badge), which will determine which cases are available to open. The aim of that change was to guide new users through easier cases before they will face the real challenging ones - every new user will have to solve the tutorial case before moving on to more complicated cases. There are 5 levels of skill, if you solve a single case from f.e. Level 2, you will gain access to all the cases on Level 3.
