Develop for LusioMATE

Lusio welcomes all game developers to use its Unity3D plugin and develop Lusio games. You can adopt an existing game or create a new one from scratch. Lusio buys your compatible game and promotes it within children with a disability who need to do physio every day.

How LusioMATEs working?

LusioMATE (Motivating Activity Therapy Entertainment) is a motion sensor that can connect to any smart devices via Bluetooth V4. Having 2 LusioMATEs enables you to calculate a relational angle between them and this angle can be used as a game input.

Occupational therapists or physiotherapists are able to create Prescription Gaming for clients, the prescription then will appear on Lusio games and children can follow their doctor's instructions to do the necessary exercises while they are playing games.

What is LusioConnect?

LusioConnect is a Unity3D plugin that makes Lusio developer's life easy! It handles connecting to devices via Bluetooth, identifying the player, fetch Prescription Gaming, producing games input, recording games scores and many more. Using LusioConnect you don't need to do anything but making an awesome game for children who are waiting for it.

How to start?

Email us at armin@lusiorehab.com and let us know what game you like to adopt or create. We will provide you with the LusioConnect plugin, its documentation and one or more sample code including some useful UI designs for showing the prescription or managing the connections and a simulator for our hardware. We need to agree on the project time frame and then sign a simple contract and then we can start. 

Frequently asked questions:

1 - Do I need a pair of LusioMATEs to test the final game? 

No, it's not necessary. The plugin lets you imitate the LusioMATEs using a keyboard which is enough for developing. Also, we will provide you LusioMATE's simulator app that converts your mobile phone to a LusioMATE (with some limited features, but enough for development purposes) see this video to find more:

2 -  Can I adopt games from the Unity Asset Store for Lusio?

 Yes, we will buy the project if its copyright is available, then you can work on it for us. It's just like adopting your own existing games for Lusio. We also have a list of asset store games that we like to have them with it our games, so you can pick one from it and adapt it for us.

 

3 -  What's the preferred platform for Lusio? Android or iOS?

Well, the answer is both! We need games to be available on both platforms. So please DON'T use any single platform stuff in your project :)

 

4 - What's the Lusio's financial model for developers?

For adopting existing games from the Unity Asset Store, Lusio pays $50 to $200 depends on the project and offers it free to their clients. For creating a new game from scratch, we need to negotiate the project cost.

Separate from free games, Lusio can offer purchasable games to their clients and forward them to the App store or Play store to buy. So it's also possible for developers to adopt or design a game for Lusio and sell it on the stores themselves. If you are interested in this model, just contact us and let's check how can we do it together.

  

5 - How Lusio clients notify that a new game is available?

All people using the Lusio ecosystem use a central app called LusioHub. They can check their prescription gaming, their progress and the best scores. It's the main place people can find and download new games.
