‘Crude Habits’ hits app store

Samuel Langon, a Chico State sophomore entrepreneurship and small business major, has entered the app development world. “Crude Habits” is a mobile game based on the popular game Catchphrase, a word-based guessing game. But Langon gave it an adult twist.

The Orion sat down with Langon to talk about the app’s creation and development.

The Orion: What’s the story behind the creation of “Crude Habits?”

Langon: Over Christmas break, my sister’s boyfriend gave my family a Catchphrase device. My family had a really good time with it and we also played Cards Against Humanity. I realized it was like an adult version of Apples to Apples, so I wanted to make an adult version of Catchphrase.

The Orion: What was the process in bringing the game to the Apple app store?

Langon: The designing phase probably took about a month. Using a program called Xcode, I designed the mobile application and tested it out for a few weeks. I bought a developer account for $100, and submitted it to the app store.

The Orion: What’s one of your most memorable moments from working on “Crude Habits?”

Langon: Going to my friends and trying to come up with words to put in the game. They gave me pretty funny suggestions, some that I couldn’t use and some that I’ve used for the app.

The Orion: What’s next for you?

Langon: Now that I have a developer account I want to create more, whether it be games or other platforms.

“Crude Habits’” clean interface makes for simple game play. With five categories and hundreds of words within each, it is a game that can last a while with a lot of variety.
