Game development is a neverending rabbit hole. One of these rabbit holes are io games :d I always wanted to build something along those lines so here we are.
What it does
It's a game server where multiple people can move around! (yes I wasn't able to implement basically anything lol)
How we built it
Everything runs on nenji.js, from the websockets to the rendering. There's also some custom js, html and css.
Challenges we ran into
I'm pretty new to JS, so learning basically anything from the library to installing packages was painful ;-; I also tried to host the code on google cloud because that would let people actually play on it and I could NOT get node and npm to work no matter what I did from changing the node version to manually importing required packages :(
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Considering how new I am to js I'm honestly kinda impressed on how much of the code actually functions! Also I had to lookup so many things related to bash and the linux terminal and that was fun!
What we learned
Going solo in something I have no experience in is a bad, bad idea D:
What's next for A Boundless Ocean
Make it a proper game!
