The rising cases of COVID-19 have put the entire world in a depressive state. We took the opportunity as a challenge to bring a smile to people's faces. All you need at this time is to have a good laugh. When trying to help people escape the dull life of lockdown we came up with Boredom-Relief. Our website provides one place where people can get access to random funny YouTube videos and “easy”, definitely not, games!
What it does
The main purpose of this app is to cure your boredom through mini-games and random videos. While the games may be impossible for you to win, you will leave with a smile due to the website’s impracticalities and goofiness. You can check out the countless minutes of random videos and increase your game-skills by playing “easy” AIs in four different games, including; Connect4; TicTacToe; Rock, Paper, Scissors and the Button game.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
- Planning out the project; wireframing (Figma)
- Finding a platform with the ability to collaborate live with others
- Random generation of videos and mini-games
- Researching more efficient ways to write HTML and CSS syntax
What we learned
What's next for Boredom Relief
The next step for Boredom-Relief is to develop and integrate other impractical, time-wasting activities such as; hangman, impossible chess, trivia, and a pointless snake game.
