I'm a huge fan of horror movies, books, games, etc. and do enjoy myself a good jumpscare. But I realized there are only so many jumpscares out there, and one day I might run out of juicy jumpscares to get my heart racing! Hence, I came up with the solution to build a website that will forever generate original jumpscares.
What it does
Jumpscares are generated based on two inputs you feed the website, one for the image and one for the sound effect. The program will search the web for the image and then the audio file, and present them to you at the same time to give you a hearty spook! Ideally, the user will search scary things like "Exorcist baby" and "Psycho theme", but it is possible to get a picture of puppies paired with Marvin Gaye's Let's Get it On.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
I spent a couple hours trying to get the Google image search API to work before giving up and settling for Bing's service. Other than that the project went smoothly.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I created (as far as I can tell) the world's first customizable jumpscare generator, which hopefully can be of interest to fellow jumpscare enthusiasts!
What I learned
What's next for Jumpscare Generator
Give the whole world a heart attack.
