We were inspired by the randomness of the project idea where the mazes that are generated are constantly new.
What it does
This minigame basically consists of a square player who is trying to run away from the computer controlled enemy square. The computer moves towards the square player using the A* algorithm.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Originally, we were going to create a 3D version of the game with the Oculus Rift for "increased" immersiveness but we realized that it was incredibly difficult to set up.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We're proud that we managed to create a "minimum" viable product in our first hackathon.
What I learned
It's useful to prepare software and large data components beforehand as the internet is incredibly slow.
What's next for Maze Runner
Better UI elements, smoother gameplay, endless mazes.
