We had little to no web development experience and were curious about the process of creating a web app. We were given the seed of an idea at the Volhacks brainstorming session and added location functionality
What it does
It's a simple text game that responds to your geolocation when deciding what content to serve you. It uses two locations on UTK's campus (Ayres Hall and Min Kao) to change what a player wouold see when playing the game.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Lack of knowledge regarding web development. Lack of accuracy and consistency from HTML5 Geolocation API. Our site is still struggles to serve the correct content.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
Geolocation without the use of GPS can still be scarily accurate, despite the inconsistent and occasionally inaccurate results.
What's next for Murder On The Hill
We'll use the things we've learned in other geolocation centered apps.
