We wanted to make some spy themed informative game for this hackathon, so we came up with outro

What it does

You're the agent and you gotta escape your way to stay alive. The only way you can do it is by answering 5 correct questions in a row. Got stuck somewhere? you can get hint in your phone and then use it to answer the question. Answer all 5 questions and dayum, you just did the best outro, as in escape !! You can share your success with your friends in snapchat as a sticker.

How we built it

We built the web app using flask as a framework, and python as its major language. We also used javascript for some functions, and HTML-CSS for the layout of our screens. For sending hints to users, we used Twilio's api that had sentences mapped to their question codes so it would send the relevant hint related to the question, to the user playing our game. We hosted the game on heroku.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into few challenges like time management, properly changing the data in flask, sending hintsfrom twilio and few more.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud that our game is fun to play and fits the theme pretty well. Also that its totally complete is a major relief for us lol.

What we learned

We learnt how to send emails to people using twilio, we also learnt how we can make simple quiz based games on flask and make them aesthetically pleasing in a way.

What's next for outro

We would make it a bit complex and add many more questions to select from. We were also planning if we can get random questions and generate their images and hints in real time through some api, so yea we would probably be focusing on that in the future
