We were inspired by the game "Among Us" as well as the world around us. Being in the world that we live in with Covid-19 dictating how we can live we thought it would be fun to have a game that could bring people together.
What it does
This project has two players that move around a screen collecting coins to increase their scores. It is supposed to bring some fun to those who play it.
How I built it
We built the game using P5JS and drew the players as well as the game board. We used socket.io to allow users to connect online over the internet. The back end is by node.js and we are using google cloud to host the site as well as run the server.
Challenges I ran into
We ran into issues with Socket.io and getting the players to move properly. It was also very hard to get everything to look nice as well as functional.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud that we were able to use the time to learn some new skills. Almost everything we did was brand new to us and we have had fun learning how to do things.
What I learned
I personally learned how to draw a game and make things look pretty good. I think the biggest thing I learned is how to work in a team better and hope that one day I can use these skills to help others.
What's next for Quarantine and Game
We are planning to make the game better. Implement multiple rooms and allow players to chat while playing.
