We wanted to try something new this time, so our team decided to make a website and a game! We wanted to make something that was fun to play and also fun to make. We hope that our website will help you not to be bored. It was quite difficult for us since we have never made a game before for a hackathon, it was our first time.

What it does

We made a website and a unreal engine game in which is connected to google firebase, all your stats data is stored and displayed on the leaderboard, making this a multiplayer game. The purpose of the game is to find your way out of a coranaBot infested world. There are evil robots always on the hunt, for you. You must find your way and pick up the clues that your father has left for you, every step is one step closer to finding the cure.

How we built it

My team and I used unreal engine to make the game and we used HTML and CSS along with Firebase to create the website.

Challenges we ran into

There were many challenges that we ran into, during this build. At first, we didn't know how to build the game, we were thinking about unity and javascript, but we ended up using unreal engine. Unreal engine doesn't have an official firebase plugin, so were not able to directly connect the user's score to the leaderboard, so we had to improvise and make the user input the score manually.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Our team is proud that we were able to create both a website and an amazing game in this limited time period. We have never tried making a game for a hackathon before, so this was our first time.

What we learned

We learned many things during the process of making this project. We learned how to connect firebase with javascript and also how to create unreal engine games.

What's next for RealityEscape

We hope that we are able to integrate RealityEscape into the website in the future so it can't only be played as a desktop game. We also hope to migrate the game to unity so that we can use firebase with it.
