We were inspired by memes, virtual pets, and retro video game sprites.

What it does

You create and play with little animals, feed them, and raise that score!

How we built it

We used glitch as our online collaborative IDE, and using flask we set up a website that used p5.js to draw our pixel babies to the screen. You can even add your own using the sprite editor we used online!

Challenges we ran into

Starting out with a lot of ideas, we had to narrow down our focus. We started with much more central and practical ideas, but in the end, we just wanted to have fun!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of our sprite art, many of them actually drawn by us during our Hackathon time!

What we learned

We learned how to set up flask online, maneuver glitch, and write JavaScript to manipulate the dom. Not to mention our new experience with pixel art animations!

What's next for The Fizzle Fairies Menagerie of Funky Retro Carnivores

We're contemplating a server-side storage of the animals people create, that way you can play with anyone's animals and share them online! We would also like to let people play with their animals together using client to client network communication through our flask server.
