I have often found a squeaking mouse devoured by a snake in my bathroom, which inspires me to reflect on the rat race and that biblical perennial snake down the drain hole, always in conversation. While Adam may have hated that snake, the rat race continues in a hypothetical gaming universe, from level one to level ten, with the imminent danger of being food to that reptile.
What it does
A configurable snake and ladders game, with talking mice and a snake, play this interactive VUI game in html5 and Alexa, there may just be some traps and you may end up starting again or plain food to a hungry snake!
How I built it
Version 1.0 uses APLA with voice flow and synthetics music with Melisma and other synthesizers, mixed with speech. Version 2.0, in development integrates AR.js and A-Frame content with the VUI using the web API.
Challenges I ran into
- Mixing the music, similar to present games as background music.
- Integrating AR.js
- Spooky effects in the game, rewriting code to stability.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Integrating gaming with VUI, VUI base gaming.
What I learned
API integration in voiceflow, adding flow integrations and scoping, best practices. Complexity of intent classifiers,
What's next for The Pipe Snake.
AR.js integration with voiceflow., version 2.0 is under development.
