I love games and during the pandemic found myself playing more online games as a way of staying in touch with friends and family.
To create an online multiplayer game that is accessible and easy to play.
The ease of use for Jackbox Games is especially appealing to me. To play one user must purchase and install the software on their computer however rest of the players can participate from a web browser on any internet connected device.
Smartphones have a lot of sensors! Many of these are also accessible through the web browser.
Due to privacy concerns since iOS 13 Apple has implemented permissions to access accelerometer data.
Would like to make a physics game that is simple and meditative. Can use multitouch and accelerometer data as input.
As a starting point here is a P5.js sketch I made last semester in The Nature of Code.
Building on this:
- Multiple users can give input
- Room number or pairing code
- A simple game mechanic
- Multiple “levels” with visualization variations
