drop_dead is a multiplayer HTML5 Canvas/WebSockets experiment that I am playing with, in order to familiarise myself with those technologies. I will open-source it when I have got it to a point in which it is usable at all — and that should be soon. View Source if you are really too impatient for that.
I will try and keep an updated version available here, but it will be completely broken, and equally unfinished, at various points in time.
The basic concept of the game is this:
- Players try to drop blocks on other players heads
- If you are dropping blocks on runners, points for hitting them
- If you are a runner, points for climbing on droppped blocks and reaching the top
- Winners from both sides are players which have the most points
It is a bit of a combination of some currently popular ideas.
Try it out, and let me know what you think about it on twitter.
