Thanks for taking a look!
Thanks for the vote Charlie! Looking forward, we want to explore throttling and choosing between ads and mining as more practical options. This was supposed to be a proof of concept :)
Thanks for the kind words! We have a pretty much fully working version ready to push once voting ends. Just needed that extra hour - but thats what its always like right?
Yes, thank you for the feedback. All of us are really keen to get the working version up there eventually. We just lost out in those last few hours.
Thanks so much! We had a lot of fun building it (though I admit that I was getting pretty stressed towards the end). I don't think any of us want to see it languish, so you should expect additional polish and improvement. =)
If you type in npm install tut -g we built a whole package management system. The json file is loaded from github to confirm ownership when updates are published, like Bower :)
The listing itself is just a pretty view of the tut.json files which we pas and store in a DB
I hop this clarification helps, we put a lot of work into the CLI package manager :) http://github.com/bcoe/tut
Wrote that from my phone, excuse the typos :) I implore you to checkout the tut CLI tool though, I think it's exactly what you said we are lacking.
Glad you liked it! Our goal was to make a simple easy to pick up fighting game. Also, we wanted to incorporate phones with touch/swipe capabilities. Having a simple control scheme allowed us to have some nice swipe motions (up, left, right) to control the character.
The interesting thing about this game is there is some amazing depth to the game play. A few of the players have literally over 1000 kills and have become very good at baiting, spacing, and baiting (jumping without attacking) All important techniques in the game. :-)
Be sure to try using a phone that supports touch. You can bring up the game on a computer and use your phone as a controller. Just navigate to nodekick.com on the phone and swipe upwards to spawn your character :-)
Thank you! Kids like to steal...I wish we had Rikoru when we were kids ;)
That is awesome to hear. Thank you very much!
bl.ocks.org was a huge inspiration, and we've used it extensively. I always wanted to be able to do it live though, and not have to paste big CSV files and deal with cross-domain and other such problems - leading to this idea.
Would love to hear what else you think we could to improve it!
