In the dark world of 2054, an alien species has blocked out the sun, harvesting it for energy. You control a NodeCopter foraging for food and avoiding the zombie bats.
The first player to join controls a NodeCopter in a voxeljs world. Your objectives are twofold: collect as many (literal) sitting ducks as you can, to feed yourself, and also avoid the ravenous zombie bats intent on eating your delicious NodeCopter batteries. You can use positional audio to hear the bats coming, but your nightvision is limited.
Any other players that join while there is already a NodeCopter act as alien observers walking around the world. They can watch the NodeCopter travel around and avoid bats, and give him advice (helpful or otherwise) via the chat screen.
There are movement instructions in the lower-right corner once the game starts!
The audio works in Chrome or Windows Firefox, but the world is visible in Mac Firefox too. IE does not work due to lack of Web Audio support.
Please use headphones if you are in Chrome!
(Why only Windows Firefox, and not Mac? Because we used MP3s for the sound, which Mac Firefox doesn't support yet.)
A huge debt to voxeljs and all related libraries.
Browserify, as always, was a pleasure to work with.
Socket.IO had our back when it came to syncing state between the server and multiple clients.
Voting is now closed.
Thanks, and agreed. We ran out of time before we could add the ability for the copter to shoot at the bats among lots of other ideas we had.
