IT’s an  MMO* made with node.js/backbone/three.js/tween.js/underscore/…

… and all the good parts of javascript.

What is it all about?

You are in charge of an evergrowing world in a universe full of evergrowing discs.
But growth comes at a terrible price.

In the advent of your great growth-inducing politics the general disc-populace grows weary of overpopulation and overproduction.
You decide to take the best way forward.
WAR.
War against the unknowingly weak non-blue discs.
Carefully you plan your next aquisitions while balancing your infrastructure spendings with your investitions in green energy and hauntingly large disc-machines of war.

 

What does work:

  • Support for up to 51.00000000000002 players
  • Planets indicate their current production capacity by growing
  • Planets may revolt (red tint)
  • Military and a good investition in green technology help to overcome riots.
  • Attacking

What doesn’t work:

  • There is no chat or ranking.
  • You cannot transfer your all-killing-war-machines to a friendly planet
  • If you tab out there is a high chance your browser might die.
  • Simulation is a bit rough. Hadn’t had time to make animations
  • Same for graphics.
  • Player starting positions can be compromised from time to time. If you can’t grow your disc: reload the page

 

Oh, and the code is horrible. Iam not uber experienced and furthermore obviously needed to reassure myself that Diablo3 won’t ever become a game i could be happy with.

Thanks for your time. Have a blast!

*at least in a realtivély tiny world it would be a MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE experience. Here it’s somewhat of a medium scale multiplayer app.
