Meteommo

by Jhelle - Compo Entry

My attempt at learning Meteorjs in a weekend. Wanted to create some minimalistic mmorpg. In the end I mainly battled meteorjs into doing what I wanted it todo and had to cut almost all the features.

It ended up not really being a game. Did learn a lot of meteor so I guess that was a succes. Be prepared for lack of features, layout, graphics, music. Sorry all :)

I'm not really sure I can rate this, but well done, it's definitely multiplayer :)

Seems that there isn't much to do without other players in, except for walking west and east. And spamming the chat. :P But it's definitely working, sort of. :D Props for it! :D

Pretty ambitious to take on an mmo in 48 hours, but the effort is pretty impressive. Wouldn't take much to turn this into something interesting and robust. Great job!

Good effort, I hope you learned something from it. Maybe next time, go for something a little bit smaller so you can have more gameplay to it.

Nice idea, but unfortunately, as you have stated, it was very, very unfinished. What you did have seemed to work pretty well, although I couldn't go north or south (unknown if this is intentional or not), and the chatbox went off the bottom of the screen a ways. Still, for learning a completely new framework, it ain't bad.

A good start, but too bad is not playable

I'd been thinking about trying Meteor and...this entry has convinced me to try to make the time for it. :) Cool prototype for 48 hours learning everything from scratch. Thanks for posting it!

Dude, you're crazy for making a MMO in like 24 hours (even more so considering that in those 24 hours you gotta eat, pee and sleep).

You must sign in to comment.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
