A few weeks ago I posted my LD32 entry, PLASMA, a prototype of a multiplayer mobile game where your unconventional weapon is your “plasmartphone”. It was a more a proof of concept than a game. I’m still working on it but here is a bit more playable version :)

How to play ?

  • Take you phone (Android, iOS, Windows Phone) with internet & GPS activated
  • Take a few friends with their phone (it’a multiplayer game)
  • Go outside, in a parc for instance, take your distances (10m at least) and start the battle !!!
  • Shake your phone to load, point you phone in another player direction & touch “Fire” to shoot

Warning !

  • This is still a prototype, I need feedbacks on every aspects of the game 😉
  • Compatibility : I’m trying to develop a multi-platform game using HTML5 (including geolocation & compass API), Google Map V3 API & FireBase, but some phones might not work well if they are a little old.

It will be hard to top the success of I Am A Ninja (LD22, 50th place) and Cytosine (LD24, 31st place), but I’m going to try my best.

Like my last two games, this one will also be HTML5. I’m not yet sure whether it’ll be canvas2d or WebGL, but I’m leaning towards the simplicity of canvas2d.

My previous two entries were written in raw JavaScript, but this time I’ll be using CoffeeScript instead. It’s just a more pleasant language to work with, and less verbose so quicker to type.

For preparation, I’ve written a tiny Ruby webserver using Sinatra, which uses a Rakefile to automatically compile my assets:

  • CoffeeScript is compiled into JavaScript.
  • SCSS is compiled into CSS, using Compass for its CSS3 mixins (which automatically add vendor prefixes like -webkit- and -moz-).
  • Inkscape SVG files are exported to PNG files.

This makes for the quickest development cycle: just save the file, and refresh the page.

I have three rough game concepts. Here’s to hoping one of them can be bent to fit the theme.

Good luck everyone!
