shadows — Multiplayer Shadowy Halloween Maze Game!
Welp, I misread the timestamp on the bramjam, so I guess I can't submit this, but I'm posting it here anyway! ( @bramley that is right, correct?)
This was a little experiment in raycasting and FOV graphics. The goal is to get to the green light at the end of the maze... the problem is that you only have a tiny lantern which casts light in one direction! So, it's basically a maze game where you can't see the goal, only what you could see in real life. Sounds fun, eh? :D
There is a server, so you can race your friends to the end. Additionally, you can drop beacons to help others out... provided that you're going the right way!
- WASD/Arrow keys to move
- SPACE to drop beacon
@fuzzyastrocat well the point of having it on the server is so people don't cheat, because that's really what makes multiplayer difficult.
I mean with raycasting on the client side, although from a efficiency standpoint it might make sense, but people are able to cheat the main theme of your game which is quite unfortunate
