Multiplayer Gaming Test at the Boardgame Cafe

Some of you may have realised that i’m pretty big into gaming – and following on from the WiFi wars event earlier in July I couldn’t stop myself from building something similar! Hosted at Board (Exeter’s awesome boardgame cafe) I’m taking over their “Open Gaming Night” on Tuesday 9th August where people can rock up to play boardgames with friends and strangers alike, but i’m adding an electronic gaming component to it!

What is it?

I built a multiplayer gaming system, where you use your mobile phone to control retro games – but with a twist: You get paired up with a random person, and each of you gets half of the control pad – one of you can jump, the other can move left / right, and you get 20 seconds to make your way through as much of the game until it’s the next pair’s turn!

Here it is in action at the Sundown Demoparty earlier in July:

I built that in a week with nodeJS, socketio and HTML5, so it was a little buggy… if you would like to help me test out a new version of the code, give feedback and to help me work out what devices it works on, please register on the facebook event.

Note: Board Open Gaming Nights are not free, you need to pay to play games at Board. More details on their facebook page.
