Contestant on I Made A Marshmallow.
Appreciated! 48 hours sounds like a long time until you're in the middle of it.
haha nice, maybe we should crowd source the sounds effects ;)
WASD is pretty comfortable for me since most on the PC have that configuration. But we have seen plenty of people struggle with it. Arrow keys was one of those "oh thats easy we can do that after we tackle _" items, and never made it in :P
Thanks for the stars!
It wasn't the WASD so much as the impedance mismatch with the direction the sprite was facing. E.g. I expected W to be "Forward" rather than "Up" and had a hard time convincing my brain otherwise.
Crowd-sound effects would be hilarious. After selecting your player name it could say "Click make a 0.5 second recording of what the bullets from YOUR gun sound like"
What do you think about the concept?
The concept is good, though the security implications are worth considering. You'd need a good assurance of high security for your users.
A direction I think you could take this that would be VERY exciting would be the ability to use it to multicast to a fleet of identical machines. You'd have to be considerate of synch issues, but the ability to edit a configuration file simultaneously across a multitude of machines would be awesome.
I think you misread.
Think of this as a replacement to gnome or kde on your computer.
Indeed I did, though I will admit the idea of a web gui like this as an interface to a PaaS like Nodejitsu, especially if it simultaneously operates on a fleet of clone nodes has me more excited than a HTML5 window manager.
I suppose my own wishful idealism prevented me from thinking clearly as I read your description.
You can do that. :) My code is open-sourced at https://github.com/w3de/nko
Thanks, bryce. We're excited to fix some of the alignment and jump impulse errors as well. It was quite a scramble to finish what we did. I'm glad it was enough for you to enjoy!
