js13kgames-2022

Topic is death.

I turned that into a Tower Defense game.

Architecture

This game follows a Redux-like architecture for state management and React-like ViewModel. Updates to the state are rendered to the DOM. Yes, I don't use <canvas> but HTML and SVG here.

Event listeners dispatch actions to the store to update the state.

There is a snapshot in localStorage. If you observe something odd, chances are clearing the localStorage and reload might fix it.

Ideas for post-competition

Since Heroku is about to sunset free dynos I don't deploy this game there. Therefore I don't implement multi-player. The only challenge there would be match-making.

Due to the architecture, I can replicate actions over socket.io to keep all states in sync. This is the main reason, why store.dispatch() is async.

To make this game more interesting, I thought about some kind of fog of war. This would be masking the game and having the entities decide, which areas are observable.

This project is currently hosted on GitHub. This is not ideal; GitHub is a proprietary, trade-secret system that is not Free and Open Souce Software (FOSS). I am deeply concerned about using a proprietary system like GitHub to develop our FOSS project. I have a mirror on Codeberg and my Gitea. I urge you to read about the Give up GitHub campaign from the Software Freedom Conservancy to understand some of the reasons why GitHub is not a good place to host FOSS projects.
