Documenting my struggle to make videogames, amongst other nonsense

Flappy Bird

Playable demo.

Another one from Dev Bootcamp. I’d link to the source code here (it’s on my Github), but it’s so bad that I’m afraid someone might have a stroke.

There was a hackathon that they were hosting one weekend, and I decided it would be fun to go in and participate. I ended up working with Chris Prater and Dustin Fox, and we were given 6 hours to make something. We opted to make a clone of the game Flappy Bird because why not.

I think it’s pretty cool, although I don’t think anyone else will appreciate its beauty. It’s functional, but if I’m going to be honest, it needs a complete rewrite in a framework that’s not terrible. None of us knew Javascript at the time, and we opted to go with a game engine called Wade which is, again, terrible.

All the artwork was done by me except for the bird, which was done by Chris Prater. Such a beautiful bird, too.
