GIANT ROBOTS SMASHING INTO OTHER GIANT ROBOTS

Play with Giant Robots

A few of us participated in the Node Knockout this weekend. Our team built a real-time, multiplayer tower defense game named after this very site.

We’re all fairly new to Node, but it was a breeze working with express, a Sinatra like framework, and socket.io, a socket library with several transports for cross-browser support. The client uses canvas, CSS and JavaScript with some fancy graphics. We’re really looking forwarding to working on it more after the voting ends this Friday.

If you can find time between games, vote for it and the other awesome entries. And if you participated this weekend in an attempt to win some awesome gloves let us know what libraries you used.
