For my first #1GAM entry, I made: Tic-Tac_Toe
This isn’t super thrilling, but the non-visible work is what really excited me. Originally this game was going to be multiplayer with the primary objective of learning Durable Objects, a.k.a. websockets, however life took a different turn… Jenna needed an emergency surgery after an ER visit, so I played full-time care taker for awhile and didn’t get much done.
My primary objective with this game was to learn about typescript, redux, and immutable.js. This is all tech that I need for work but don’t have much or any experience with. I was also able to launch the portal using Cloudflare Pages, which I’ve done before, but had a seamless experience again. LMK if you’re interested in this!
As I work on new games, I hope to enhance my old entries. My goal is to make all of my games support online multiplayer, but that may take a few iterations before I can back-port the logic. With Cloudflare, it seems like (basic) multiplayer games, think turn-based, are possible with minimal capital investment so I plan to tinker with that a bit. Serverless websockets could really open some interesting doors, if it works as I’m envisioning…!
