Making an HTML5 Canvas + Node.js + WebSockets + JQuery 2D multiplayer sandbox game.




  1. Clone the repository with git clone git:// wander
  2. Install dependencies with npm install -d
  3. Start the server with node server.js or nodemon server.js if you have it
  4. Point your browser to YOUR_SERVER_IP:8080
  5. Wander around


  • Use the arrow keys to wander around the map, tab to see the player list
  • Lag like hell, chat and interact with other players
  • Give a look to the TODO file for current WIP stuff and future implementations
  • Suggest me how to improve it!

Play it!
