OCTOPI EVERYTHING is an 8 player game developed by during the first MolyJam held March 30th to April 1st 2012.
The game can be played on a single computer with 8 players, each one taking a key.
The game can also be played using other browsers for controllers. For example 8 iPhones, Android phones, iPads or notebooks. To do this you need to have node.js 0.6.1. Here are the steps
Go to the node.js page and download and install node.js
Download and install git from the git site.
Open a terminal, shell or command prompt. cd to the folder of your choice then type
git clone git://github.com/greggman/octopus.git cd octopus node server.js
Figure out the IP address of your machine.
for osx see here.
for windows see here.
for linux you probably already know.
Make sure each phone is on the same WiFi.
On each phone, open a browser and go to http://addressofserver:8080/play.html
For example my address looks like http://192.168.1.73:8080/play.html
In the top left corner of the game it will show how many people have connected. Once they are connected click the mouse on the main machine to start the game.
You probably need at least 4 people to be able to control the octopus.
