OCTOPI EVERYTHING

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.

Click here to play.

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

  1. Go to the node.js page and download and install node.js

  2. Download and install git from the git site.

  3. 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
    
  4. Open http://localhost:8080/octopus.html in your browser.

  5. Figure out the IP address of your machine.

    for osx see here.

    for windows see here.

    for linux you probably already know.

  6. Make sure each phone is on the same WiFi.

  7. 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

  8. 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.
