Blindtest

Blindtest is a multiplayer musical game (up to 16 simultaneous players). This is a very early version and surely contains bugs.

This project was initially made for the BeMyApp Deezer contest (48h hackathon).

Gameplay

  • The main screen plays a 30sec audio sample of a random song
  • 4 possible answers are displayed
  • with their mobile phone, players have to guess who is the singer of the song

Installing

  • Get the source git clone git://github.com/mauricesvay/Blindtest.git
  • cd Blindtest
  • Install dependencies (socket.io, express, sqlite3) with npm install .

Starting the game

  • node app.js
  • open http://localhost:8080/spectate in your browser. It is now the main screen.
  • each player can now join the game at http://MAIN_SCREEN_IP_ADDRESS:8080/
  • when all players are ready, you can start the game on the main screen.

TODO

  • Start a new round when a round is finished (so you don't have to restart the app)
  • Let users join anytime
  • Let users create "rooms"
  • Let users login with a FB or Twitter account
  • Let users select a playlist to choose songs from
  • Implement lag compensation
  • Play audio on clients
  • Make it easier to change options

Technical details

  • Audio samples and tracks info come from Deezer API
  • Songs are picked randomly among french charts (1956-2012)
  • Real time connection is made with socket.io
  • The app has been tested on a Mac (server), iPhone (client), iPad (client) and is known for working on some Android devices (client).
