nodeGame

Fast, scalable JavaScript for large-scale, online, multiplayer, real-time games and experiments.


The Good parts

  • Open source and open standard (HTML5)
  • Modular framework (server / client / window / widgets / games)
  • Low / medium level of programming required
  • Powerful API
  • Integrated NDDB Javascript database
  • Server can run multiple games at the same time
  • Powerful and customizible waiting rooms
  • Monitor interface
  • Works on mobile devices and tablets
  • Bots (for playing) and Phantoms (for testing)
  • Installation is required only for the server, clients just need their browser windows
  • Integrates smoothly with other libraries (e.g. jQuery, D3.js, etc.) and web services, such as Amazon Mechanical Turk

Quick Start

  1. Download the latest version of node.js for your platform
  2. Download the latest version of git for your platform
  3. Download installer, and install nodegame: node nodegame-installer
  4. Enter installation directory.
  5. Start the server with the command: node launcher.js
  6. Open one tab pointing to localhost:8080
  7. Select Ultimatum game
  8. Open more tabs, or start a bot through the waiting room interface
  9. Check the monitor interface at localhost:8080/ultimatum/monitor
