BrowserQuest is a HTML5/JavaScript multiplayer game experiment.


Documentation is located in client and server directories.


These were tested with node v0.6.3 and browserquest git hash/version of eb63d58fc.

Use your favorite editor to copy/edit config files in the server subdirectory. For example...

$ cat config_local.json
    "port": 9000,
    "debug_level": "debug",
    "nb_players_per_world": 200,
    "nb_worlds": 5,
    "map_filepath": "./server/maps/world_server.json",
    "metrics_enabled": false,
    "memcached_host": "",
    "memcached_port": 11211,
    "event_db_module": "memcache",
    "event_db_host": "",
    "event_db_port": 11211
