CERN Accelerator Complex, tower defence Game.

Warning message

You must login to view this form.

Everybody loves tower defence games. Protecting your hearts against wave upon wave of incoming enemies, upgrading your defences, defeating stronger monsters, more upgrades, more monsters... and the circle goes on and on... You know what I mean.

Wouldn't it be interesting though, to change the scenery of the game? Our awesome idea is to create a CERN-themed tower defence game, where instead of towers and traps you have different kinds of accelerator components, like magnets, RF Cavities, etc... Of course instead of creeps you'll be "attacked" by different kinds of particles. And your "defence" won't be based on arrows and stones but on electromagnetic fields. Lastly the maps could be modelled after the specific accelerator/experiment layout.

Now imagine playing that game in a browser, using cutting edge web technologies... We believe that's a game worth playing!

If you too think that it's an awesome idea, then join us to make it a reality!

Skills Being Sought: 

It would be nice to have one or more of the following

  • some ability to create graphics
  • some knowledge of html5,css,javascript,webgl
  • working knowledge of physics who can help make the project more realistic - looking
  • ideas about the project and creativity
  • willingnes to help others procrastinate
  • experience in playing tower defence games
Weekend Goals: 

A working prototype of the game, with enough features to make it addicting.

References and Background Material: 

Content is to be added here, but general references would point to webgl, and to creating graphics and games in javascript.

Comments

Ok, so we've got ourselves a group of 5 people:

  • Anti Asko
  • Luke David Bernard
  • Spyros Gasteratos
  • Georgios Kaklamanos
  • Alex Mourtziapis

We've created a git repo for the project:

https://github.com/northdpole/scaling-happiness

And we continue working!

While some people are working on the code, some of us are trying to create some graphics for the game and also write the information dialogues which will inform the users for the different levels of the accelerator complex.

So if anyone has some graphics design/manipulation skills or is willing to help with the text, they still can join us.
