Irish Conqueror — a Laravel PHP Node.js game
The aim of this project was to develop an online multiplayer trivia game where players can answer questions on Ireland in order to claim the counties of Ireland; whoever claims the most counties wins. The game is played in rounds and players are asked a question with four options to choose from as their answer. Questions are based on Ireland, covering multiple themes from geography to history to entertainment and so on. Users are also able to interact with each other through the chat system implemented in the game, creating new connections and possibly new friends.
We might not have achieved everything that we were planning to do but we did improve our programming skills, through working with the Laravel framework, creating Node.js applications and using different types of libraries (express, socket.io, etc.). We faced a few obstacles during the development of this project but we managed to overcome most of them and delivered an application that works to a high standard that we are happy with. With more time and more resources this project would definitely have made it into the game market.
