New multiplayer papervision game

I’ve just released my entry into the Nonoba Multiplayer API Kick Off competition. It’s a multiplayer take on the old memory cards game where you have to turn over pairs of cards and try to remember what was under each one. The multiplayer aspect makes it much more frantic and fun as other players are looking at the same cards at the same time as you and you don’t want them to steal your pairs!

It will probably make more sense if you try it out yourself so go ahead and click the image below to play multiplayer memory mayhem!
My good friend Leigh Kayley did the designs (including illustrating all of the cool animals) and I built the game using Papervision, PureMVC, GTween and the Nonoba multiplayer API.

While I was building the game I did a little prototype for the score board transitions using papervision which you can see by clicking the image below. Click anywhere in the movie to give a random player some random points (and so maybe rearrange the scores) and press any keyboard key to toggle some mouse following behaviour.

Unfortunately in the game you can’t really see the 3d transitions on the scores so I thought I’d upload this for people to look at. And I’ve also uploaded the source code for anyone who is interested. It’s probably not the best because it was a prototype stuck together quickly but it may be useful to someone…


I’m pleased to say that Multiplayer Memory Mayhem won third prize in the multiplayer kickoff competion on Nonoba… Yay!
