Nova
Multiplayer Online Battle Arena Game of spaceships.

Our game has evolved significantly since its inception in 2018. We initially developed it using pixel art sprites and graphics. However, as we progressed, we learned to work with 3D models in Blender and other file formats such as .obj, which allowed us to enhance the game's visual appeal.

In 2019, we decided to recreate the game in a 3D environment using Blender and Game Maker Studio. Despite facing technical challenges, we were able to successfully integrate both technologies, resulting in a 3D game with impressive visual effects.

As the backend developer, I initially used PHP and the Ratchet.io socket library to create the game server. However, I faced difficulties while developing the AI, which prompted me to explore other options. I conducted a small test on Node JS and was pleased with the results, particularly its ability to create AIs quickly and efficiently. We made the switch to Node JS as our game server technology, and it has proven to be a reliable and scalable option, allowing us to create a fast and efficient game server.

This project is a Game started on 2018-07-14 and the technologies involved in the making of it are the following

Node JS

Socket.IO

SQLite

React

Aseprite

Game Maker Studio 1

Electron

Pixel Art

3D

Blender
