Space Trader web port

Post by crummy on Sat Nov 21, 2015 9:59 pm

Back in the day there was a game called Space Trader, for the Palm Pilot. It was somewhere between Elite and Dope Wars, travelling the stars, tousling with pirates while you ply your trade, and I've been working on a web port.

When I started on this I was interviewing for a Java backend job, and as a result the backend prototype is nearly complete. I have an API up where you can read game state and provide input. It's not something I have experience with, either as a developer or as a consumer, so I'm not totally confident I'm heading in the right direction, but I'll probably find out as the frontend takes shape.

Speaking of the frontend, I've realised I have little talent for frontend development so am building a bare minimum interface, to make the game functionally playable but little else. It's coming along fairly slowly.

* Backend: https://github.com/crummy/spacetrader
* Frontend: https://github.com/crummy/spacetrader-ui
Here's all it looks like so far:


Not exactly artgame status but a project I hope to see released.
