I am launching a new game today called Memokid. The purpose of the game is to train your memory, and it can appeal to anybody from 3 to 103 ! Here are some of the highlights of the game:
- You can choose from eight decks of cards: food, animals, transportation. One of the decks even features animated cards. Some of the decks were made thinking of young kindergarten children who need to familiarize themselves with digits and letters.
- You can have between one and four players, and if you have no partners available, the also game features an AI with 5 levels of difficulty.
- The games by default requires you to remember pairs, but you can make it much more challenging by selecting triplets or quadruplets, or easier by selecting the number of cards in the game.
- The game works on any device, including tablets and large television screens. It is available in english and in french.
From the technical point of view, the game is a departure from other development stacks I have been using. It is made entirely using ES2017 and webpack, with a full redux / react stack, and of course SVG and web-animations. I am not currently releasing the source code as I have granted exclusivity for the time being to the eveil-et-savoirs partner site, but I plan to eventually release it in open-source in a few months.
