Can I make this game using pixi.js

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I took a project which is game development. I have not done game development before. It is not complex game, I was planning to use react with pixi.js to achieve my goals. Since I don't have any experience with pixi.js I would to hear your opinions about whether it is wise choice to make this game using pixi.js with react. 

Let me explain the game a bit. It will be a dart game. First we have configuration screen where user will select game type, target, player information. After setting up these things user can start the game. This is hard the hard part. Each game type can have different designs. There will be animations which shows which player's turn is. After player throws we will have to decrease player's point and show where it landed on dart.

These are example videos and images similar to what I need to achieve.

Is this something doable with pixi.js or should I take a look at some game frameworks out there?

Yes, just do it!

My advice is to use greensock in case you have many animations. 

Useful links:

1. examples https://pixijs.io/examples/

2. wiki https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/wiki/v5-Hacks

3. source code - you know where it is, just clone it and open in separate IDE window to find classes fast. Better see how it works inside than rely on pure docs.

Thanks for your answer. I am planning to create configuration screen with pure react and integrate pixi.js inside game screen where we show this animations. Do you have any suggestion that I should take a look before starting?

Well I'd like that everyone who wants to use pixi for particular project go through examples first and read latest issues and PR's (https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/issues and pull requests) and forum threads, just to feel whats is happenning around :) Usually people are too focused on their particular app and problems and that really narrows their view.
