Elvarion - HTML5 MMORPG


Recommended Posts

Hello, just wanted to share some of the progress on a HTML5 MMORPG game I'm developing. It's still in early stages and progressing well. It's called Elvarion. Here's a sneak peak video of the smooth per pixel movement, attack from a projectile generated server side with particle effects.

Technology used

Animations
- PIXI.js animations (been thinking about Spine... but maybe later)
Rendering
- PIXI.js
- PIXI.js particle effects
- WebGL
Sound
- Howler
Language
- Javascript and Node
Map Editor
- Tiled
Network
- Socket.io
- Nengi.js
DB
- MongoDB

You can find us on Discord or on reddit.

Thanks!

Looks good! HTML5 mmorpg is a great project/challenge for learning tons of advanced stuff in computer science in general! It covers all the basis.

One piece of advice i'd give, if you want to go to production with your MMO, switch socket.io for something lighter and way faster, I would consider even switching language to something like Go or C++! Check out uWebsockets (micro websockets) for C++.

Thanks for the encouragement and suggestion. I will have to do more research on using uWebsockets. Haven't coded in C or C++ in ages. lol There's still lots to do and lots of challenges ahead in building the game and having efficient sockets/communication between server and client is one of them.
