I made a small game – Sumur

I made a small game a while back. I made it in C++, since well, that is how things get done, and all was fine. Until I wanted to change stuff in it and it all just became complicated (my code was a bit of a mess). So I tried out Unity, Unreal and Godot, and in the end settled on using Godot.

So here it is. A small math puzzle I made when thinking of ways to help my daughter with her math.

The game is a bit more complex than it needs to be (implementation wise), but I wanted to test making a networked game. So this game is running in a browser but has a server backend (also written in Godot) that is running on IBM Cloud Engine and that in turn has a database/API written in Django-REST on pythonanywhere. In theory, this should all scale pretty well if that would ever be needed 🙂

If you feel like playing it, just log in with whatever username you want and a password. If the username doesn’t exist a user is created. Else you just get an error so you have to chose another name. Then select a game and play. The highscores are live, so your see how you are doing compared to everyone else that has played.
