Face’m Poker aims to bring the real world interaction back into online poker. Utilizing a Python backend, websockets, XCode and TokBox we created a fully functional poker client that streams a video feed from your opponents front facing camera directly into the game. From there you can toggle your opponents stream on or off if you are trying to call their bluff or are just sick of looking their face.
We have won the competition in SF and are looking to get YOUR VOTES so we can beat the respective winners in Berlin and Paris so spread the word.
However, we all came together over the course of last weekend to create something unique and work together and every team involved did just that. Congratulations to all participants and thank you for all the your hard work the demos were fantastic and pushed the envelope of what a group of misfits can put together in 48 short hours, cheers!
Our team was formed on Friday evening on February 8th, 2013 at the beMyApp hackathon held at Sandbox Suites co-working space, bringing video poker to mobile.
Chromaniac is a free iPhone and Android game for casual and hardcore gamers, wherein you control the fluid’s color to absorb the drops of corresponding hue. Be careful of mixtures: if a blue and a yellow drops fall in the same time, you have to select green. If you choose the wrong color, the container fills. If you make combos, it empties. If the container overflows, you lose.
Dupe (short for “duplicate”) is a local multiplayer game for 2-4 players on a single touchscreen device. Each player chooses a colour at the start, and the colours are randomly distributed across a randomly-selected play area. During the game, players have to watch their own colour, and replicate short patterns. Because the colours are randomly distributed across the board and all players share the play area, they must not only watch their own colour squares, but also deal with the hands of other players which may be in their way. The player who correctly replicates the most patterns in a 60-second game wins.
The random distribution of colours means that Dupe stays interesting, as boards are different each time. There are boards designed for 2, 3, and 4 player modes, and a board layout is randomly selected at the beginning of each game.
Because of its use of vector graphics and responsive design, Dupe will scale to perfectly fit any size of device or tablet. Dupe aims to make the device what board games used to be – a social experience for all ages, involving game play and physical space.
