The goal of this framework is to allow a game author to essentially translate the rules of a game into a series of simple functions that describe how the game state changes when a particular move is made, and the framework takes care of the rest. You will not need to write any networking or backend code.
- State Management: Game state is managed seamlessly across browser, server and storage automatically.
- Prototyping: Debugging interface to simulate moves even before you render the game.
- Multiplayer: All browsers connected to the same game are synced in real time with no refreshes required.
- Game Phases: with different game rules (including custom turn orders) per phase.
- Triggers: Automatic actions when certain game conditions are met.
- Secret State: Secret information (like the opponent's cards) can be hidden from the client.
- Logs: Game logs with the ability to time travel (viewing the board at an earlier state).
- UI toolkit: React components for common game elements (cards etc.).
