A simple but powerful Agar.IO clone built with socket.IO and HTML5 canvas on top of NodeJS, with the purpose to show LIX potential.
You can simply click one of the buttons below to easily deploy this repo to Bluemix or Heroku:
To run / install this game, you'll need:
After cloning the source code from Github, you need to run the following command to download all the dependencies (socket.IO, express, etc.):
After downloading all the dependencies, you can run the server with the following command:
The game will then be accessible at
http://localhost:3000 or the respective server installed on. The default port is
3000, however this can be changed in config.
If you have Docker installed, after cloning the repository you can run the following commands to start the server and make it acessible at
docker build -t lixgar_io . docker run -it -p 3000:3000 lixgar_io
This is a clone of the game Agar.IO powered by the LIX Platform. Someone said that Agar.IO is a clone of an iPad game called Osmos, but we haven't tried it yet. (Cloneception? :P)
No. This game belongs to the open-source community, and we have no plans on making money out of it nor competing with anything. But you can of course create your own public server, let us know if you do so and we can add it to our Live Demos list!
Can I deploy this game to my own server? Sure you can! That's what it's made for! ;) The true power of this game will be unleashed soon :) stay tuned. When it will happen, be ready to upgrade your deployed server to the latest version :)
I don't like HTML5 canvas. Can I write my own game client with this server?
Of course! As long as your client supports WebSockets, you can write your game client in any language/technology, even with Unity3D if you want (there is an open source library for Unity to communicate with WebSockets)!
Yes you can.
