=============================================

Our code needs to have a server sitting in the background, so we need to install a bit of tools to get this to work.

Soon, the game will be hosed on heroku.com. In the meantime, you can follow these instructions:

  1. Install nodejs: http://nodejs.org/
  2. Install development toolchains
  3. Download and unzip the zip from the gamejam website
  4. Setup/Run!
    • linux/osx: setup.sh, then run.sh
    • windows: setup.bat, then run.bat

You can play at http://localhost:3000
