Cliffual

The people of Clifftown perform a yearly ritual where they just pop out of nowhere and start running for their gods.
Jam year: 
2016
Diversifiers: 
Crowd Sourced
No retreat, no surrender!
Take control
One hand tied behind my back
Platforms: 
Web standard (HTML5, Java, JavaScript, Flash)
Technology Notes: 
I used Jammer(https://github.com/jtpio/jammer) which is a library that lets you make a server for multiplayer games very easily, Node.js is used for the server. The game itself is made with Phaser(http://phaser.io). You connect to the game using the messaging app Telegram(https://telegram.org). You can message telegram.me/CliffualBot for more info on that. I used the the node-telegram-bot-api(https://github.com/yagop/node-telegram-bot-api) for handling the bot events.
Installation Instructions: 

To run the server you will need node.js and to listen to the bot you will need to create a bot and get a telegram bot token that you can insert into the "server.js" file where it says <BOT-TOKEN>.

Open the folder in your command-line and run it by typing "node server" then you can open your browser and go to "localhost:5000".

On the bottom-left of the screen there's a questionmark "?", when you hover it you'll see the gameID, then you can connect to that game from the telegram bot by typing "/connect [ID]".
