- Networking Lead, Project Manager
Chimaira is a top down shooter that requires 4 players to operate one ship and gun down waves of enemies. One player drives and the other three man the turrets. My team and I created this for a project in our Multi-User Media Spaces class in order to explore networking with games. We used a hybrid authoritative server model to provide the best networked play experience we could. We explored chatless communication by adding a ping system and encouraged the players to use it by zooming in on the pilot's camera giving them less vision of the overall map.
