Here’s a selection of apps we built using Hemlock technology. We’re eager to see what you will come up with!
The drawing widget allows multiple users to share a canvas in real time.
Drawing Widget is an open-source Hemlock application, so you can grab the source code and work through it. This interface is built with Flash, but we’d be interested in seeing a JS port!
Picklive is the world’s first real-time fantasy football game. You play against your pals (or people you don’t know), picking three players for 10-minute periods whilst watching a live footie match. You can even join in on the iPad.
Go With The Flo is a rhythm game that maps keystrokes to videos. In theory, it can be used to turn any video into an interactive game. We applied the concept to an '80s aerobic video. Players emulate the moves of the aerobic video on their keyboards and compete for the most points.
What The Tweet is a guessing game built around a Twitter feed. Random tweets from celebrities are pulled in and have a word removed. Get points for guessing the missing word. The game includes power-ups, so you can mess with your opponents' game.
Mint Trumps is a card game where players compete to win the most cards. Each card contains a set of stats, with cards in this case being Mints, and the highest stat wins.
Will you choose the right stat to beat your opponents?
Yes, that includes the iPhone and iPad.
When building the original Hemlock framework, we chose ActionScript because it has widespread browser support, and lets us open a real socket connection. However, one of the biggest complaints we received was, of course, that we used ActionScript.More
