Fun with processing.js

I started checking out various visualization tools for the web during the last few months. A project which I found very interesting is processing.js. This is a JS port of the processing language, an easy-to-use language to write visualizations or interactive media stuff. It seems it’s mainly used for visual art stuff.

You can see some example processing.js code here:

The page header animation at the processing website inspired me to create a small game, which I called PRace. Here is a screenshot:

It’s a 2D side scroller. You are the red guy on the left, and the goal is NOT to crash into the blue guys coming at you from the right — BUT flying close to them gives you points.

The best thing is that you can give the game a try yourself with a modern browser:

The code can be found at Github: https://github.com/dfsp-spirit/web/tree/master/processingjs/prace

 

Enjoy!
