Multiplayer games are the coolest: they bring us closer together, even when we're battling it out. While you can't build World of Warcraft in a weekend, you also don't need a big AAA game studio production team to create a game that is fun and engaging. All you need are existing web technologies already available in the browser! This talk walks you through creating a simple multiplayer game in the browser using Three.js, Socket.IO, and Node.js. You will learn how to structure game code, render an interactive 3D scene in the browser, and establish two-way communication between the client and server.
