Scavenge With Friends was developed at HackPoly – 2015 Cal Poly Pomona’s Hackathon. My team and I created a web application where users can virtually participate in a scavenger hunt around the world with their friends. The goal was to easily allow the users to join a session and immediately participate in that session’s scavenger hunt.
How to Play:
Each player is allowed to join a specific game room or session by entering the game room’s name upon entering the game. There is a maximum of four players per game room. The user is able to explore the world using the navigation controls in the center of the application. The user is able to take a screenshot of their current view by clicking the Camera icon. Once captured, the image will be displayed in the user’s corresponding portrait. The goal of the game is to have the most points in a set amount of time. Every round a random player is allowed to describe an object that every other player must find. Each user earns a point if he or she is able to find that object. To determine if a player indeed did find the object, every player is allowed to vote if the image that another player captured is in fact the desired object.
