🌸 Die Asparagus! - Free Zoom Game to Play With Friends

Die Asparagus!!! - Free Zoom Game to Play With Friends

Go to the game: www.dieasparagus.com

An hour before the party was going to begin I decided to make a game. We already had the idea in mind, we wanted to play a scavenger hunt game on Zoom. I had the idea that I could make this less work for myself. Instead of holding up a piece of paper each time with a description and an image, I could do this with a program. Then I don’t have to have them run back to the screen each time where someone might see the next clue ahead of the other players. So I decided to make the program. It was down to the wire, an hour before the party began. Just in time, Version 1.0 of the scavenger hunt game was created. We all had a great time, it was a hit! I was encouraged to make it public so others could play it too. After a while, I decided to devote some more time in cleaning it up a bit and making it more automatic. Now we have, what we call dieasparagus.com.

Where did the name come from you may ask yourself? Well, I was playing another game with some friends where someone would create a tag line and another person would draw a picture. The images were combined and the end result would be a t-shirt. Everyone loved the ironic and cute but menacing look of the t-shirt. We decided to call the site ‘Die Asparagus!!!’ with the cute little flower on it.

Anyways, this is a free game. I wanted to make it available for anyone to play it, as well as making the option to pay if you want to show support.

How to play:

Hi there! Neat idea. I’m trying to build a multiplayer game as well, and am wondering how to build the “Create a Room” feature that allows users to create private rooms and share links with other people to join. Do you have any tips or tutorials on this topic? Much appreciated!

Hey :wave: @willxm

I create a database called Room, then you can send the room to the page. The link will have the room in the URL. The link would look something like this www.dieasparagus.com/?room=12090u120983019283x901820938210938 (This link is just an example, it doesn’t actually work)

Most of my tutorials are on my eLearning Hub, which is a paid membership. I will be doing an option sets tutorial first, then I can put it on my list to do a tutorial like this as well. :blush:

Hi there J805! I don’t understand how you’ve got the Player Count part, with the section on waiting for host. Does Bubble have a way of tracking who’s on the page? So it can update the player count? Or is there something else at play?
Does your eLearning Hub cover this all this sort of thing in detail?

Hey @notanescaperoom :wave:

I don’t have all the steps to create this site on the eLearning Hub. Some steps are there, for example, how to make a one page app, using set states and other things like that.

I will be adding how to do a ‘room’ feature soon on the eLearning Hub as well.

For updating the player count, when the user joins a room, I add them to the room’s list of users. That way, I can display it to the host as well as give the host a count of how many users are in the room.

Does that make sense? I hope that helps a bit. :blush:

Hey @notanescaperoom

I just created a video to explain how to create a virtual room and create a link for the users to join the room. I hope that helps a bit! :blush:

It’s posted on my eLearning Hub - Members Only (Paid) site. The link for the video is here: eLearning Hub - Creating a Virtual Room

Hope that works for you!

What did you use to make this game?

Hey @Breeze

What do you mean? Like which no code software?

I guess whatever software you used to make the game.

I used Bubble of course. :blush: It took me an hour to do the initial build. Then I took a few more to refine it later on.

I have been using Bubble since 2016 though.
