As an engineering team at B12, we spend a lot of time building products powered by automation and the future of work. We also spend a lot of time hanging out and procrastinating — that’s how we found slither.io. To take a quick break from work we would often get in a game or two throughout the day. We noted that most of the time we were put into separate game rooms and although the game was a lot of fun, we wanted to slither together.
We began digging through the source to see if there was anyway to modify the code to put us in the same room and stumbled upon this line:
ws = new WebSocket(“ws://” + bso.ip + “:” + bso.po + “/slither”);
With these three features: shared game room, minimaps, and team leaderboard, we realized we had built a v1 of a multiplayer experience for slither.io. We wanted to publish and share with others so they could make teams of their own. We would love to see others contribute improvements! Send us some love on github.
