  • This app allows users to make an account and post questions/advice to other computer science majors.
  • The more a user contributes, the more points they earn for helping out the community.
  • Users can reply to one another, like/dislike the other user's posts and view each other's profiles."

Team Cool: Laser Chess

Cool

Summary

"We implemented the board game Laser Chess in the open-source engine Godot. There are five boards to play on. Download the .dmg or .exe and .pck files from the repo, run it, and play!

The main menu includes a ""how to play"" section, but here are some notes not included:

  • Hit Escape during a game to return to the main menu
  • Two edges of the board are colored light blue and pink: blue pieces cannot move onto pink spaces, and red pieces cannot move onto light blue spaces."
