A small group of dedicated Doomtown players have been working on a project to bring a modern, web-based client for playing Doomtown to life. If you’ve used jinteki.net, theironthrone.net, jigoku.online or thecrucible.online, you will be familiar with the interface of Doomtown Online.
This project has been given official sanction by Pinebox Entertainment, and as such, when complete, will replace other virtual platforms for playing Doomtown tournaments online.
While we have a great base and are making progress each and every day, we need more hands on deck. As they say, many hands make light work, so we are looking for more contributors and testers!
There is work for all levels of coders, from scripting easy card interactions, to improving the engine behind the scenes, so even if you don’t have a lot of experience, don’t be afraid to give it a try!
If you don’t have any desire to write code, but still want to help, we need people to play games on the platform, to test card interactions and file bug reports so that we know what’s broken, what could use improvement, etc. Even just going through the documentation and improving grammar, fixing typos, writing clarifications, etc would be helpful!
If this sounds like a project that you’d be interested in helping out with, please shoot me a pm and I will help get you set up.
If you want to check the project out, go to https://doomtown.us where you will find links to the contribution guide and the beta game client. The production url for the game will be different, but that’s where you can find it for now.
