DrawPlatformer Logo

DrawPlatformer allows you to make your own Platformer style video game. With just a few markers and some printer paper, you can draw your own custom level. Then, just take a picture of your masterpiece, upload it to our server, and you have a playable game in under 30 seconds. We built this at HackUVA, UVA's premier 24-hour hackathon. Out of 35 competing teams, we were awarded with the Grand Prize (1st place) along with $1,000.

How It Works

I used OpenCV + Skimage + Python to do the image processing on the backend. My brother made the front end web browser game with Javascript. We both made the backend (Django) together.
