Description

I found myself at the Techcrunch Disrupt Hackathon on June 21, 2011 without any clue what I would be making. In 24 hours, I met three awesome guys and built a cool HTML5 game. We ended up receiving honorable mention and appearing in an article on TechCrunch about us.

The game itself is based on a simple concept that we originally threw around as a joke: you play as a venture capitalist and invest in tech companies by throwing money at them. If the bubbles get too big, they'll just pop, so you try to cash out before that happens.

To save time, we developed the game in parallel: I built the Javascript engine, Dmitri wrote the backend API server to pull from the Crunchbase, and Adrian and Chris developed game mechanics, graphics, and sounds.
