Building own multiplayer browser game used to be hard due to a massive list of challenges in development and operations... Not anymore — Heyplay has it all covered.

Editor For starters, you need an editor (a.k.a. IDE) to make your game in. Heyplay provides a powerful zero-setup online editing with first-class support for TypeScript (syntax coloring & autocomplete like in VSCode). Plus integrated versioning, errors and docs. Scripting Script is the heart of every game — describing how it starts and evolves over time, how players move, how they score or meet their doom... Heyplay relies on TypeScript, a convenient & widely recognized scripting language, to turn ideas into games. Graphics & animation Games are all about motion — eye catching and buttery smooth. And in case of competitive multiplayer — well-synchronized and responsive too. Heyplay comes with simple ways for making things move and hardware accelerated, cross-platform graphics engine. Collision detection Here's the shocking revelation: moving objects in the game tend to run into each other. What then? Heyplay comes with a simplified & friendly way to track collisions and react to them without requiring advanced understanding of physics or a math degree. Input handling From computers with keyboard & mouse through touchscreen smartphones and tablets to gamepads — there are many ways to control the game. Heyplay unifies them all and swiftly passes signals from any gaming platform straight to the game script. Real-time networking Making players participate in the same multiplayer game — regardless if there are 3 or 30 of them, no matter if they’re on broadband or 3G, without constant delays or hiccups — is one of most complex gamedev challenges. Hayplay covers it out of the box. Match-making Every multiplayer game must have a way to bring players together into the same instance — preferably one close by and not overloaded. Or maybe a specific one using invitation link? Heyplay brings players together — it only takes one click on the Play button. In-game chat What fun would multiplayer be without being able to communicate? That’s why every game instance on Heyplay has a real-time chat baked into it — nicely integrated into the game UI, eliminating the need for 3rd party apps (not that they’re not welcome). World-wide deployment When it comes to ping time & input lag in multiplayer, the key is server location & each player’s distance from it. Heyplay runs the same game seamlessly in multiple instances deployed across the globe to stay close to players no matter where they are. Bugfixing Many things will go wrong when building a game — simple typos, logical mistakes, infinite loops, out of memory issues… Both when developing and after. Heyplay gathers all the errors, shows where they’ve happened and allows to release a fix in no time. Anti-cheat Unfair competition is a real buzzkill. Heyplay battles cheating on multiple fronts so that games cannot be tampered with to gain advantage, mess up the score or see more than the others. Also, pay-to-play or pay-to-win is not welcome here. Server ops Zero-downtime deployment, security patches, hardware failures, monitoring... It gets hot out there in the cloud. Heyplay replaces a highly specialized DevOps team and covers all the server administration chores so you can focus on the creative part.
