A downloadable game for Windows and Mac OS X

Having a party? How about letting EVERYONE PLAY! Use as many USB controllers as your system supports OR break out your smartphone, connect it to the same network as your computer then open its browser to happyfuntimes.net and you're in!

This is mostly a proof of concept / demo for happyfuntimes, a system for creating 2 to 100+ player games. A free open source library for HTML or Unity. There are way more interesting ideas for super local multiplayer games.

Please make some cool games!

I can only get 4 wired xbox360 controllers to work. How to make more than 4 usb 360 controllers to work in game?

Sorry, I'm using Electron which is based on Chrome and Chrome only currently supports 4 USB controllers :( Hopefully they'll fix it soon and I can post a new version. Until then if you don't want to use smartphones as controllers you can go to https://greggman.github.io/hft-boomboom/ in Firefox and it should support more than 4 USB controllers.
