I’m a german software developer and I used to play a browser game called Skrupel between 2001 and 2008. It technically still exists because it’s open source (https://github.com/kantoks/skrupel) but it isn’t hosted anywhere anymore and nobody maintains it anymore either.
About a 9 months ago I decided that I’d try to recreate this old favorite of mine with new technology. The original was written in PHP (I believe this was the first big project of the original’s creator - the code is really bad ^^") and I recreated it with Spring Boot, Thymeleaf and Bootstrap. It is also open source (https://gitlab.com/robertbleyl/skrupel-tng) and went full live about a week ago: https://skrupeltng.de/
I also used to play other PBBGs like ogame or die ewigen (german ogame clone basically), but they never really caught on with me. I always liked the more small approach Skrupel took, and you had a galaxy map so you could see stuff which was cool
To be honest I’m not much into browser games these days, but one of the reasons I started my project was to play some Skrupel again with humans I played some during my playtesting against the AI I built but it’s obviously not the same - but the feeling was there at least
I hope you enjoy the game I made! Any feedback would be much appreciated!
