draw battle!
draw battle is a casual but competitive team drawing and guessing game I made with my friend Rajeev Nayak.
At the start of the pandemic in 2020 when everyone was transitioning to remote, we wanted to make something for friends to do together remotely. We started brainstorming virtual escape room experiences. Unable to come up with anything, we decided to build a team pictionary game instead.
draw battle is built with Vue 3 using JSX and TypeScript. This was built when Vue 3 was just released so it was fun to try it out, especially as a usual React developer.
draw battle struck a chord with remote friends groups and remote teams. In 2022, over 300,000 games were completed. It’s one of my projects I’m most proud of. Watch popular streamers play draw battle and say how much they love it 😊
