It is possible to make a multiplayer browser based game using cocos2d-javascript + node.js? If so, is there any tutorial about that?

What kind of game? Multiplayer can be anything from scrabble to a first person shooter... be more specific. – bummzack Mar 16 '11 at 14:33
I think you didin't understand the question. What I want to know is if it's possible to use these two technologies (cocos2d-javascript - - and node.js) together. – buenoFelipe Mar 16 '11 at 14:38
It means any kind of game I can make with cocos2d-javascript, so a first person shooter isn't included... – buenoFelipe Mar 16 '11 at 14:40
cocos2d together with node.js should work perfectly fine IMO. Node.js is server-side and doesn't impose much limitations when it comes to the client-side library or language. – bummzack Mar 16 '11 at 14:54
Yeah, I know that but I don't realize how to do that. Do you know any tutorial or blog post about that? It could be just a simple game. – buenoFelipe Mar 16 '11 at 14:59

I'd recommend you check into and for information on what you can do with node.js.

cocos2d-javascript has a tutorials section on their website: which I recommend you start with.

Without significantly more detail, there isn't much more I can recommend you look at.
