Learning Three.js four: Maze Birthday Card

A maze for a birthday card

Hooray for the fourth 3 dimensional experiment!

This one is a birthday card for someone I know and is also much more complex than the others I have done so far. I ported a maze generation algorithm that I originally wrote in Python 3 to Javascript (I also have ported it to Lua, keep a look out for a post about Lua soon!) and then set about rendering it in 3D.

The aim is to get to the centre of the maze, where some 3D(!) spinning text is waiting for you. The maze generation algorithm is not designed to have the goal in the centre of the maze, so you will find that there are multiple paths that you can take from the centre that lead to different parts of the maze. I will make a separate post about the maze generation algorithm I have written later.

The collision detection is tile based and rather complicated (for me, anyway). I am surprised that nobody has written a library for this sort of thing.....
