Cosmic makes it easy to manage content for your Vue.js applications. In this blog we'll quickstart a Vue.js RPG Adventure Game using the Cosmic CLI. Our game, "Enter The Cosmos", is a turn-based, RPG style game built using Vue.js, Node.js and Cosmic. The game follows you as you fight off a fleet of space pirates to avenge your family. Install, deploy and edit every part of this video game app from your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard. 🔥

Step 1: Create an Account

Sign up for Cosmic + Install the Cosmic CLI + Create a New Bucket


Step 2 🛠️ Installation

Install via the Cosmic CLI:


I set up an example Bucket for this blog:


Run cosmic -h for a list of all commands. Run cosmic [command] -h for details on options for a specific command. You're now up and running with a Vue.js RPG Adventure Game that can be managed entirely from your Cosmic Bucket Dashboard and Command Line Terminal tool of choice. 


Step 3: Content Management 

Manage content for your RPG game in three separate object types: Pages, Screen Assets and Sprites. Refer to the original tutorial to see how the game's content models are chosen and implemented. 


Conclusion

I was able to easily install a Vue.js RPG Adventure Game using a headless CMS API that I can now use to manage dynamic content changes. When ditching the installed content management system and going API-first isn't quick enough, check out the Starter Apps from Cosmic  to get a project up and running in seconds. 🔥
