Came up with our Hacktoberfest idea!

Karl Murray @Karlm89

As @Dulac and I were sitting at our desks on Discord we ran across a couple of articles on #hacktoberfest. Neither of us knew what we wanted to do.

I started taking a Vue js course with Maximilian Schwarzmüller, completed the first major component of The Monster Slayer game. Which itself is a really basic form of what became Humans-vs-AI.

So, I open sourced the project. @Dulac and I started doing PRs on it and coming up with new features. We have refactor the code several times, and launched it on our own domain. We have been having a blast working on this, and don't plan on stoping, or slowing down!
