There's been an exciting new development on NG this past week - HTML5 game support!

The system is invite-only at the moment but allows developers to upload a ZIP.

The first HTML5 game that arrived through the new system was Dual Custody:

  • Dual Custody
    Dual Custody by badgergames

    Carry a baby through a trap filled maze!

Unfortunately it didn't work in Firefox and IE during its first weekend of release and got downvoted a bunch. It turned out our servers needed a proper MIME-Type response for .ogg and .m4a files, otherwise Firefox and IE blocked it. That's been fixed now so PLAY!

Other HTML5 games include:

  • AirScape
    AirScape by sqiddster

    A hardcore gravity-shifting action platformer!

The above games were made with Construct 2, a visual HTML5 game development tool. We've set up a Construct 2 collection in our Game Dev Platforms section so you can weigh your development options!

And say what you will about the Arrow promotional game, but it has the unique honor of being the ONLY game on NG that you can play on an iPhone. The other HTML5 games require a keyboard.

If you're an HTML5 game developer and want to take NG for a spin, PM me!

In other news...

We'll be having our annual Pumpkin Carving contest soon! Get that pumpkin carved with an NG theme, take a picture and have it ready for the contest thread. Need suggestions? Here's 75 of them:

  • Faces of 2012

Who won the monthly voting money?

If you can't find anyone, you can just give it to me and call it a day. That would make it easier.

I've already got my pumpkin carving concept ready, I'm just waiting for a closer date so that I don't carve it too early and it goes messy by Halloween.
I'm not gonna tell you what it is, but lets just say it's something very classic with regards to NG/

sweet, I'm getting tired of the Flash platform. also Firefox uses ogg, and not mp3, mp3 is a patent riddled format while ogg was designed to be patent free, same thing with mp4 and H.264 and H.263+, plus Vorbis is superior to MPEG-2 Audio Layer III in terms of compression, and performance, and Theora is a lot less cpu intensive than both H.264 and H.263+, so much so that hardware acceleration might not be necessary, also, I'm well aware of the MIME-Type response problem, when I made an HTML5 based ogg player so I could finally ditch flash on my site, fortunately Firefox 16 now supports the application/x-ogg MIME-Type as well as the audio/ogg, also Firefox tends to follow standards more closely than other browsers and the HTML5 standard says the server response overrides the 'type' attribute in the audio and video tags, not the other way around, so fixing the server response is not optional, the 'type' attribute is just fallback, the reason the HTML5 standard has it like this is to prevent security issues from outside HTML code, there is an addon for Firefox to force the MIME-Type for the client side, it was created because some servers return the wrong MIME-Type.

Hmm, not too sure about the direction HTML5 is taking, to be brutally honest. I've heard a lot of doom and gloom for Flash, so hopefully the two can coexist. That's just my own rambling, though.

It means in time you will have more and more games available on your iPod, yes. As we get more content ready for mobile we'll offer better browsing options as well.

So, we carve our pumpkin and take a picture of it. Do we make it a regular art submission or something? How do we upload it and tag it?

I'm gonna post a contest thread where you can upload a photo OR link your Art Portal entry, if you want to submit it there. If you submit it to the Art Portal, tag is "pumpkin2012"... I'll have to make a note of that in the contest thread. :)

Man, I'm having some serious issues with my toes.

They're like clubbed :<

Think Megan Fox's thumb times ten.

I'm a hideous creature, I might draw myself for some Halloween based project. Maybe carve my toes into a pumpkin or something.

Looking forward to seeing the Carve 'n' Share submissions this year.

"the death of flash" - we will see.
but first, a word from adobe AIR: "is your HTML5 game mobile? Can it be run directly from the desktop?"

still cool what you can do with HTML5, though ^.^

I never understood that point. I mean, maybe HTML5 can make interactive content -- it may be better than flash for web design. However, you can't make a full fledged cartoon with HTML. Or as far as I know, there's no application called HTML that allows you to draw frames and whatnot.

If HTML5 cuts into the business of flash's web design, then they can simply target the animators and, to an extent, game designers who use it more.

I'm sure they could even adapt flash for HTML5 output or integrate it. But I'm far from a coder so I probably have very minimal knowledge of that sector of it. I'm just an animator.
