PART 2 AVAILABLE HERE


PART 1


The future of web gaming has suddenly seen a shock of interest once again. Through the fall of Kongregate and other more-degenerate gaming websites, there had to of been a natural decline of those playing hand-crafted, quirky free-to-play browser games.


And yet, thanks to @ninjamuffin99, the market now appears openly (and readily) available for anyone willing to put their ideas to the grindstone.


We're joined by Lars Doucet (@larsiusprime) and Nicholas Cannasse (creator of Haxe, the language that brought to you HaxeFlixel,) and host @PsychoGoldfish, who has been friends with some of the biggest names on the indie market, and finally gets to flex his personal knowledge about the one-click, low-investment that is the browser game industry.


Lars will explain how Steam and Patreon have cornered the market for creators, but also why there's still viable options out there for those wanting more freedom to leave such platforms, as well as the type of environment that is equitable for browser game creators. Josh will supply Newgrounds' position within this strategic market of promoting and earning. Nicholas will explain how a powerful engine like Haxe is used in the capable hands of game devlopers. And finally, Cam will offer his experience from making FNF open source and what it means to garner attention and funding.


This is just Part 1, too~

25:36 "You wont get real feed back until you go broke for 3 years going broke making a game nobody is going to payy $5 for."

Man that just makes me wanna give up already.

for a person that got hit hard by the death of flash. Newgrounds for me has to be the only one to actually combat it. And are still making games for the web. Which is really sweet because I spent a lot of time on Newgrounds. And now in 2021, I think adobe was so goddamn stupid. Because they could have made flash a big thing, So big that it could give them millions but they just threw it in the trash just cause they could not update it well enough so it would not give you a screen that is blue with a sad face on it. But now with devs like ninja muffin, Stepford, and other talented game devs that are in a way changing web games forever. The big popularity of fnf made me think Of how awesome it would be if web gaming was actually more popular. We could get probably the best web games if that would be the chase. Genuinely hope that would be the future of web games. Also, this podcast was great. Psycho had some good opinions. madness combat being mainstream of gaming industries will be insane also

The near future of this site and browser based games is exciting

How come this isn't on the Google podcast app yet?
