HTML5 Games & Pumpkin Carving 2012-10-18 14:51:15
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:
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:
AirScapeby sqiddsterA hardcore gravity-shifting action platformer!
Deadly Ascensionby DrGeraudReach the highest point of the tower, ninja style !
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!
