With the new HTML5 together with the new
CSS3 styling it is possible to create real games now. Well sure, you still need
least the newer Apple iPhones and similiar handheld devices don't support Flash anymore, these nice new
HTML5 games are some kind of fun even for those devices.
One of those games is the experiment Mozilla made and it is described in the chapter below.
Browserquest - the Mozilla Experiment
Two french webdesigners of Little Workshop created a game together with Mozilla. This game called
Browserquest is more about the techniques used: With
several other small programs like Websockets they programmed this game to show what is possible today. It is running on
the webpage, no need to do anything else than open the site and play.
Browserquest is a small game, no real princess to rescue, no real demon to kill... but you can get some achievements and have a look at the game world. It's awesome to watch what is possible today.
Hexenmeister Raven was there and brought back some screenshots for your pleasure. A short walkthrough can also be found on my Browserquest page which is linked in the side navigation.
