Mozilla launches BrowserQuest

By - | Views: 7,422

Games on the web equals Flash, or at least it used to, before the advent of HTML5. Eager to showcase this, and a lot of other cross-platform web tech, Mozilla has launched BrowserQuest.

The game is described as "a tribute to classic video-games with a multiplayer twist" and "a demo of how this technology can be used today to create a real-time multiplayer game in a single webpage".

Source code for both server and client is available from GitHub.

The only thing I'm missing about this new tech so far is that there's no right-click function. Flash had this same problem.
Also what puzzles me mostly is the fact that it runs faster on Chrome than on Firefox. Strange... :confused:

If they keep developing it - then it could be quite cool after a while.

Played a while. I like all the little references to games and movies.
But I don't have any sound, despite having sound in HTML5 videos.
Tried with Firefox and Chromium.

Looking through the github they plan to add keyboard movement as well which is nice.

I thought Chromium could not do HTML5 videos, but it can run this?
