So, I'm usually working on game development. When I'm not, I'm thinking about game development. I was recently looking for ways to develop a particular game idea I had, and I had a few options that were suitable:
C# and XNA Game Studio Express. Limits me to Windows/XBOX360, but is a really nice framework for game development.
C++ and a game engine. I don't particularly need the bloat of a fully-fledged game engine, but it gives me the most options, and decent platform independence.
Flash. I mentioned to Kroc that I was considering this, as it does everything I need for my idea... and he asked me "are you quite mad o_o". I was wondering that myself, to be honest. :P
So Kroc showed me a few things, including an HTML5 game library at kesiev.com/… which looks pretty darn sweet. I tried playing with the HTML5 Canvas element in Firefox, and I am impressed with what I was able to do in a short amount of time. Best of all, the supported features fit my project perfectly.
So is anyone here an HTML5 gamer, or a game developer? Please relate your stories. :)
