HTML5 – Chances and Pitfalls
HTML5 is set to become the next standard in web applications, a key technology for the years to come. With its ability to handle multimedia and graphical content without the use of external plugins or APIs, it will play a crucial role in creating cross-platform content for both desktop- and mobile devices. Creating browser games using HTML5 is the logical next step on the evolutionary ladder of game development.
Realizing this potential, Hamburg-based game developer Bytro Labs has shifted all its resources toward developing their games in HTML5, incorporating the improved performance for complex graphics and the real-time aspect of communication between the player and the game. In the development of their newest game, they are not only creating a game fit for the future but they have been putting the new technology to the test.
