Mozilla has just released a new game, BrowserQuest, which runs purely in the browser environment, making use of the various HTML5 elements with such HTML5 elements as ‘audio’ and ‘video’ in what Mozilla claims is a ‘tribute to classic video games with a multiplayer twist.’
Recent advances in the power of user’s PC and a number of tweaks to browser rendering-engines have brought browser gaming to a decent level, so hopefully we’ll see a load more games in the coming months. There’s certainly no reason why Firefox or Google Chrome can’t reproduce some of the classics from the home console era, which until now have been confined to complicated simulator programs which had to be downloaded and installed beforehand.
