Lol, I really wonder whether this could get popular.
I don't think that is the point really is it?
you cant even see your bullets and the grenades arent that satisfying.
No, but I still wonder.
Id would've vommed in their cereal if you'd told them they could do this 15 years ago.
Bah. I thought this would just be on a webpage you can navigate to. You've got to download a load of crap, install lame and ogg vorbis, run a local server and then download the actual demo, compile it and THEN it will launch in the browser.... How very tedious and un-google like.
screw you hippy, id rather play this then your modern horseshit 2
Yes but can it run crysis?
I think I'd rather play a real copy with an offhand grapling hook bound and a Keys2 mod. Powerups = teh awesome.
lol, I think the author and most commentors are missing the point. Google aren't looking to win critical acclaim for the quality of a game they didn't make, they are simply demonstrating that this MARKUP LANGUAGE is so powerful that it can be used to build full 'games'.
This raises the question of how it would perform in Firefox. I expect the game only runs in Safari because it is also a WebKit-based browser, but if they've truly ported the game to HTML5, shouldn't FF be able to run it, as well?
Why doesn't it run in the latest Firefox releases?
I am just assuming, based on the wording of the article, that it does not run in Firefox. I'm currently not somewhere where it would be appropriate to be seen playing games on my laptop =P.
Sounds impressive, but I really don't care unless I can click on one link to play. Bah.
It's getting there GLGE is getting there see: http://www.glge.org/ and you can walk around the level with one click.
not enough rep could possibly be given to express how awesome what you just said was
hopefully a new form of browser speedtest will soon pop up: frame rates
Guys, this is a TECH DEMO, not a game demo. It's a demo, a little insight in what will be possible in the near future. And that google-like linky-linky-pew-pew that you are all looking for will no doubt happen soon enough, but for now you have to set some stuff straight
I'm thouroughly impressed, and very anxious to see the new generation of web 3.0 sites that take full advantage of this. However i also fear for the level of work that needs to go into creating a competative website. Just like with games, all the graphical enhancements could make it impossible for small studios to compete and deliver quality, thus handing the entire business over to investors that dont care one bit about what it is they are investing in.
In short, i really fear for the Modern Horseshit 2 equivalent site o Bit-Tech
