Do you want to develop a game? Here’s an introductory video series to get you started on HTML 5 game development!
Why HTML 5
The first video offers some reasons to consider making a game for the web: the power of having no friction in distribution, the freedom from siloed marketplaces, the choice of tools and APIs that are available to you, etc.
Engines and libraries
Firefox developer tools
Next in series, we have a hands-on video that shows how to use the developer tools in Firefox Developer Edition to debug and profile your game. Modifying code on the fly, adapting our game to different screen sizes, debugging… it’s all here!
Tips for game jams
Last, there is a video for all of you joining a game jam –these competitions where you develop a game over a weekend. I have participated in many, and I know first-hand how hard and challenging game jams are! I hope these tips might be of help.
And don’t forget, if you create an HTML 5 game, tell us about it here. I’d love to play it!
