[link] BrowserQuest a massively multiplayer HTML5

Posted 28 March 2012 - 07:22 AM


ars info:

github of code:

actual game site:

Now this is pretty darn cool considering it's just html5 and javascript. A pretty cool route for those who are looking develop games on the even more cheap.

Side note - (at the time of this post) it appears the servers are getting a good juicing due to slashdot so patience is a must.


BrowserQuest is a tribute to classic video-games with a multiplayer twist. You play as a young warrior driven by the thrill of adventure. No princess to save here, just a dangerous world filled with treasures to discover. And it’s all done in glorious HTML5 and Javascript.

Built on the Web platform

BrowserQuest makes extensive use of different web technologies, such as:
  • HTML5 Canvas, which powers the 2D tile-based graphics engine.
  • Web workers, allowing to initialize the large world map without slowing down the homepage UI.
  • localStorage, in which the progress of your character is continually saved.
  • CSS3 Media Queries, so that the game can resize itself and adapt to many devices.
  • HTML5 audio, so you can hear that rat or skeleton die!
