Killer Benefits of HTML5 in Games

2,687

Published on

Most companies working on HTML5 for games talk only about the cross-platform advantages of HTML5. For Non-Stop Games and the game Dollar Isle the cross-platform aspect is only a bonus - there are many other killer benefits. This session will run through the development of the social virtual world Dollar Isle (www.dollarisle.com) and how HTML5 allows a new sort of distribution titled "Game as a Link". This disruptive distribution model can dramatically improve the virality of a game and also decrease customer acquisition costs.
