Presentation Night

Back with another Presentation Night brought to you by PlayCanvas and Mozilla!

Join us for a evening of talks about game development for the browser. We've got a great speaker coming all the way for the US and we're working on the others. It's going to be a great night!


Picking the Right Tool for the Job: HTML5 vs Unity 

Jesse Freeman

Game developers have a lot of options when it comes to picking platforms and frameworks to build their games with. If you are looking to build cross platform games there are two great options, HTML5 and Unity, but choosing which one to start with can be difficult. In this talk we will discuss the pros and cons of each platform by looking at the same game built in Phaser ( and Unity. We'll also discuss publishing options for both platforms and how to create truly cross platform games from a single codebase.
