• CrossCode - An HTML5 based 2D Action-RPG - Felix Klein

With a rise of APIs such as Canvas2D, WebGL, Web Audio and the Gamepad API, HTML5 becomes an attractive platform for games.

While most HTML5-based games today can be categorized as casual- or mini games, the technology today is advanced enough to support even more complex types of games. In this talk we present CrossCode, a 2D Action-RPG entirely written in JavaScript. Behind the game's admittedly simple 2D graphics style hides a sophisticated game engine with 3D collision, path finding, 3D sound and many more features. We'll demonstrate the different features CrossCode has to offer and give an insight into HTML5 game development in general.

See you on wednesday! :-)
