Who Needs Flash?
An Experiment: “Faded”
To prove this point (perhaps to myself), I started working on a game. No Flash, no fancy plugins, just HTML, CSS, and a little bit of jQuery programming. As it turns out, this was a challenging and tedious task, but it wasn’t as difficult as I had expected it to be. I started to build out a few interactive puzzles and tied them together in a fictional story, and I really started to have fun with it.
If you’re interested, you can check out the game here (I still have some testing to do in Internet Explorer, but any other browser should work fine):
Let me know if you have any issues…HTML is definitely not meant to be an interactive game engine, so I might have some kinks to work out along the way. There are only a few puzzles to solve, but you can sign up for updates when you complete the game and I’ll let you know as I add more. If it’s something that people seem to like, it will be one of my many ongoing projects.
