20 Stunning Games Built in HTML5

HTML5 is the new and updated version of HTML, the common language of the internet. It is currently in the process of being adopted around the world. But at this point we are merely seeing the surface of its possibilities. HTML5 is still in its infancy, but developers are starting to experiment with what it can do, which has created some pretty interesting results. The HTML5 specification itself isn’t supposed to be “officially” ratified for another 10 years, but millions of developers and web companies have already made the switch and many more are doing so every day. One of these experiments have led the developers to start making games in HTML5. One of the real measures of whether HTML5 will take off will be how well it will support the gaming industry.

The HTML5 specification introduces cool new features for making games, such as the Canvas, Video, and Audio elements. When HTML5 is combined with the other exciting web technologies that make up the Open Web Platform, plugin-free gaming can be taken to a whole new level. In their most basic form, HTML5 games consist of javascript with the new HTML5 Canvas element.

In this post we are publishing 20 Stunning Games Built in HTML5 for your Inspiration for your Inspiration. I really hope that these might inspire you to start learning about html5 and how it should be used and how to implement it.

    These HTML5 games are quite basic compared to http://dead-earth.com

    Dead Earth is a real time strategy game where players take control of a corporation mining the asteroid belt in
    order to feed the ever growing population of earth.

    The game plays like a age of empires type game, with the player expanding thier corporate empire by colonising
    new asteroids, building ships and fleets and using, diplomacy and alliances to win universes.
