Game Closure demoed its new HTML5 cross-platform gaming technology at Google's I/O conference today. The company's goal is to produce gaming experiences written entirely in HTML5 that can be played on web browsers, smartphones and tablets, all with the same code.
The company showed off "Popstar Defense," a multiplayer HTML5 game where users can play together in real time. The game features as many as 2,000 objects onscreen at once.
Because "Popstar Defense" and similar games are powered by HTML5 and JS, they don't require plugins and are able to leverage the same code across different platforms and devices, the company said. Users can also send simple web links in order to invite friends to join the game.
