Mozilla Labs Launches Gaming Initiative

Sep 08, 2010

Platform based on open Web technologies.

Mozilla Labs announced its newest initiative, a gaming platform appropriately named Mozilla Labs: Gaming. The goal of the platform is to create browser-based games built on Open Web standards.

"We invite the wider community to play with cool, new tech and aim to help establish the Open Web as the platform for gaming across all your Internet connected devices," Pascal Finette from Mozilla Labs said.

Some of the technologies Mozilla Labs Gaming utilizes include webGL, touch controls, geolocation, Javascript, and open video and audio. Games built on HTML5 are available freely on sites like HTML5games.com, but with Mozilla's new initiative looks to advance games.

Mozilla Labs Gaming is also launching an international gaming competition to drive developer interest to the burgeoning platform. Aptly titled Game_On 2010, the competition will open at the end of September.
