Future of html5 games

Hey everyone. I hope you are doing well. As I am on the road, I thought to start a topic which for me is quite interesting.

Since I have been looking at BJS and what we can do in the web I have always thought that the future for every non triple A game is in the browser.

This is what I have foreseen and I think in about 5 years the mobile and desktop market will turn heavily in the web. What do you guys think?


From the great Input of Wignut I am dividing the topic in possible blocks for html5 games future.

  1. Definition of success (financial? moral? self-satisfaction?)
  2. Independence/freedom
  3. Performance - physics and multi-threads
  4. Security/hack-ability
  5. Target audience (and their wallet levels)

Heh. An overwhelming response, eh? (sorry)

I was touring the list of weekend un-answered Q&A sub-forum questions, and came across this. thx for the mention. Sorry for the slow replies.

Moral success? That’s a big-daddy subject. I think there’s just a few of us… that place moral success as a higher priority than all other definitions of success. There’s been railroadings and programmings. But really, it affects ALL of it… or, in other words… “primary life purpose”. It’s a huge subject that few want to consider/talk about. It’s understandable that the def of success leans heavily towards financial, seeing that the cost-of-living is terrorizing SO MANY.

Someone could ask one’s self… if it is more important to get nice games into the hands of people who have little enjoyments and opportunities in their lives… and do it as cost-free as possible. And we’re not ONLY talking about obtaining games for the down-trodden to play and smile-about, but also those other categories of moral success… getting the down-trodden empowered to MAKE a decent game and get that self-satisfaction happiness.

Not ALWAYS true, but most-times, when you code to make money… you want to wipe-out the competition, and soak the customer for “whatever the market will bear” and carry the “there’s nothing wrong with making a good profit” belief (lie)… securely under your arm. (well hugged as truth).

I THINK I see trends leaning-towards wiping-out “the other guy” to maximize personal profits and keep “little guys” from ever becoming big guys (and thus becoming a threat to your devoted client base). We live in a world that appears to MOSTLY condone competing and gouging… instead of empowering the little guys and helping them find some happiness.

I have been spanked for talking about these things on this forum, so I guess I should stop, here.

All this happens… well-before any other “games” considerations… and I’m glad you placed this topic #1 on your list… appropriately.

#2 - same things apply. Independence from money WORRIES (and from slaving in a game company to alleviate those worries)? Or independence from using/needing money at all (abolish economies/ownership/price-tags and operating like all other living creatures on the planet… none of which use those things). True freedom would only be possible… when money/bills/ownership/price-tags… are gone. It needs to happen soon, or the world will explode (imho).

#3. Will single threaded JS EVER keep-up-with multi-tasking games? Unlikely. Therefore, non-JS games will always be more popular and better perfoming than JS games. I don’t foresee that ever changing.

#4. Hacking/cracking is not a big concern… unless you are selling games… and you don’t want people to get free versions. We MIGHT see a “pay if you can” system, someday, but often, the well-to-do didn’t get there by voluntarily paying for enjoyments. Often, the folks with the most money… are the ones least-likely to share it with others. In their eyes, and many others’ eyes… competing is much more important and programmed into their brains… than cooperating is.

#5. Yeah, targeting the money… vs. targeting the folk who have very few enjoyments in their lives. If cost-of-living is hounding/extorting/or-elsing the game author… they will want-to/NEED-to… gouge and soak, and target the money trail. As inflation keeps going crazy, and we get less and less quantity/quality for the bux… the need to bill/gouge/soak will become more necessary. Trendings have been seen in this direction… for many many years, now.

So you see… HOW #1 is answered… affects the answers to the other 4 points. If moral success is a higher priority than financial success, the last 4 points get answered very differently… than if financial success is the highest priority.

I HIGHLY APPLAUD YOU for even bringing-up moral success as a factor. Few have the balls to do that… as it is such a seemingly highly-blindered/forsaken factor. Few/No companies have a morals or ethics dept/chief.

Yeah, I know, heavy topics, eh? I wouldn’t be surprised if my talking like this… gets this post censored away. Blinders, ya know? Nobody wants to hear anything except “everything is fine”, whether it is or not. People are very reluctant to loosen hugs on beloved teddy bears/beliefs/self-lies.

How dare anyone question the status-quo. Many say “hey, that’s life” or “it’s just the way it is” or “it is what it is”… and few will say “it’s the way we’ve allowed it to become”.


Yes friends, and… A NEW FOCUS.

Yes, the future is here, and it is yours to grasp it.

YOUR endeavor is not impossible. Continue.

Yes, we found a way through this jungle. And (paradoxically) why - we do not make games.

The future is bigger than games.

We look for the best-fit in The~Web~Medium. Using All~Tools, for the most impactful results.

We FOCUS on Web~Cinematics. Episodic-Interactive-Movies. With TEXT, AUDIO, and …

3D Web Comic Worlds

To tell The~Human~Story from the perspective of distant ExoPlanets.

The strangest journey.


Your voice. Your view.

This is the best MEDIUM of expression - ever - to do that.

Utilize BABYLON, to echo what you see, so that others can see it too.

Exactly - what great FILMS do. But, while we have no film - we have something better.

BABYLON is the most exciting Content-Creation-Medium in human history.

Ground-floor, green-field, creative-expression, zero-gatekeeper.

And why we work, break-neck-speed, 7 days a week, nights, and Sundays.

There is a clear vision on the horizon with web cinematics.

To publish, is only a: git commit -a && git push origin master //away

That is unprecedented. Seize~It.

In 2020, we are done with the App~Store~Addictions.

Turn~your~Focus, over like a new leaf and…


If It~Is~Not~Impossible… then how?


No one can deliver creative-content like this very babylon community.

If you look at it just right, in the light, we can see that the web has something unmatched.

It is a WORLD~WIDE~WEB that we embrace. Abubbling Social~Net. Do NOT run from what is new and strange, but with reserved~judgement, we run directly at it! Why???

Because The~Social~Net is uniquely within YOUR Domain.

Play~Now. Instant access. Join the chat. Something amazing awaits YOU.

These are… OUR unique core~competencies.

Where fictional characters speak with a twitter.

Mixed-media. All of the Above. Simultaneously.

Go down every~last~path with a GOOD message.

My kids (and your kids, and all kids). They are glued to their “screens”. The future is there.

But what is it? Should we struggle to … get them to STOP. Or to help them READ SOMETHING GOOD? That is why.

And why (surprisingly) NOT~GAMES, zoom the camera back to a bigger focal…


Visual Novels - that are not~trash.

Inspirational like PIXAR. Hopeful like comics. The world needs this more than ever.

Escapism from our locked-in-lives into any planet YOU can imagine.

YOU and ME - we escape in 3D.

AND take the world-wide-web, with you, to any ExoPlanet… that YOU want to go.

Look exactly where no one is. Exactly at the untapped, episodic, and cinematic web. AND go there.

3D Sunday Cinematics… in your in-box.

Brought to you by MailChimp… or whoever is least~oppressive~of~us.

Like the samurai of old - we relentlessly seek MASTERY in BABYLON.

So that one day the practice is NOT of vigor - but of EFFORTLESS~SPEED.

Is it only a dream? No, you make it real. We make it real.

A repeatable and precise development methodology. End~to~end. To express yourself.

A freedom of expression at your finger-tips. YOU have it already. And in 2020, after years of hard work, we share~it~back .

For others who’s struggle is the SAME.

If you are at the beginning, we come back for YOU, and YOU are at the end - go back for them - through the jungle - to the wall, through the tiny crack, we chip away - into the garden.

2020 begins the five year clock that @Null set. And when it starts - join it. Together as a strong voice.

A unified vision… for the Future. A~NEW~VIEW.

Solo-artists, with new tools, of unprecedented capability - FULLY Unleashed and Tapped.

With clear~focus, a new way. Relentlessly YOU all chip-away-at-it… AND it will arrive.

Because weshare-alike solutions, to advance the same art. But why???

To advance the Same~Struggle. To advance the purpose of GOOD:

  • We help people read.

  • We help people escape.

  • We help people advance code.

  • We help people express themselves.

  • We help people find their unique voice.

  • Ane we help people find purpose.

That is true. And it is GOOD.

Look around you. Didn’t BABYLON give you purpose? Can’t you magnify it for others?

That is the passion and the new focus we tap into. And, it is why we Never~Stop. Why we struggle~to~learn. Why we struggle~to~speak. And why we come back Again and Again. Because most amazingly, at the end of the day it is not about YOUR place in line… it is the place in line BEHIND US, that becomes most advanced.

You Advance The~Same~Struggle. Just as someone (Catue) did for you.

The person who reads this… long after WE are gone. That is who this is for. The googler. The seeker. That is the future. This is not a game it is the world-wide-web. Your methodology in WORDS, your CHOICE to encourage, YOUR wisdom perpetuated - is the currency that matters more than green paper.

Where the more you give - is the more you get.

AND if you look, just right, in the distance, we can all see that BABYLON is that place.

The future - is paradoxically not a game - it is something new. Something yet untapped.

We believe: the future is an Exo~Planet.
A 3D~Pipeline, to a Social~Net, filled with Solo~Artists, and their clever Web~Cinematics.
That speak a good message to humanity.

That is the future we choose, tirelessly, with BABYLON, and The~3D~Web.
