Earlier this year I was very excited to come across the above. This my friends is a screen shot of the game Google made to celebrate the anniversary of Pac-Man. In their ultimate wisdom they decided to launch a version of their Home Page where the Google logo was actually a playable version of the game Pac-Man, it was all done using HTML5. And that is damned cool.

Here are some of the sites and tools we use and like that provide us with inspiration.
A revolution in Flash game production. An amazing new way for man to interface with machine. The beginning of a new tomorrow. Never before has the world witnessed such a collection of AS3 files.We put it all in the new flixel 2. Groups to help organize game objects, quad trees for faster, more accurate collisions, a cleaner API, plus all the old flixel classics: animated sprites, tilemaps, and particle emitters. Most importantly, flixel is still completely free for personal or commercial use. What are you waiting for? It’s time to make games!
Flixel is becoming an integral part of our long term plan. Why? Because we don’t want to recreate the wheel.
The Flixel engine will allow us to focus on creating an amazing tool for building games. It allows us to focus on our creator and the social networking website that will be built around our games. The social network powered by WordPress will tie into our games database so that you will be able to share your games with your friends where they will be able to rate your games, comment on your games, and of course play them on their Android & Symbian devices.
These guys do some cool stuff. We’re taking the best bits and leaving the worst – nobody wants to have to make something on their desktop. This is the 21st century chaps and we’re going to be doing what they do but it’ll all be done here on this website where you get to it all under the one roof.
For me this is the future. More and more of what we see and do is going online, once upon a time you had to make word docs using Microsft work using Microsoft office. But not any more. Similarly, once upon a time you had to make games for the iPhone and iPad using only tools the big evil corporation wanted you to use to make games. But not any more.
Using Akihabara you can make games that run in any modern web browser including those that come with the iPhone and iPad without having to know difficult programming languages. In a future write up we’ll tell you how.
We love these guys because their tools inspired the design for our level creator.
