HTML 5 Gaming is rapidly evolving and there has never been a better time to give it a try. This workshop focuses on using Impact JS to create amazing retro style games in the browsers without a plugin. Impact takes advantage of Canvas, JavaScript and modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, FireFox, IE 9+) to deliver fast fluid games directly in the browser. Even better is that Impact JS works on mobile browsers too. Impact JS also works great natively on iOS since you can compile your Impact JS game in XCode to take advantage of Open GL graphics and Open CL for sound.

During this workshop we will cover:

  • How to install tools for HTML 5 game building.
  • Introduction to Game Design, Game Theory and Web Gaming.
  • Intro to ImpactJS.
  • Making your first ImpactJS game.
  • Game Asset generation with PhotoShop Scripting.
  • Working with inheritance, animation and sound in ImpactJS.
  • Deployment strategies and distribution (Web, Desktop, Mobile).

Workshop attendees will also get a free non-commercial license of Impact JS along with documentation and lesson source code. It is recommended that you have Apache and PHP installed prior to the workshop in order to run the code examples and follow along.
