When Flash fell out of popularity due to lack of mobile support, it left small game makers with a big question – use outdated technology and miss out on the shift to mobile, or make mobile-only games and forget the browser? Gladly, thanks to JavaScript game development frameworks like Phaser, we no longer have to choose. In this talk, Catt Small will discuss the pros and cons of making games using JavaScript, the basic concepts behind Phaser (her tool of choice), as well as how to go beyond the browser and package JavaScript games for other platforms.
