HTML 5, it’s the 800 lbs gorilla in the developer room. I tried to resist it for as long as I could but in the end I had no choice but to embrace it. So to have a little fun I decided to make a game. But not just any game, I created a crowd sourced RPG built on top of ImpactJS and powered by WordPress. Crazy right? Well I was happy to find out that it actually wasn’t that hard to do!

In this talk I will cover ImpactJS which is a HTML 5 game framework. I’ll cover my development workflow, how I converted my AS3 code over to HTML 5, asset management (sprite sheets generation) and discuss the future of HTML 5 gaming. I’ll also cover some basics of Canvas and how I used WordPress to power my game.
