LXer: Unreal gaming from within the browser

Published at LXer:

Having recently introduced asm.js as a way of running C/C++ applications using a highly optimisable subset of JavaScript, Mozilla has joined Epic Games to present the technology being applied to a well-known platform at the Games Developer Conference in San Francisco. A port of the Unreal Engine 3 game engine to JavaScript allows games to be played in the browser without a Flash plug-in. The port only uses HTML5, WebGL and JavaScript technologies, and asm.js ensures that the games are almost fast enough to meet the performance levels of native implementations.

Woa! I didn't know about this stuff. The Bananabread demo is brilliant -- I just spent a few minutes fragging and being fragged in my web browser. I know this stuff has been coming for a while but it's impressive nonetheless to one who recalls Doom needing a fancy fast PC to run.
