How Can We Use HTML5 Games?

Branded HTML5 Games

We’re a highly experienced HTML5 game developer with around a decade of experience designing video game concepts for clients that intrinsically communicate brand values and product features and benefits in an engaging way.

We’re totally comfortable producing artwork for games that conforms to the strictest of brand guidelines, while being mindful of the technical and functional aspects specific to game design.

Future-Proof Your Web Games With HTML5

Using the latest web development technologies, HTML5 developers can be sure online content doesn’t require users to install third-party web browser plugins (such as the Flash and Unity players).

HTML5 online games run directly in the web browser, so you don’t need to worry about shifting third-party platforms or trends making your web game completely obsolete in future.

Flash to HTML5 Game Conversion

As well as being an HTML5 game development service provider, we can also convert your existing Flash web browser games to HTML5 and make them compatible with a modern mobile devices as well as desktop computers. We’ll give your games a more modern, highly polished make-over to keep them up-to-date and future proof.

Why Should We Choose HTML5 Online Games Over Mobile Apps?

HTML5 allows us to develop browser games that don’t require players to download and install an app as well as allow quick and easy deployment after completion, without having to go through submission processes for mobile app stores. Using HTML5 for games development means your audience no longer needs the third party browser plugins required by other online game dev technologies, such as the Flash and the Unity players.

This makes your web game compatible with a full range of modern devices. We can support popular iOS & Android smartphones and tablets as well as desktop PCs and Macs with a modern browser. So there’s no need to maintain and submit different versions of games on each of the mobile app store platforms.

Stand-Alone Games Application Development

If you need a stand-alone Windows PC application, HTML5, along with tech such as Node Webkit, provides web game developers with one of the most versatile production platforms, meaning it’s ideal if you want to make games for online and offline use with minimal changes for each build.

If your game is for a PC based interactive kiosk (without a live internet connection) this makes HTML5 a viable option. You benefit from streamlined, cost effective, cross-platform HTML5 game development and the final build is indistinguishable from any other Windows application.

What Input Devices Can HTML5 Games Support?

HTML5 games can support many different input types depending on the application, including touch screens, mouse, keyboard and standard PC controllers such as joysticks, gamepads and steering wheels, via the HTML5 gamepad API.

Additional Features

Our HTML5 game development service includes a scoreboard as standard, where applicable. This can be implemented as a global online scoreboard via a server-side script for online games, or local scoreboards for Windows application builds.

We can also offer integration with a variety of backend systems and APIs, as well as development of custom server-side scripts, where needed. It’s best to discuss your functionality requirements with us, then we can figure out the best way to meet your goals.

Social media sharing buttons can also be included in your game, to make sharing your online game link easier on Twitter and Facebook. We can also fully integrate games with the Facebook Games API if needed.

Our Custom HTML5 Game Development Engine

We develop and maintain our own custom HTML5 game engine, rather than using off-the-shelf/open source game engines. This gives us an easy to modify and update framework that enables us to offer rapid, high quality custom cross-platform online game development services, using modern web technologies and techniques, without programming completely from scratch each time.

You’re not paying us to reinvent the wheel, or deal with device/browser specific quirks and bugs. Our game engine gives us a code base that covers fast WebGL canvas 2D graphics rendering and common game functions, so we can focus on using your budget on JavaScript code and asset production specific to your project.

We also get full control of adding game specific features that we and our clients need. This allows us to stay right at the forefront of cross-platform HTML5 game development.

Do You Offer Off-the-Shelf Customisable HTML5 Games

Unlike many HTML5 game development companies we don’t offer off-the-shelf customisable games, we develop each bespoke project for a specific client. This way we make sure every client gets a finished product that’s designed from the ground up.

This ensures you get the best fit for your requirements and target audience, rather than having to pick from a limited selection of pre-built HTML5 games.

Because making games using our own HTML5/JavaScript game engine allows us to streamline the online game development process, we can keep production budgets and timescales under control. So developing games from scratch doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
