Mozilla Embraces Open Web Gaming

Mozilla announced its newest initiative: Gaming based on open web technologies.

"Mozilla Labs Gaming is all about games built, delivered and played on the Open Web and the browser," reads the official announcement. "We want to explore the wider set of technologies which make immersive gaming on the Open Web possible. We invite the wider community to play with cool, new tech and aim to help establish the Open Web as the platform for gaming across all your Internet connected devices."

Modern Open Web technologies introduced a complete stack of technologies such as Open Video, audio, WebGL, touch events, device orientation, geo location, and fast JavaScript engines which make it possible to build complex (and not so complex) games on the Web. With these technologies being delivered through modern browsers today, the time is ripe for pushing the platform.

To kick off this initiative in style Mozilla Labs Gaming is going to launch an international gaming competition: Game On 2010. This competition will be open to all developers interested in creating awesome games using the latest in Open Web technologies.
