Digital Harmony Games has announced that the beta for it’s new real-time cross-platform gaming technology has opened up for developers to sign-up, test out and introduce their cross-platform technology into their current and future games. This will let all developers connect all smartphone, tablet, and browser platforms into the same environment in a cloud-based network.
Game Closure is at Google I/O 2011 this year over at the developer’s sandbox showing off their new pure HTML5 game called Pop Star Defense. You might find it odd that a browser game developer is at Google I/O but having been developed using HTML5, Pop Star Defense is playable on any mobile device through it’s browser.
This is literally one of the crazier projects I’ve come across in a long time in gaming. Question: What do you get when you combine Flash Player, Unity3D, Google Maps? A browser based wicked looking Flash game that uses real world maps/locations. Throw an Android phone into the mix and now you have portable F1 3D racing in any real city.
