AppGameKit HTML5 version goes live!

The Game Creators today launched the AppGameKit HTML5 version – a significant release which adds yet another dimension to the already successful development engine.

Lee Bamber, CEO of The Game Creators, said, “HTML5 is the latest version of Hypertext Markup Language, the code that describes how web pages look and operate. More crucially, it's the first version which fully supports native execution of 3D games content, which means no more plugins to install. With the new version of AppGameKit, you can now export your creations directly to HTML5 compatible files which can be run locally or uploaded to a server, allowing your users to play your apps and games instantly through their browser. Thanks to the WebGL, a component of HTML5 technology, you can even run 3D games under hardware acceleration and optionally switch to full screen to create a smooth immersive experience for everyone.”

AppGameKit Live Twitch Today @ 4PM BST

For the next few weeks, Lee Bamber will be hosting a 30-minute session on moving your Tier 1 BASIC knowledge over to Tier 2 C++ know-how, and demonstrate this live so you can see how easy the process of becoming a C++ programmer can be. We're doing this to help anyone who has been thinking of doing this generally, but specifically, we have a project being ramped up which will pay any coder £500 to write a small educational app if they can deliver it quickly and to a set quality standard.

As this will be a live event, you are welcome to post your questions during the broadcast and Lee will be happy to answer them. For more information on the opportunity to help us create small educational apps, you can contact Rick Vanner directly at rick@thegamecreators.com

For those wishing to join in the live session, it's at 4PM BST today, which is Thursday 21st April 2016, and Lee will be sure to post the video once it has been uploaded to YouTube here: https://forum.thegamecreators.com/thread/216950
