Whose the daddy ? 28. January 2009 Squize General, News (10) Slowly but surely getting closer to the deadlines for the current projects. That's not really a time to worry, as it means they'll be done soon.To everyone I owe an email too, sorry, I do love you, I just can't show it right now.Just to give the blog a slight shot in the arm, I found an article which you guys may find interesting.In-Depth: Biggest 10 Browser-Based Game Sites RankedA few surprises for me there, I thought some of the portals listed would have been higher up.

I think there will be a lot of smaller micro studios with existing 3D pipelines who will be looking at browser based content a lot more now, as an alternative to XNA and WiiWare ( And iPhone ), all of which are either already really saturated, or heading that way.It won't be long before mochi, google and gameJacket ads are in more than Flash, and perhaps that's the Flash killer app that everyone has been glancing over their shoulder looking for all this time. It won't be silverlight, or Unity or any other plug-in, it'll be mochi-ads and gameJacket. If you can make money from Flash and make the same amount from something done in Unity, which are you as a game developer going to want to play with the most ?Yeah, me too.Squize.
