Welcome to Mozilla Labs Gaming

We are excited to present to you the latest initiative from Mozilla Labs: Gaming.  Mozilla Labs Gaming is all about games built, delivered and played on the Open Web and the browser.  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.  And what better way than through games?  Traditionally games and game developers have been at the forefront of technology, often pushing the boundaries of what was thought possible.

Game On 2010 Competition

To kick off this initiative in style Mozilla Labs Gaming is going to launch our first ever 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. Stay tuned to the Mozilla Labs Gaming blog and follow us on Twitter for all the details!
