Submission + - Mozilla and Epic Games Teaming Up To Bring Unreal Engine Gaming To The Browser (hothardware.com)

MojoKid writes: "There’s no doubt that gaming on the Web has improved dramatically in recent years, but Mozilla believes it has developed new technology that will deliver a big leap in what browser-based gaming can become. The company developed a highly-optimized version of Javascript that’s designed to “supercharge” a game’s code to deliver near-native performance. And now that innovation has enabled Mozilla to bring Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 to the browser. As a sort of proof of concept, Mozilla debuted this BananaBread game demo that was built using WebGL, Emscripten, and the new JavaScript version called “asm.js”. Mozilla says that it’s working with the likes of EA, Disney, and ZeptoLab to optimize games for the mobile Web, as well."
