How JScrambler is helping us to protect our code

It's wonderful to make html5 games and javascript is a nice programing language but unfortunately everyone can access to the source code of our games. And that includes those cheeky guys who doesn't want to respect existing license agreements or those just looking for "inspiration" for their next cloned game.

Luckily we have an ally called JScrambler.

JScrambler is quite intuitive and it's web based. There are some other javascript obfuscators but JScrambler offers the most complete and secure solution.

Stories can too be told by level menus

We develop casual games, which in narrative terms means that, generally, stories tend to be overlooked in our field:
  • Some odd pigs stole your eggs and you immolate your people (birds) to erase their kind.
  • Someone leaves a hungry critter at your doorstep and you feed it a la "Home Alone". 
  • You use a machine-gun as a jetpack to burst into a factory and gather some cash that would allow you to get a green mohawk haircut (??).
The list could go on and on, and the quality of stories would diminish until we got to: "a sugar-dealer majordomo invites you to move candies around".

Before going any further we must say that despite their minimalist stories, these four games rely on a solid gameplay that's been proven highly motivating for millions of players.

Pocahontas Slots an HTML5 game about love, freedom and golden coins

We are about to release Pocahontas Slots, a HTML5 slots machine that we'd like to sell in the form of non exclusive licenses.

The game mechanism itself is not particularly complicated, but instead, lots of work came from the visual effects tweaking and its polishing. You'll certainly notice that once you play the game, specially if you are familiar with the current state of HTML5 games.

We're eggstatic with our new HTML5 game!

At the moment we are hatching these precious purple eggs at the studio. Having tea while sitting on an egg is a mind widening and pleasant experience for us. Also, the luminiscent green ooze gives us a very optimistic feeling about the creatures brewing inside. But I must admit there's a bad point in all this situation: having someone else's sticky slime in the crotch... (¬ -¬)"
More news soon!

HTML5 games

Recently we got 2 new assignments. Our customers wanted html5 games. 

We took a look to the available frameworks out there and decided to use cocos2d-x - html. Some time ago we developed a couple of games using the c++ branch and were familiar with that framework. It has a lot of features but it's a bit slow on lower end devices.

The other project consists of a port of our True Make Up games. For that we'll use createjs, because of its simplicity and its texture manipulation features.
