Bastion is released on Chrome web store. Just installed it a runs really smooth. Looks like they are using Native Client.
Hadn't heard of this yet; sounds really awesome. Does Construct 2 output native client when exporting to the chrome store, or plan to support it in the future?
Doesn't load for me, I get an error after 19% of preloader.
Ah, really nice game. Love the narration. Looks like they're using native client. Construct 2 doesn't support that yet, but it's one of many ideas for the distant future.
Is that needed for in app payments, or would we just need a plug?
No, you don't need native client for that, you can do it in any web page.
Ah, well that's a real pro for the web store there.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
I just wrote an article about this actually.
I am looking to do everything on the chrome store this year.
Firefox and Opera dudes on the subject of Native Client:
hese native apps are just little black boxes in a webpage. [...] We really believe in HTML, and this is where we want to focus.
aCl seems to be 'yearning for the bad old days, before the web'. Native Client is about building a new platform ? or porting an old platform into the web [...] it will bring in complexity and security issues, and it will take away focus from the web platform
Yeah, Native Client is Google's version of ActiveX, but actually done securely (so don't get as nervous like you do with ActiveX - Native Client can't actually affect your computer at all). Interesting technology, but still a bit obscure, no idea if it will take off.
Wow! Awesome game! But my PC is too weak for this <img src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
It's exciting to see some big HTML5 games on Chrome web store.
