Tweaking

Written by gijs. Posted in Artwork

We have now been working some 9 months on Together Alone. And although our todo list is still quite extensive, at least we now have a todo list! So the end is in sight. But as so often happens when a project gets near the end, I start “fixing” things. Which isn’t a bad thing necessarily, but also not always that productive when you are trying to finish a project.

Porting from HTML5 to Haxe: the Whys and the Hows

What follows is technical mumbo-jumbo for licensed geeks. Meanwhile, the rest of you could play our beta! :-)

Technically, our game Together Alone has a bit of a weird history. “Normal” casual/web games usually start out as Flash. Then, if the game is succesful and the creator wants to target multiple platforms, she may port it to Haxe/NME. The language Haxe is very similar to ActionScript and NME reimplements the Flash API, so porting is relatively easy. Together, Haxe and NME allow you to target not only Flash but also HTML5, Windows, Mac, iOS or Android.
