Artillery today unveiled its eponymous HTML5 browser gaming platform, which the start-up claims "turns the modern browser into a game console."
Due for launch next year, Artillery's HTML5-based platform technology is shown off in a new YouTube video that provides a look at how the system works as well as offering information on developer tools. The video shows real-time strategy game Project Atlas running on the system.
"Our browser-based platform will be transformative for the industry," said Artillery CEO Ankur Pansari. "It makes core games easier to develop, play and enjoy, and provides everyone with a browser, access to triple A quality games typically only playable using a console or PC download."
Earlier this month Artillery announced the appointment of Starcraft competitive gaming champion Sean "Day" Plott as the company's head of games. "Project Atlas is designed specifically as an accessible, multiplayer experience," said Plott. "Players click a link, and a few seconds later they are all playing together."
