+ - Auralux release for browsers shows Emscripten reaching indie devs 1 1

Games using the technology are compatible with most modern browsers and require no separate install. We've seen Epic Games demonstrate UnrealEngine 4 in browser as well as Unity show off a variety of games. Now as the technology matures, indie devs are looking to get into the mix, including this near 1 to 1 port of E McNeill's Auralux, a simplified RTS game, from Android and iOS.

    Why can't I just have a browser that takes a 10th of the CPU and memory and doesn't do all this other BS?

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
