Powered by WebSockets WebSockets are a new technology enabling bi-directional communication between a browser and a server on the web. BrowserQuest is a demo of how this technology can be used today to create a real-time multiplayer game in a single webpage. When you start to play, your browser opens up a WebSocket connection to one of several load-balanced game servers. Each server hosts multiple world instances and handles the player synchronization and game logic within all instances. Because the server code is running on Node.js, both the server and client codebases share a small portion of the same JavaScript source code. Server code is available on Github. BrowserQuest screenshot Built on the Web platform BrowserQuest makes extensive use of different web technologies, such as: HTML5 Canvas, which powers the 2D tile-based graphics engine. Web workers, allowing to initialize the large world map without slowing down the homepage UI. localStorage, in which the progress of your character is continually saved. CSS3 Media Queries, so that the game can resize itself and adapt to many devices. HTML5 audio, so you can hear that rat or skeleton die!

You might even stumble upon a couple of surprises along the way… Technology BrowserQuest is a demonstration of a number of modern web technologies. It is written in HTML5, utilizing WebSockets for multiplayer networking, and is playable from modern web browsers. The client makes use of HTML5's canvas element to render the graphics, web workers to initialize the map without affecting the rest of the page, localStorage to save progress, media queries to dynamically resize the game to the device, and HTML5 Audio to render the sound. The server is written in JavaScript, and runs in Node.js. The server and browser communicate using WebSockets. Both BrowserQuest's client and server source code are available on GitHub.[2] Its code is licensed under MPL 2.0. Content is licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0.[3] Gameplay In BrowserQuest, players can interact with each other using the in-game chat system, or by working together to defeat enemies.[2] There are achievements available to unlock as one plays. Loot is dropped when players defeat the enemies, which can be picked up by any player. Loot includes the invincibility potion, which changes a player's outfit to appear like the Firefox logo, and various gear. At one point in time, the system recorded over 1,900 concurrent users playing at the same time.[4][5][6] Influences Mozilla does not currently have the resources to maintain BrowserQuest.
