Since Firefox OS was born, at GamePix we were among the first interested in this new operating system, mainly because of its great support to many HTML5 features. Also, we were pretty sure we would have released some cool apps for Firefox OS devices, so we had to keep a – very close – eye on it!
A few days ago we discovered a very interesting book, written by André Garzia – HTML5 developer working for Mozilla in Rio de Janeiro, the book is called Building Games for Firefox OS and it’s “a quick guide on how to create casual 2D games with HTML5”.
We would like to quote an interesting excerpt from the book that we are sure will arise the interest of many game devs to discover more of Firefox OS.
THE PLATFORM THAT HTML5 DESERVES
About the author of the book:
My name is Andre Alves Garzia and I am a app/web developer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. My work is mostly related to HTML5 where I develop mobile apps and web apps and also with the joyful language known as LiveCode doing projects related to networks and databases. I enjoy traveling, discovering new cultures (… and food!) and meeting new people. I like computer languages and alternative operating systems. I read more books then it is healthy and I am learning the pennywhistle… I also should sleep more.
This article wants to be a tribute to this book, his author and the contribution they are giving to the HTML5 game development ecosystem.
