Dr Herbert West writes “A trio of Google engineers have ported id Software’s gib-filled first-person shooter Quake II to browsers — you know, for kicks — as a way to show just what HTML5-compatible web browsers are capable of. According to the developers, ‘We started with the existing Jake2 Java port of the Quake II engine, then used the Google Web Toolkit (along with WebGL, WebSockets, and a lot of refactoring) to cross-compile it into JavaScript.’ More details are available on one developer’s blog, and installation instructions have been posted as well.”
