Showcasing awesome stuff people are making on the web.
GitHub Game Off Winners
We are super proud to be partnering with Github for our competition and we wanted to share with you the great entries from GitHub’s Game Off Competition.
Last month, Github’s @leereily organized a month long game jam asking developers to create a web-based game loosely built around the theme of forking, branching, cloning, pushing, and/or pulling. There were over 1337 forks and almost 200 playable games at the end of the competition. Hope your schedule is clear, there’s a lot of good games to play here!

What are hackable games?!

Imagine games you could hack and remix to make even better — with open Web building blocks like HTML, CSS and Javascript serving as the world’s ultimate “level editor.” (Want to replace that zombie’s face with a picture of your dog? Go right ahead.)

What if we looked at games as open, creative systems that, like the Web itself, are hackable by design?” says Mozilla’s Chloe Varelidi.

“Games are traditionally at the forefront of tech, continually pushing the envelope of what’s possible,” she says. “Mozilla is inviting you to re-imagine the Web as the console, and use the power of the browser to revolutionize the way we make and play games.”

Game jam at the Mozilla Festival in November

Get involved

Imagine the Web as an open gaming platform for the world. Where game players seamlessly become game creators. Where your favorite games work on any device, anytime, anywhere. And where your own personal web-based creations earn you internet fame, fortune and the adulation of gamers around the world.
Sound like fun? Game on.
