We believe that entertainment doesn’t stop at the desktop. Part of our brand promise is to make our games accessible…anytime, anywhere. And we’re championing HTML5 as the key to the door of truly open gaming.
Open Gaming on the Go
Whether by train, plane, or automobile, it seems like everyone’s always on their way to…somewhere. And we’re here to make the ride more entertaining. While we’ll always be a friend of traditional computers, we’re not living up to our brand promise to offer entertainment wherever people play if we limit ourselves to that platform alone.
But creating endless applications for each of the world’s hottest smart devices takes a lot of time…time we’d rather spend making new games. That’s why we’re so excited by the possibilities of the emerging technologies surrounding HTML5.
What is HTML5? HTML5 (“hypertext mark-up language 5”) is a new specification developed to enhance HTML-based web applications. HTML5 is also an umbrella term applied to the new features of the mark-up language and other new technologies surrounding it.
Using HTML5, we can create content on the web that’s accessible from any compatible mobile device, including iPhones, iPads, and Android devices running software version 2.0 or newer. This means we, and our developer partners, no longer need to waste time customizing applications for each and every device—going against the easy-and-accessible spirit of casual gaming.
With HTML5, our players can simply surf to their favorite Spil Games site using their mobile device and be automatically redirected to the HTML5 version of the site, where they’ll find exclusive content in mobile-friendly form. Our mobile platforms are set to increasingly become the center that unites all our players in play.
