  1. I've spend the last 3 months working on Facebook Messenger games. It's potentially a big market, but Facebook need to make lots of changes to catch up with apps on IOS and Android. For web developers (as opposed to app developers) Facebook instant games is very different and requires a lot additional work plus paying the Apple Developer Fee. And then there's a review process. I've written an article on Linkedin that discusses a lot of issues. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/working-facebook-messenger-instant-games-conor-o-nolan/ Comments and feedback welcome.

  3. Hi there. Does anyone had a pleasure to build a Facebook Instant Game? I've spent two days trying to scale my Phaser game in the Facebook for Android. Currently scaling works nicely on desktop, in a responsive viewport of the dev console, in the mobile Chrome -- namely everywhere, except the Facebook app. Seems like it just ignores my settings, sprites are displayed at full width, despite the canvas (and game) dimensions are correct. Here are my init and boot scripts, the scaling logic is copypasted from a random gist: // init code FBInstant.initializeAsync().then(function() { FBInstant.setLoadingProgress(50); FBInstant.setLoadingProgress(100); FBInstant.startGameAsync().then(function() { /** Config part */ var FIXED_SIZE = 720; var FIXED_MEASURE = 'Width'; /** Name mapping */ var fixedName = FIXED_MEASURE; var resName = fixedName === 'Height' ? 'Width' : 'Height'; var FIXED_NAME = fixedName.toUpperCase(); var RES_NAME = resName.toUpperCase(); /** Measures of document */ var documentElement = document.documentElement; var documentFixed = window['inner' + fixedName]; var documentRes = window['inner' + resName]; var ratio = documentRes / documentFixed; /** Canvas measures */ var canvasFixed = FIXED_SIZE; var canvasRes = FIXED_SIZE * ratio; var screen = {}; screen['CANVAS_' + FIXED_NAME] = canvasFixed; screen['CANVAS_' + RES_NAME] = canvasRes; console.log(screen.CANVAS_WIDTH); console.log(screen.CANVAS_HEIGHT); game = new Phaser.Game(screen.CANVAS_WIDTH, screen.CANVAS_HEIGHT, Phaser.CANVAS); game.state.add('Boot', Boot); game.state.add('Preload', Preload); game.state.add('GameTitle', GameTitle); game.state.add('Main', Main); game.state.add('GameOver', GameOver); //Start the first state game.state.start('Boot'); }); }); // boot code var Boot = function(game) {}; Boot.prototype = { preload: function() { }, create: function() { this.scale.scaleMode = Phaser.ScaleManager.EXACT_FIT; this.scale.pageAlignHorizontally = true; this.scale.pageAlignVertically = true; this.game.scale.refresh(); this.game.state.start("Preload"); } } Would appreciate any help!

    Using Phaser for FB Instant Games

    Hi, I am planning to develop a game for Facebook Instant Games platform using Phaser. Should I choose Phaser 3? or should I continue with Phaser 2 ? Is there a huge difference in the APIs of both version? . I would highly appreciate your opinion on this. Best Regards

    What are your plans for 2017?

    It looks like 2017 is going to be a huge year for HTML5. Flash is officially being dropped from Chrome and Firefox, touch payments will become prominent with the launch of Apple Pay and Google Pay on the mobile web, and Facebook is launching Instant Games in a renewed show of faith in HTML5. Are you going to capitalize on any of these shifts in the market? What are your plans for 2017 and beyond?
  6. At PlayCanvas we've just launched our latest game. It's an Instant Game on Facebook Messenger called Master Archer. It's a simple idea, fire your bow and hit the fruit, but don't hit the boy! The game was made in-house at PlayCanvas and we used the Spine Plugin to do the animation. The game is designed for mobile (playable in Messenger and your Facebook news feed) but it works great on desktop too. Challenge your mates in Messenger now or you can try it from the Facebook page. Or if you're not a Facebook user try it on our site.
