  1. Some time ago, we launched what turned out to be a really popular browser game: TANX. It's an online tank battle game and it's designed to be all about instant mayhem and fun. But we always felt as though it wasn't pushing WebGL hard enough. So we've spent the last few months revamping it. Here's the result: It's now using the PBR (physically based rendering) support in PlayCanvas. The level, tanks and power ups have all been rebuilt from scratch. So, it's the same great gameplay but with fancy new graphics. Read more about it here. And if you want to play, head to: Please send us your feedback and suggestions. Want to help us out? We'd really appreciate a retweet: See you on the battlefield.
  2. 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.
  3. Hey. What do you think is the best option ? I know there won't be probably a "best" option but what would you guys choose? Babylon seems more complex than playcanvas but that might bring some more advantages to the table as well idk...
  4. Blast Arena is a modern 3d bomberman multiplayer game made with PlayCanvas. I launched Open Beta for it about two weeks ago, and after many improvements to the servers and polishing, I feel like it's ready for more people to come in! It is a tiny multiplayer game with what you can have some fun already, I also just launched a winter update! You can play it over here, let me know what you think of it - mostly seeking honest feedback approaching a bigger launch.

  7. Check out the latest game from PlayCanvas: SWERVE! PLAY NOW It's a simple but addictive casual game. It's super-lightweight, and is playable after loading just 1.8MB of data. It should run pretty much everywhere: smartphones, tablets, desktop. HOW CAN YOU HELP? If you use Twitter and like the game, please retweet our announcement. We'd really appreciate it!

  12. Counter-Strike 1.6

    My first project in PlayCanvas. I am creating a version of Counter-Strike 1.6 Web Browser. Not much, in fact almost anything yet because I have difficulty in exporting models / textures / etc for PlayCanvas. My other difficulty is the lack of knowledge on the subject. But it is practicing what you learn. Page:
  13. Intro to 3D with PlayCanvas

    I've written a tutorial on how to start your journey into 3D gaming with PlayCanvas - both the engine and the editor. Check it out: Building up a basic demo with PlayCanvas If you're a beginner, want to learn the basics of the engine and see how the online editor works - this tutorial is exactly for you.
  14. PLAYHACK with PlayJam starts today. It's a 6 week game jam / contest. If you've got a good idea for a game involving robots, rockets or UFOs. It's worth taking a look at our PLAYHACK. We've got £2000 for the first prize, £1000 for second and £500 for third. These events are pretty exclusive so if you're a good developer you stand a great chance of winning. More info on our blog. Feel free to ask me any questions.
  15. We've just announced that next week we're bringing back our PLAYHACK game jam. This time it's sponsored by PlayJam, and they've put up £3500 in prize money (about US$5000). Full details will arrive on Monday when we start, but if you've seen our previous PLAYHACKs it's going to be pretty similar. We'll give you a project to start from with some 3D assets to use in your game. You take that and run with it to build a game over 6 weeks. At the end of that time, PlayCanvas and PlayJam will judge the best games and we'll announce the winners. More info on the blog post and watch out for the launch announcement with the theme and assets on Monday.
  16. Hi Everyone, I've just released a PlayCanvas runtime for the Spine Animation Tool. You can grab the code over on Github. To make sure everything works I ported over their sample game Super Spineboy. It runs really nicely. The runtime is available as a simple code plugin, so you can drop it into the PlayCanvas Editor and incorporate Spine Animations into your 3D WebGL games. I also created a simple project that just shows off the regular animations. Hope you enjoy.
  17. [PlayCanvas] TANX

    TANX Tech: PlayCanvas, NodeJS, VanillaJS Play Now! Online, multiplayer tank battle game. Battle opponents from across the world. The first team to destroy 32 enemy tanks wins the game! Play on mobile or desktop. Made with love using the awesome PlayCanvas Game Engine! Originally game was made within 12 hours, and had a core gameplay and was multiplayer day-1. Then we've polished it a bit, and made several improvements. When I have some spare time, I add few other things now and then. This game was played almost 2,000,000 times now, without any advertising, and is supporting it self.

  19. Here is a playable version of my Desert Moon Defender game I built in a week using PlayCanvas. This was my first project in PlayCanvas and it was a great experience. The game is currently lacking the "in space Boss fight" after each level.
  20. Hi everyone, We're onto our 5th PLAYHACK, our monthly game jam competition now. The March event is a special one though. We've teamed up with ARM to give away a Chromebook 2 to our favorite entry. If you were ever thinking of giving PlayCanvas a shot, this month is a great month to pick it up and give it a try. This month, the aim is to build a game using the Buggy model. We've already set up the vehicle physics (if you want to use them). But apart from using the Buggy, the rest of the game design is up to you. Can't wait to see what people come up with. More details in the blog post.
  21. Hi all, Just wanted to let you know that last week we published Dungeon Fury on to the Play Store and Amazon App store. We've talked a lot in the past about how PlayCanvas can be used to create cross-platform games, but we want to take this all the way through to completion. So we've know got Dungeon Fury running on Desktop Web, Mobile Web and Native Android (iOS coming soon). We used CocoonJS (which I'm sure you're all familiar with) to build the Android version and I'm really pleased with the Canvas+ performance. Dungeon Fury runs at a solid 60FPS on my phone. We also integrated the native ads from Cocoon into the android version so, on mobile web we run Leadbolt and on Android we run ads using MoPub. Works nicely.
  22. PLAYHACK December

    Last month we ran our first PLAYHACK, the first of our monthly game jams. Instead of a general game theme we give you a cool 3D asset for you to make any game you like with. This month we have a Christmas theme with this awesome Santa's sleigh model. It's just for fun so the rules are simple. Start by forking our original project. Build any game you like, endless-runner, racing game, arcade, etc, but somewhere you must include this month's asset. Our favourite game at the end of the month gets featured on our home page. Last month the theme asset was a sci-fi Hover Tank. Over 40 people forked the project and our favourite game was called SRL. A super-tough stealth rogue-like. Would be great to see some of the community here have a go!
  23. PLAYHACK January

    For January our monthly game jam PLAYHACK is looking really cool. Think puzzle games, platformers, match-3... The rules are simple, we give you a 3D model (or 4), you make any game you like using them. This should be a great one for those of you without much 3D game dev experience. Head over to our announcement to get started.
  24. Big news! Physically Based Rendering (PBR) has landed in the open source PlayCanvas Engine. The graphics capabilities of the engine really have taken a massive leap forwards.
