Hello everyone.

As I said before on this forum, I am working on a HTML5 Gaming console + API. The feature set that I have in place at the moment is a library for clients and the game. Next to that I have created a dashboard for the console in which games can be selected. The game-view is then loaded into the dashboard window. I also created a client to control the console dashboard (users can open this client on their phone). If a game is selected, the game player view is loaded into the client. The setup uses sockets and emitters to send events from and to the game and clients. I also have some ideas to create a standalone client which contains the socket logic but does not bind the game to the dashboard and client setup.

Till now these ideas came from me but I would like to create an actual feedback loop. Filling in this poll would be a first step towards this. If I have a first version online (which will not take long anymore), and people would like to give the platform a try, I would like to setup online developer meetings to get feedback on the platform and new features. Would someone be interested to help me on this journey? Feel free to signup at: www.xentha.com or join me on the Xentha slack (http://xentha.slack.com). All code is open-source and can be found at https://github.com/bdekk/xentha

If you have any remarks about what audience is interesting to target, how to monetize or what type of games you would like to see for an HTML5 console and you cannot find your options in the poll, please drop me a line.

Thank you in advance for answering the poll :)

Hello @tips4design,

A virtual console which is a dashboard website that can show and load games, a client website that can show and load the client side of a game (buttons or inputs for the client to press that control the game) and an API that handles the communication between players and the game screen. Pretty much like www.airconsole.com (for comparison).
