enchant.js Sponsors onGameStart, the World’s First HTML5 Game Conference!

September 27, 2011

Last week saw the arrival of world’s first HTML5 game conference: onGameStart, held in Warsaw, Poland!

The picturesque streets were soon overflowing with game developers from all over the world:

Naturally, enchant.js was there in full force. In fact, we were one of just five “Awesome Sponsors,” which included such luminaries as BlackBerry and Microsoft Internet Explorer. From the moment they entered the event hall, guests couldn’t miss our presences on banners, fliers, and stickers:

When I say “game developers from all over the world,” however, I’m referring almost exclusively to Europe and America. The enchant.js team, in fact, were the only Asian attendees. As such, the Ubiquitous Entertainment Inc. CEO Ryo Shimizu’s presentation was a highly anticipated event for all the participants.

Though the event was held in English, most of the attendees do not speak English as a first language. With this in mind, Mr. Shimizu announced that he would hold his talk in JavaScript instead!

This got a great laugh from everyone. Rather than focusing on the technical details of enchant.js, Mr. Shimizu discussed the goals of the project: to provide children and young adults with the tools necessary to create the next generation of games. Programming isn’t a technical task for experts; it’s a tool for building the future.

We’re happy to report that enchant.js’ global debut was a huge success. Keep your eyes peeled for more appearances very soon!
