Mozilla Labs Gaming
Mozilla Labs hopes to bring better in-browser games to the web.
The Mozilla Labs developers have announced the launch of a new project aimed at helping game developers create innovative games for the web. The project, simply called Mozilla Labs Gaming, will help to provide the platform and tools that developers need to build games using open web technologies, such as HTML5 video and audio, WebGL, geo-location, touch events and fast JavaScript engines.

In a post on the Mozilla Labs blog discussing the announcement, Mozilla Labs Director Pascal Finette says that the availability of modern open web technologies "make it possible to build complex (and not so complex) games on the Web," adding that, "With these technologies being delivered through modern browsers today, the time is ripe for pushing the platform."

To kick off the new project, Mozilla's research and development section said that it will launch its first international gaming competition. The Game On 2010 competition will open at the end of September and be open to all developers interested in creating games for the web.
