I’m usually so busy that I miss cool stuff sometimes, anyway, I’ve discovered today that Facebook will now host WebGL (including Unity) and HTML5 game content for you for free. So gone are the days of having to host your own and get a SSL certificate etc.. There are some limitations however such as 500MB max content size, 500 max files and no use of scripting languages such as PHP. Still for most uses its great.
You would not believe how m any times I had to retype that last paragraph! My son gave me a gaming keyboard and after years using tghe same keyboard, its proving very difficult getting used to one with bigger keys!
Ok, more details about this cool new Facebook feature here
New made with Marmalade and IwGame Engine game now available for PlayBook and BlackBerry 10 OS devices. In the developers own words:
“Well, after only 3 weeks work my latest game – Chain Word – has been approved for sale on the BlackBerry app store.
It was written using IwGame 0.4 for Marmalade, and I’ve been very impressed with the API. Today I have added support for Scoreloop leaderboards, and will be adding Challenges soon (not uploaded yet though). I may also produce a free version with adverts / IAP.
A simple word game – how long a chain can you make?
- Start with a 3 or 4 letter word
- Add, Remove, Change or Swap letters to make a new word

If anyone wants to know how I achieved anything, please let me know and I will post the relevant codes. I also have this crazy thought running round the back of my head about open-sourcing the thing, but I’ve modified the IwGame engine slightly so I’m not sure how that would work…”
Congratulations to SyGem Limited on an excellent product well done.
