Game Presentation Platform

Open-Source Presentation Platform

This presentation platform was developed to demonstrate the state of browser capabilities for gaming. We developed an open-source slide deck presentation that is actually a game running in the browser. While the initial impetus for the project was to showcase browser capabilities, it become clear in our prototyping phase that it was an incredibly engaging interface. The user is presented with a typical slide-deck-like setup - white slides with a background. However, there are additional touch interface buttons (left, right, up, down arrows) as the user begins to “play” the character below the slides will run, walk, jump across the screen, revealing new content in the slides. On some levels the character must jump over or through certain obstacles to move forward.
