As you could hear, Flash player is going to be disabled in the browsers soon, so thousands of browser games will become unplayable. We want to save (at least some of) our games from this fate, so we decide to port them to HTML5. The first game to be ported is Cursed Treasure: Don’t Touch My Gems, that is 9 years old btw!
We used OpenFL to port it and added some improved art assets from the iPad version that was created long ago. Here is what we got:
The game is now uploaded to many sites and Kongregate is among them. It was uploaded as a new game instead of replacing the existing Flash version to avoid the players losing their saved games. We thought the players may dislike the fact that we’re uploading the same game again and downvote it, but the opposite happened! The players were happy that the game is ported to HTML5 and it even made it to the 2nd place in the monthly game contest. And it was really close to becoming #1!
That was really cool! And since OpenFL allows mobile app builds too, we ported the game to iOS and Android too and published it in the stores recently. The game is free with ads, you can find it here:
