When I started testing 'Reaching for the Stars' (my first Unity browser game), I noticed with something of a shock that my web page was completely broken on a tablet.
I obviously hadn't realized that mobile browsers do not have a plugin for the Unity web player !
I have now fixed the page so that it at least shows a message when you're trying to
play the game from a mobile browser.
But. It is a serious deal breaker for me ...
Another thing that I've come to realize, is that there aren't really all that many websites
that accept Unity browser games. Websites that actually get visited by a fair number of people, that is.
Maybe that will change in the future. But for now : it is kind of a sad situation.
All of the above has made me think about Flash again.
About how I used to love working with the software ...
I know. I know. SWF-files aren't all that well supported by mobile browsers either.
But. There is the Puffin Browser. And there's the Photon Flash Player & Browser for Android. And apparently, Opera Mobile can also play Flash movies now ...
So, there's some reason for optimism here ...
Plus. There are (still ?) a large number of websites that showcase Flash games ... And those games do get played by lots of people ...
I went to the Adobe website looking for information about "Flash CC" ...
It seems you can no longer buy the software. You have to rent it !!!
And ... the rent you are charged, depends on where you live !
So. If you live in the States, you will pay $20/month.
But if you have the misfortune of living in Europe, you will pay €25/month.
That is about $32. For the same piece of software.
Now what's up with that, Adobe ?!
