#game engine

A game engine is a software development environment designed for creating video games. It provides a set of tools and libraries that allow developers to create the core functionality of a game, such as the physics engine, graphics engine, sound engine, scripting language, and user interface. In the case of JavaScript, a game engine would provide an API for developers to interact with the game's components, allowing them to write their own code to control the game's behavior.

Unreal Engine in WebAssembly/WebGPU
Top Content
Traditionally, browser games haven't been taken seriously. If you want to target the web, that traditionally has meant compromising on your vision as a game developer. Our team at Wonder Interactive is on a mission to change that, bringing one of the world's premiere native game engines to the browser - Unreal Engine. In our talk, we'll dive into our efforts porting the engine to the browser and carrying on the pioneering unfinished work started at Epic Games nearly a decade ago in collaboration with Mozilla. We'll dive into what this means for the future of games in the browser, and the open metaverse on the web.

Sometimes it is useful to interface with the browser in ways that Unity does not natively provide support for. In this talk, I will discuss how Unity builds games for the web, and how to extend Unity using Javascript to enable support for features not otherwise provided.
