HTML5 remains a relevant tech for mobile and browser games. Games for social networks and platforms like Facebook Instant Games are exclusively HTML5.
In response to continued demand from platforms and ongoing interest from developers, WN Media Group decided to run a free one-day event on HTML5.
It will be held on July 7. At the event, devs will be able to find publishers, investors or partners, get professional feedback, and establish or strengthen relations with platforms and engines.
Important: developers will also be able to submit their project to a virtual exhibition as part of the event. It will be easier for publishers and platforms to notice them there.
