New Gamefroot Replacing Old Gamefroot

We’re really excited by how well the new version of Gamefroot has been received. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be ensuring all your games from the old Gamefroot are accessible in the new Gamefroot editor at make.gamefroot.com. Once this process is complete, we’ll be taking down the old Gamefroot so that we can focus on maintaining a single game making environment. With that focus, we can continue to make Gamefroot more powerful and easy to use.

The old Gamefroot was designed to create Flash games, but the new Gamefroot creates HTML5 / Javascript games, which means your games will run not just in your web browser, but also on modern devices such as your Android or iPhone. Old technologies become obsolete – such is the way of Flash, and the Flash games era has been rapidly drawing to a close. We realised HTML5 was going to be the future of the web, and now that future has become a reality (even Youtube has stopped displaying videos in Flash, and now uses HTML5 video).

We hope you continue to enjoy using Gamefroot. We’d love to hear your feedback, so please send us a message here with your questions or comments.

Regards,
The Gamefroot Team
