Disney have aquired a HMTL5 game creation engine from Finland. You boys should look into something like this for a means of generating money. Maybe there's another mega-company looking for something similar.

GL with it.

I read about that! Rocket Engine were never public so I've no idea what their tech is like (apparently it could run games without plugins on browsers without canvas as well, probably by some DOM manipulation). They were probably a fair bit further along, it's still early days for us. Still, it's a good sign people are interested! :)

I've just checked the game out they have linked on their page

http://www.warimals.com/play.html - Forced sign in with FB to play.

TBH it's crap. The graphics are good but it doesn't feel very good, not as good as some created on C2 already and as you say, it's early days. BTW it was bought by Disney for reportedly $20 Million! If you do make a mega million $ deal, can I have some?

It might have sold for $20m, but it may of come with a lot of conditions, IE, $1m upfront now, and other value released when certain performance targets are met. They might have a long contract with Disney as well to make all their HTMl5 games. I doubt it was $20m cash!
