The defining Real-Time Strategy game, Command & Conquer, is in the process of being rendered entirely in HTML5 for use on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Originally released in 1995, Westwood Studio’s epic game of strategic unit control and base-building ripped into the strategy gaming market with a vengeance. Since it’s inception, the C&C franchise has seen the release of nearly 20 sequels and spin-off games, fleshing out the universe’ lore as well as inspiring many other developers to follow an RTS format for their games.
Looking to bring this once-popular game to the masses again, the enlightened Aditya Ravi Shankar has begun the project, keeping all copyrights intact, with a promise to “Take this game as far as possible.” I have personally sunk some time into the game and, while the HTML version remains unfinished, its core is truly C&C.
