    Demo of Blender Game Engine Web Browser Plugin

    Hello!

    I guess everyone knows about the lovely and open source Blender 3D modelling and animation package. It has a game engine with it, and just last week a web browser plugin was released for it. The plugin is available on Linux and Windows for Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Internet Explorer.

    Here's a YouTube video of a physicsy fps demo I made which is running in the chrome browser.

    Here's the web page where the game is embedded.

    Here's where you can download the plugin. See below about the developing security situation.



    This plugin could really compete with Flash and that's important because as great as the web standards movement is, Flash isn't going to go away and we need an open source alternative/competitor. Blender is a much more capable game editor than Flash and I would love to see an open source application wipe the floor with it's nearest closed source rival.

    It's being sandboxed at the moment and there's definitely an opportunity for people to help with this and other aspects of the project. Here's the getting involved page at the plugin's website. It's called 'Burster' by the way.

    If anyone can help directly, or knows someone who could, or knows a forum to post in that might find a person, well it'd be fantastic.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video and screenies and maybe even play some of the demos. And I'd love to hear what people think in general of the idea.
    Cheers
    Toby

    Fantastic!

    I hope that this OS, Flash alternative gets LOTS of support & really takes off.
