    A Flash Player emulator written in Rust

    Newgrounds created Ruffle [1], which is a Flash Player emulator written in Rust. Now that Flash is disabled by default, they use it to keep some (but not all) of their archive of Flash movies and games running.

    💥 JavaScript game library

    I grew up in China, playing flash games on 4399 in computer class is the dearest memory of every 90s kid. Some of them are super crappy or copied but it doesn't matter at all, what matters is we had so much fun.

    As a game dev I don't really like JavaScript and browser due to their weight, however the idea of being able to start having fun instantly for everyone everywhere is beautiful. That's also why I started making an accessible JavaScript game making toolkit (shameless ad warning): https://kaboomjs.com/. Hope is to help preserve the fast-make fast-share culture by providing more accessible tools.
