Mozilla, the non-profit organization behind the popular Firefox browser, and Little Workshop, French company that creates modern websites for desktop and mobile, were glad to announce the release of BrowserQuest, a new HTML5, massively multiplayer adventure game.

The game, which is reminiscent of classic video games, can be played in your browser, just as long as your browser supports HTML5 – and the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, and even Internet Explorer support it. Just click here to get started with the Browser Quest game on your desktop.

The game can also be played on your mobile devices (iOS devices, tablets and phones running Firefox or Android). Please note that the desktop version offers richer features and performance. The mobile version is experimental, it’s meant to provide a glimpse of the sort of games the mobile web will get in the future.

Before you go play BrowserQuest, perhaps you would like to know a little bit about it. Firefox Engineer Paul Rouget is here with the details:
“BrowserQuest is a tribute to classic video-games with a multiplayer twist. You play as a young warrior driven by the thrill of adventure. No princess to save here, just a dangerous world filled with treasures to discover. And it’s all done in glorious HTML5 and JavaScript.”

In the BrowserQuest game you get to create a character, and then you get to venture into a virtual world where you will find new equipment and items, and where you get to do battle against all sorts of enemies. Many other players from all corners of the globe are spread across different instances of the in-game world. You can see them, chat with them using an in-game chat system, and if you want to, you can team up and fight enemies with other players. It pays to explore dangerous places – the higher the danger, the higher the reward.
