The future of web gaming has suddenly seen a shock of interest once again. Through the fall of Kongregate and other more-degenerate gaming websites, there had to of been a natural decline of those playing hand-crafted, quirky free-to-play browser games.

And yet, thanks to ninjamuffin99, the market now appears openly (and readily) available for anyone willing to put their ideas to the grindstone.

We're joined by Lars Doucet (larsiusprime) and Nicholas Cannasse (creator of Haxe, the language that brought to you HaxeFlixel,) and host PsychoGoldfish, who has been friends with some of the biggest names on the indie market, and finally gets to flex his personal knowledge about the one-click, low-investment that is the browser game industry.

Lars will explain how Steam and Patreon have cornered the market for creators, but also why there's still viable options out there for those wanting more freedom to leave such platforms, as well as the type of environment that is equitable for browser game creators. Josh will supply Newgrounds' position within this strategic market of promoting and earning. Nicholas will explain how a powerful engine like Haxe is used in the capable hands of game devlopers. And finally, Cam will offer his experience from making FNF open source and what it means to garner attention and funding.

So strap in, tap in, and listen to The Future of Web Games !
