howler.js v1.1.0

Just a few months back, we decided to tackle the challenge of audio in the browser for our upcoming new game, CasinoRPG.

Oklahoma Game Developers (OKGD)

One of our goals at GoldFire Studios is not only to make incredible games on top of an incredible gaming platform, but we also want to grow and strengthen the game development community in our home state of Oklahoma. We know there are lots of people in Oklahoma that are interested in game development (whether it be as a hobby or as a career), but the community is scattered. So, we've decided to organize a monthly meetup group called Oklahoma Game Developers, which will meet in and around...
