Ah, the internet does love lists. Gamepix recently published some pretty comprehensive lists of current 2D and 3D game engines. All of the usual suspects are present and many I’d never heard of, including existing engines that now support HTML5/WebGL as an export target.

Shiny Gauntlet, a roguelike action rpg game made with html5 technologies by the multi-talented Glen at Spritewrench, has now entered early access! I gave it a go and thoroughly enjoyed my time. If you’re even the least bit interested I highly reccomend checking it out, you’ve nothing to lose because it’s free! Currently there are both Windows and OSX versions available for download, though I’ve done my part and whined for a Linux version which may be out at some point in the future. Some current feature highlights include:
- Randomly generated, ever expanding dungeon
- 21 playable classes, each with their own abillities and passives
- 23 enchanted rings to collect
- Leader boards
- Gamepad support (sorta)
