Flash From The Past

Arcade's Browser Games

One goal of being a game designer is to reach as many people as possible with your creative vision. Adobe Flash is a wonderful vehicle for this. With a large install base across various browsers and devices, it allows students to quickly prototype, implement and distribute their games to a large audience. In turn, students receive direct feedback from their players, allowing them to learn, improve and iterate on their concepts.
