ManicSpaceMan now works in IE(9)!


Cast your mind back to about 6 months ago when Gareth, Martin and myself did the first 8WeekGame competition- Controversially I didn’t use XNA, but instead created a game which would run from your browser, using the new HTML5 canvas support- at the time it was a niche feature without wide browser support, but with the recent release of IE9, you can now finally play ManicSpaceman in IE! So go upgrade your browser and give it a go! Although I should note– for some reason the sounds don’t play in IE, despite me creating a whole MP3 set of the sounds specifically for it; so the best experience is still in FireFox or Chrome!

While on the subject of IE9- see here for the terribly useful developer notes on the new browser detailing all the new cool stuff it supports (css3/ html5 features) http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/ff468705#_Intro
