Spil Games is gunning for HTML5 in a big way
Spil Games is gunning for HTML5 in a big way
December 4, 2013 | By Mike Rose

Casual game network Spil Games today announced that it will invest $5 million in developers creating HTML5 games during 2014, as the company looks to push the HTML5 platform.

This money will go towards helping developers port existing games to HTML5, as well as creating new titles utilizing HTML5. Funds will also be set aside for monetizing and marketing these games to the platform's 180 million monthly active users.

Dan Prigg, senior director of games at Spil Games, noted that developing native apps can be expensive, especially if multiple versions are required for multiple platforms, and reasoned that HTML5 development can be a great solution.

"With our massive investment next year, we are demonstrating our confidence in the future of HMTL5," he added. "Our goal is to help remove the risks for developers with financial, technical and marketing support."

And Spil isn't stopping there. The company plans to release around 500 new HTML5 games next year, as part of its big HTML5 push.

Those developers interested in grabbing part of this investment should fire an email to the company.
