I’m getting into HTML5 game development when I’m bored – which is fairly often these days (usually a bad sign but we’ll keep an eye out). The project I have in mind is kind of inspired by a little proof of concept I created during the NASA Space Apps Challenge (a fairly disasterous experience in many ways which will partly be the topic of a future blog post). Now that the Google Earth API is dead, I’ve been looking around for possible solar system mapping frameworks and came across Cesium. Also found a link to NASAs API bank which is pretty cool.
I haven’t gotten round to playing with either. Let me finish a couple of tutorials first and then we’ll get adventurous.
