Sinister Soups Serving Musings On Game Development and Play

Embedded Gaming

That's a game up there. I mean an actual, playable version of the Secret of Monkey Island, embedded directly into the blog.

You can click on the Play Demo button and start playing this classic point and click adventure right now, no need to download anything, no need to install anything, and no need to interrupt your browsing.

Apparently this company, InstantAction, is going to allow you to embed games in HTML just as easily you can currently embed YouTube videos.

Of course, I don't know how practical this sort of thing will really be. I imagine you won't see hardware-intensive games being embedded any time soon, but in the meantime, it's a neat little look into one possible future of online distribution.

So give it a whirl, see what you think. It's Monkey Island after all, you really can't go wrong with Monkey Island.
