Overview
Flash games revolutionized the industry. With a massive audience and eclectic group of games and developers, it created the prototype indie and laid the groundwork for the industry as a whole. While it’s easy to dismiss Flash as a battery-draining browser plug-in on the verge of death, under the scrutiny is a bedrock of innovation and developers dedicated to craft. Flash paved the way for games to take risk, raising a generation of fearless developers and cultivating the emergence of the modern indie scene. This talk will attempt to encapsulate the immense history of Flash games and how it has shaped the current game industry. This is as much a story about how Flash lived, rather than how Flash has (maybe) finally died.
