Time waster: Play UT/Quake 3 in your browser with Phosphor

9 08 2007


Well, it’s not really UT or Quake 3, its called Phosphor, and it is an attempt to get MMOFPS games like Quake 3 or Unreal Tournament into the browser so anyone can play. There are minimum video requirements, but I’ve played it with a 1.4 Ghz Pentium 4 with integrated graphics and it ran ok. The bummer is that it uses shockwave, so linux users can’t join in the party, but apart from that, it is defenitely the most advanced game for the browser today. The graphics are really good, the AI is hard, the weapons are well done, it’s fantastic. All in all I’d say that if this thing ever comes out of beta it will really be able to compete with some good desktop games.

It’s a blast to play, get some friends and start fragging!
