Microsoft has brought the popular physics-based puzzle game Contre Jour to the web in HTML5. It was originally introduced as an iOS app, where it reached #1 on the App Store sales chart. The game (designed by Ukrainian developer Maksym Hryniv) requires 3 finger touch in some levels, a move that needs Internet Explorer 10 to perform. The interactive experience has rich design, visual features and gameplay that requires multiple simultaneous touch gestures. With a fast and fluid browser like IE 10, the gamer is thrown into the immersive environment. Hryniv said:

At the beginning, I thought that HTML5 just isn’t ready for this game; that we’ll have a lot of performance issues and things that are just impossible to implement using HTML5 or support in a browser. The biggest surprise for me was that performance is good, the physics are perfect and everything is just beautiful.

Check out the behind-the-scenes video below to see what went into making Contre Jour come to life on the web:
