Both platforms have been compatible for a while now but today we are pleased to announce that our friends over at Gamelab have just launched version 1.0 of their HTML5 game framework Kiwi.js and a much needed In-App purchasing Plugin for CocoonJS! What we found is that this new version of Kiwi is easy for developers to use, comes with a ton of documentation, runs fast and offers a lot of useful features. The In-App Purchasing Plugin (which comes with an example store fashioned off the Kingdom Rush store) allows users to sell their consumable game items to players and to create virtual currencies within their game. Also available for purchase is a Cartoon Particle Effects Pack that promises to make your HTML5 games pop!
Kiwi.js founder, Dan Milward, says that while the ‘indies’ are a well catered for community, his company has identified a need for professional services that provide a higher level of customer support to the industry as a whole. “What we want to see is the HTML5 space taken more seriously and used to create serious games. Our pro add-ons, customer support model and IP partners will all go towards helping make this happen.”
