Welcome to the arcade.ly blog

Welcome to the arcade.ly blog, where we’ll be talking about games, game dev, and web performance.

All our games are built with HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. That’s right: no Flash. Which means they work on mobile and tablet, as well as desktop and laptop.

So far we only have a couple of games:

We hope you enjoy playing them!

For anyone who’s interested, our behind the scenes tech stack is express.js and node.js running on Bitnami, currently in Amazon Web Services’ with Cloudflare as CDN. The blog is generated by Hexo using the excellent alpha-dust theme from Jonathan Klughertz.

We recommend you subscribe to our Atom feed for posts and updates on new game releases.
