Some SVG Games

I’ve been using SVG more as an offline drawing language and not much as a technology for the web. But I met a friend in a bloggers conference this weekend and he mentioned something obvious, but that I never looked for: an SVG Tetris game. Of course there are many other SVG games.

Check it out:

SVG is just the language to represent graphics and get input. Game logic is actually written in JavaScript.

Web developers are used to mix (X)HTML with JavaScript. Maybe it is time to start thinking about mixing SVG and JavaScript to see proprietary technologies as Flash or Silverlight to be less massively used. For that, better IDE tools for JS+SVG will be required and browsers and platforms must find a more standard way to render audio and video (a feature covered by Flash and SL, but not by SVG).
