What Role Do AR and VR Play in the Mobile Gaming Industry?

It's good, to begin with, a clearer picture of the size and scope of the global games market so as to better understand the growth potential of augmented reality and virtual reality. However, in this article, we will discuss the future of virtual reality gaming.

VR and AR in their current state

By the end of 2021, the global games market is expected to reach $180.1 billion. Currently, console games alone generate $49.2 billion annually. The figures were compiled by industry-tracking website Statista from its extensive quarterly report on international games market revenues.

Video games are ripe for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) applications because they offer huge opportunities to capture brand awareness and consumer loyalty. An AR game development company can help you to grow faster. 

Virtual reality and augmented reality are attracting companies that want to deliver new and immersive experiences. But what exactly are these technologies? Can they revolutionize the gaming industry? Read on to learn more.

An overview of VR

The concept of virtual reality (VR) refers to the experience of appearing to be physically present in a non-physical world. An example of virtual reality would be a 3D environment or any other setting that is simulated on a computer. A VR game development company helps you to be at the top. 

What are the differences between VR and augmented reality?

 

Virtual reality and augmented reality are entirely different technologies, despite having names that sound similar. In both cases, people can experience things that they otherwise would not get to. If you plan to use either or both of them in your work, you should be aware of some key differences between them.

As important as it is to understand is that VR completely replaces or hides your real world with an artificial environment composed of highly realistic details. The AR game development company helps you to boos the performance. 

We'll dive right in and learn what both of them have to offer, so let's see what they've got to offer.

VR's unique advantages for gaming

Video games are being revolutionized by virtual reality. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for them. Let's take a look at some of the other advantages of VR gaming.

  • Virtual reality allows players to maintain their physical activity while still having fun with traditional games. Mobile game development is the leading field for developers. 
  • Young people are increasingly interested in online gaming, and VR gaming allows them to attend gaming parties with friends. 
  • Now it's time to see how well gaming and augmented reality work together. You can take help of a VR game development company

Gaming benefits from augmented reality.

A gaming experience that uses augmented reality can be greatly enhanced.

  • Players can interact differently with augmented reality. You can choose the strategy that minimizes the risk for any given set of options.
  • Moreover, AR offers real-time variety and change to games. Having characters on the screen. The future of virtual reality gaming is very bright and you can easily get the required benefits. 
  • Playing in a multi-dimensional space is possible with AR. Normally, in the real world, we can move backwards, forwards, up, down, and side-to-side, whereas this is not normally possible in a game.

The types of games that use AR/VR

Most people who own a PC or laptop won't be significant VR gamers, but hundreds of thousands of VR games have already been released. The future of virtual reality gaming can help you to get the thing you want. To begin, let's take a look at some VR devices, followed by an exploration of what types of AR and VR games there are.

Play VR games on a variety of devices

Generally, VR games can be divided into three categories. Players can play open-world ("open world") games. 

Virtual reality games for PC

Hardware makers began adding virtual reality to laptops and computers as virtual reality became popular in gaming. The AR game development company helps you to get the desired results. 

Virtual reality games for mobile

They are designed for Google Cardboard or similar headsets, which require only a processor and enough memory.

Playing VR games on a console

Players who already own a console should be able to enjoy these. There are some limitations on what VR games on consoles can do since they use headsets. 

Games that involve shooting

Virtual reality games feature a lot of gun shooting. These games are all interesting because of the technology used and the immersive experience they provide. You can use mobile game development to reach the new heights of success. 

Games involving racing

Due to head-mounted displays, racing games are now more realistic than ever, making it seem as if you're actually playing them. The AR game development company helps to improve the performance. 

Games of horror

As Horror games are some of the most popular games on Xbox or PlayStation. They are always attractive to new players due to their graphics and frightening experiences. 

However, it is necessary to work. Several good horror games are sure to emerge within the next few years, and VR will make them significantly better than games with flat graphics.

Types of AR games

Mobile game development helps the company to fulfill their financial goals. Let's now look at the different types of augmented reality games and what makes them unique.

Strategy games played in real-time

The perfect world is well simulated in real-time strategy games. A small number of units is controlled by each player, and each player's actions are determined by their immediate situation, which can change quickly.

Simulators of virtual characters

A virtual character can also be created using the technology that enables AR games. The game features virtual characters that are part of your environment, interacting with you. This makes the experience feel more realistic.

Which VR/AR games are the most popular?

VR finally gained mainstream acceptance in mainstream gaming in 2021. As a result of numerous experiences. The AR game development company boosts your sales.

A Way Out

A Way Out is a clever multiplayer co-op game where you play a criminal trying to rescue your partner from prison. It is intelligent and incredibly tense. Yet there’s more to the game than your partner’s prisoner escape: it even turns you into weapons in the fight against the guards.

Doom Eternal

A faithful remake of the classic shooter, Doom Eternal is the fourth game in the series. There are many levels and the graphics are amazing. 

Take a look at this AR mobile app for the graphic novel Treadwater for a more immersive gaming experience.

The future of VR/AR gaming

With the market likely to reach $571 billion by 2025, VR/AR gaming is in high demand. Its share price has grown between 10 and 20 percent per year as a result of investing in the technology. More and more tech giants are experimenting with the technology now that they recognize its potential.

These are the ways in which they have revolutionized the gaming industry:

Bringing 3D back to life

3D movies have become a global phenomenon. With augmented reality and virtual reality, the immersive nature of 3D content is even more appealing to consumers. Gaming offers gamers extraordinary experiences when this concept is applied. A VR game development company can give you a great support to enhance your performance. 

Experiencing captive life

A User experience that is captive does not allow them to distinguish between the virtual and real worlds. Game applications nowadays rely heavily on this for their success. Games are emulated in virtual reality by showing real environments.

Using real-time interactions

Real-time interaction with objects is possible with Augmented Reality. AR Games interact with augmented reality by displaying real-time augmentations on the screen of the player. The VR game development company helps you to get good results. 
 

Conclusion

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality have made a thriving impact not only on gaming. It can be safe to say we are in for some brilliant inventions and evolutions with these technologies with the advent of time. To get a detailed explanation about how our AR/VR App Development Services will benefit you, you can book a free consultancy with our experts.

Simple hello world using melonJS 9.x or higher

Documentation :

For your first time using melonJS, follow these tutorials :

You may find it useful to skim the overview found at the wiki Details & Usage

When starting your own projects, checkout our es6 boilerplate

Demos

A few demos of melonJS capabilities :

More examples are available here

Download melonJS

The latest builds with corresponding release note are available for direct download here.

Since version 10.0.0 melonJS provides different build options :

builddescription
melonjs.module.jsthe ES6 Module (ESM) Bundle
melonjs.module.d.tstypescript declaration file for the ES6 Module (ESM) Bundle
melonjs.jsa ES5 UMD Bundle (directly transpiled from the ES6 version)
melonjs.min.jsa minified version of the ES5 UMD bundle

Alternatively, the latest version of melonJS can be installed through NPM :

$ npm install melonjs

If you need to import the ES6 module of melonjs (e.g. for Webpack):

$ import * as me from 'melonjs/dist/melonjs.module.js';

Or can simply be added to your html, using jsDeliver content delivery network (CDN) :

<!-- load the ES6 module bundle of melonJS v10.0 -->
<script src="https://esm.run/melonjs@10.0"></script>
<!-- omit the version completely to get the latest one -->
<!-- you should NOT use this in production -->
<script src="https://esm.run/melonjs"></script>

Note: starting from the 10.0.0 version, the debug plugin is no longer provided as part of the melonJS library release, and has been moved to the official boilerplate

Building melonJS

For most users, all you probably want is to use melonJS, and all you need then is just to download the latest built release to get started. The only time you should need to build melonJS is if you want to contribute to the project and start developing on it.

To build your own version of melonJS you will need to install :

  • The Node.js JavaScript runtime and the NPM package manager

Once Node.js and NPM have been installed, you need to install build dependencies, by executing the following in the folder where you cloned the repository :

$ [sudo] npm install

Then build the melonJS source by running:

$ npm run build

The generated library will be available under the build directory :

  • melonjs.js : plain ES5 UMD bundle
  • melonjs.min.js : minified ES5 UMD bundle
  • melonjs.module.js : plain ES6 module

To run the melonJS test suite simply use the following:

$ npm run test

This will run the jasmine spec tests with the output displayed on the shell. Do note that the latest Chrome version is required, as the test unit will run the Browser in a headless mode (in case of failed tests, upgrade your browser).

Building the documentation

Similarly, you can build your own copy of the docs locally by running :

$ npm run doc

The generated documentation will be available in the docs directory

WIP Builds

melonJS uses Travis-CI for automated testing and build uploads. The latest build artifacts can be downloaded from the melonjs-builds bucket.

Questions, need help ?

If you need technical support, you can contact us through the following channels :

  • Forums: with melonJS 2 we moved to a new discourse forum, but we can still also find the previous one here
  • Chat: come and chat with us on discord, or gitter
  • we tried to keep our wikipage up-to-date with useful links, tutorials, and anything related melonJS.

Phaser - HTML5 Game Framework

Phaser is a fast, free, and fun open source HTML5 game framework that offers WebGL and Canvas rendering across desktop and mobile web browsers. Games can be compiled to iOS, Android and native apps by using 3rd party tools. You can use JavaScript or TypeScript for development.

Along with the fantastic open source community, Phaser is actively developed and maintained by Photon Storm. As a result of rapid support, and a developer friendly API, Phaser is currently one of the most starred game frameworks on GitHub.

Thousands of developers from indie and multi-national digital agencies, and universities worldwide use Phaser. Take a look at their incredible games.

After 13 beta releases, over 200 resolved issues, thousands of lines of new code and the culmination of over 6 months incredibly hard work, Phaser 3.50 was finally released in December 2020 and we're continuing with updates into 2021 with this new 3.55 release. 3.55 focuses mostly on fixing issues, but also addresses a performance issue with mixing Sprites and Graphics objects together.

It's not hyperbole or exaggeration when I say that Phaser 3.50 is the single biggest point release ever in the history of Phaser. There are quite literally hundreds of new features to explore, updates to key areas and of course bug fixes. I did actually try counting all the changes, but gave up after I'd reached 900 of them! Thankfully, they are, as always, meticulously detailed in the Change Log. The changes for 3.50 actually grew so large that I had to split them out from the main Change Log and put them into their own file.

However, don't let this overwhelm you. A massive number of the changes are purely internal and while there are absolutely some API breaking changes in this release (hence the large version number jump), we've kept them as sensible as possible. We already know of lots of devs who have upgraded with minimal, or no, changes to their actual game code. We cannot guarantee that for everyone, of course, but depending on how complex your game is, the chances are good.

There is plenty to be excited about in this version. It pulls together most of the R&D that took place earlier this year for Phaser 4 and delivers it to you in version 3. New features include full support for post-processing effects via the new Post FX Pipeline, multi-texture support for faster WebGL rendering, a brand new Layer Game Object for the ability to group and post process objects without impacting their transforms, new event hooks, a massive overhaul of the Animation system, funky looking new Point Lights, a new Pipeline Manager, new Camera effects, the latest version of the Spine Plugin, an extremely powerful new Mesh Game Object, a brand new Render Texture, huge improvements to Bitmap Text, isometric and hexagonal Tilemap support, a new Pushable Arcade Physics Body type, new Geometry Intersection tests, Light 2D Updates and lots, lots, lots more!

As usual, I'd like to send my thanks to the Phaser community for their help in both reporting issues and submitting pull requests to fix them. So, please do spend some time digging through the Change Log. I assure you, it's worth while :)

I'd like to send a massive thank-you to everyone who supports Phaser on Patreon, GitHub Sponsors and our corporate backers. Your continued funding allows me to keep working on Phaser full-time and this monster of a new release is the very real result of that. If you've ever considered becoming a backer, now is the perfect time!

If you'd like to stay abreast of developments then I'm now publishing them to the Phaser Patreon. Here you can find the latest development reports including the concepts behind Phaser 4.

You can also follow Phaser on Twitter and chat with fellow Phaser devs in our Discord.

Phaser 3 wouldn't have been possible without the fantastic support of the community and Patreon. Thank you to everyone who supports our work, who shares our belief in the future of HTML5 gaming, and Phaser's role in that.

Happy coding everyone!

Cheers,

Rich - @photonstorm

Because Phaser is an open source project, we cannot charge for it in the same way as traditional retail software. What's more, we don't ever want to. After all, it's built on, and was born from, open web standards. It's part of our manifesto that the core framework will always be free, even if you use it commercially, as many of you do.

You may not realize it, but because of this, we rely 100% on community backing to fund development.

Those funds allow Phaser to improve, and when it improves, everyone involved benefits. Your support helps secure a constant cycle of updates, fixes, new features and planning for the future.

There are other benefits to backing Phaser, too:

Backers Perks

We use Patreon to manage the backing and you can support Phaser from $1 per month. The amount you pledge is entirely up to you and can be changed as often as you like. Patreon renews monthly, just like Netflix. You can, of course, cancel at any point. Tears will be shed on this end, but that's not your concern.

You can also support us by using crypto currencies. The Phaser wallet addresses are:

  • Ethereum: 0x10412d654b44570950631aA0C3E3f3aFcAEfAB4C
  • Bitcoin: 3MjS5iNH8yUBfYW2emxBk7rRUkP6ncrkXC

Extra special thanks to the following companies whose support makes Phaser possible:

Phaser 3 is available via GitHub, npm and CDNs:

NPM

Install via npm:

npm install phaser

CDN

Phaser is on jsDelivr which is a "super-fast CDN for developers". Include the following in your html:

<script src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/phaser@3.55.2/dist/phaser.js"></script>

or the minified version:

<script src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/phaser@3.55.2/dist/phaser.min.js"></script>

API Documentation

Go to https://newdocs.phaser.io/ to read the docs online using our brand new interface. Use the links to navigate the namespaces, classes and Game Objects lists and also use the new search box.

The documentation for Phaser 3 is an on-going project. Please help us by contributing improved docs and examples.

TypeScript Definitions

The TypeScript definitions can be found inside the types folder. They are also referenced in the types entry in package.json.

Depending on your project, you may need to add the following to your tsconfig.json file:

"typeRoots": [
    "./node_modules/phaser/types"
],
"types": [
    "Phaser"
]

We recently published a new Phaser 3 TypeScript Project Template, which you can use to get started with if you like.

The TS defs are automatically generated from the JSDoc comments found in the Phaser source code. If you wish to help refine them then you must edit the Phaser JSDoc blocks directly, not the defs file. You can find more details about the parser we built in the scripts/tsgen folder.

Webpack

We use Webpack to build Phaser and we take advantage of its conditional build flag feature to handle renderer swapping. If you wish to use Webpack with Phaser then please use our Phaser 3 Project Template as it's already set-up to handle the build conditions Phaser needs. Recent changes to our build steps mean you should now be able to use any other packager, like Parcel, without any config changes.

Tutorials and guides on Phaser 3 development are being published every week.

We've 3 tutorials related specifically to creating Facebook Instant Games with Phaser:

Source Code Examples

During our development of Phaser 3, we created hundreds of examples with the full source code and assets ready available. These examples are now fully integrated into the Phaser website. You can also browse them on Phaser 3 Labs via a more advanced interface, or clone the examples repo. We are constantly adding to and refining these examples.

Huge list of Phaser 3 Plugins

Super community member RexRainbow has been publishing Phaser 3 content for years, building up an impressive catalogue in that time. You'll find loads of plugins, from UI controls such as text input boxes, to Firebase support, Finite State Machines and lots more. As well as the plugins there is also a comprehensive set of 'Notes' about Phaser 3, going into great detail about how the various systems work. It's an invaluable resource and well worth checking out at https://rexrainbow.github.io

Create Your First Phaser 3 Example

Create an index.html page locally and paste the following code into it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
    <script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/phaser@3.55.2/dist/phaser-arcade-physics.min.js"></script> 
</head>
<body>

    <script></script>

</body>
</html>

This is a standard empty webpage. You'll notice there's a script tag that is pulling in a build of Phaser 3, but otherwise this webpage doesn't do anything yet. Now let's set-up the game config. Paste the following between the <script></script> tags:

var config = {
    type: Phaser.AUTO,
    width: 800,
    height: 600,
    physics: {
        default: 'arcade',
        arcade: {
            gravity: { y: 200 }
        }
    },
    scene: {
        preload: preload,
        create: create
    }
};

config is a pretty standard Phaser 3 Game Configuration object. We tell config to use the WebGL renderer if it can, set the canvas to a size of 800x600 pixels, enable Arcade Physics, and finally call the preload and create functions. preload and create have not been implemented yet, so if you run this JavaScript code, you will have an error. Add the following after config:

var game = new Phaser.Game(config);

function preload ()
{
    this.load.setBaseURL('https://labs.phaser.io');

    this.load.image('sky', 'assets/skies/space3.png');
    this.load.image('logo', 'assets/sprites/phaser3-logo.png');
    this.load.image('red', 'assets/particles/red.png');
}

function create ()
{
}

game is a Phaser Game instance that uses our configuration object config. We also add function definitions for preload and create. The preload function helps you easily load assets into your game. In preload, we set the Base URL to be the Phaser server and load 3 PNG files.

The create function is empty, so it's time to fill it in:

function create ()
{
    this.add.image(400, 300, 'sky');

    var particles = this.add.particles('red');

    var emitter = particles.createEmitter({
        speed: 100,
        scale: { start: 1, end: 0 },
        blendMode: 'ADD'
    });

    var logo = this.physics.add.image(400, 100, 'logo');

    logo.setVelocity(100, 200);
    logo.setBounce(1, 1);
    logo.setCollideWorldBounds(true);

    emitter.startFollow(logo);
}

Here we add a sky image into the game and create a Particle Emitter. The scale value means that the particles will initially be large and will shrink to nothing as their lifespan progresses.

After creating the emitter, we add a logo image called logo. Since logo is a Physics Image, logo is given a physics body by default. We set some properties for logo: velocity, bounce (or restitution), and collision with the world bounds. These properties will make our logo bounce around the screen. Finally, we tell the particle emitter to follow the logo - so as the logo moves, the particles will flow from it.

Run it in your browser and you'll see the following:

Phaser 3 Demo

(Got an error? Here's the full code)

This is a tiny example, and there are hundreds more for you to explore, but hopefully it shows how expressive and quick Phaser is to use. With just a few easily readable lines of code, we've got something pretty impressive up on screen!

Ourcade

Ourcade have published two great Phaser 3 books. They'll take you from getting set-up, through to finishing your first game using modern JavaScript or TypeScript and they're both completely free! They also publish a huge range of quality tutorials and videos, so be sure to check out their site every week.

HTML5 Cross Platform Game Development with Phaser 3

Learn the secrets of HTML5 game development with Phaser 3.50 while building a cross platform endless runner game. Designed both for beginners and skilled programmers, the course guides you from an empty folder introducing the bare bones of JavaScript to advanced Phaser 3 features. Find out more details about HTML5 Cross Platform Game Development with Phaser.

Building Phaser

There are both plain and minified compiled versions of Phaser in the dist folder of the repository. The plain version is for use during development, and the minified version is for production use. You can and should also create your own builds.

Custom Builds

Phaser 3 is built using Webpack and we take advantage of the Webpack definePlugin feature to allow for conditional building of the Canvas and WebGL renderers and extra plugins. You can custom the build process to only include the features you require. Doing so can cut the main build file size down to just 70KB.

Read our comprehensive guide on creating Custom Builds of Phaser 3 for full details.

Building from Source

If you wish to build Phaser 3 from source, ensure you have the required packages by cloning the repository and then running npm install on your source directory.

You can then run webpack to create a development build in the build folder which includes source maps for local testing. You can also npm run dist to create a minified packaged build in the dist folder. For a list of all commands available use npm run help.
