Google I/O: GRITS: PvP Gaming with HTML5


The Electronic Arts Office of the Chief Creative Officer has tasked us with creating a game using WebGL that will redefine the expectations of browser-based gaming. WebGL is an exciting new software library that expands Javascript to generate interactive 3D graphics and "3D audio" in web browsers without cumbersome plugins.
The game we’re making is a tower offense game, based on original EA IP. The game will feature fast paced multiplayer battles, different character classes with distinct weapons and abilities that can be upgraded, and a customizable battle kit of units that the player can summon to help them win the day.


Sound Design
► 3D position- all the sounds were coded to show real time 3D surround feature.
► Sound group- Each sound effect, having a variety of sounds, is played randomly in the game making it more natural and non-repetitive.
