Command and Conquer, the popular real-time strategy game from the 1990s, is available as an HTML5 in-browser game.
It’s not an official release from Electronic Arts, it’s actually a crazy bout of coding from Aditya Ravi Shankar–in a bid to improve his coding chops he decided that he would, in a 30 day crash course, attempt to code the original Command and Conquer game as an HTML5 game. It’s not complete yet (not all the units are available) but it’s still an amazing little port that is growing release-by-release.
