Play Command and Conquer In Your Browser

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.

Hit up the link below to take version 0.3 for a spin–we’re currently building up an army of light tanks to show those NOD turrets who’s boss.

Command and Conquer in HTML5 [via Wired]

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.

    Also, you might want to update the link. It currently points to a temporary redirect url instead of the actual game.
