Defeated BrowserQuest


Just spent a fun hour playing Mozilla's new HTML 5 retro MMO game, BrowserQuest (more info).  They are using node.js to do web sockets, which allow them to communicate bi-directionally between the browser and the server.  Since it's just HTML5 and Javascript, you should be able to play it on your mobile phone, too.

After playing for about 30 minutes, my browser (Chrome) crashed and I had to restart my computer to get my mouse pointer back.  I was relieved that BrowserQuest also uses HTML 5's local storage, so I was able to pick up the game right where I left off!  

And, of course I had to play until I won (that's me below after defeating the final boss)!
