Often, when I wear my Wolfire T-shirt people compliment me on my nice FireFox shirt, exclaiming their love for the browser. I thought I would confuse people even further by making Wolfire's very own web browser! I teamed up with AJS, the creator of Awesomium, to bring you guys Wolfire WebKitten:
What is WebKitten?
The intention of WebKitten is to let people access certain webpages inside of Overgrowth. Without further ado, here is a screenshot of me writing this post from within the game:
WebKitten is useful for a few reasons. Right now, our number one use case is to embed the Overgrowth Alpha FAQ (which is simply a forum post) inside of the game. However, there are a lot of possibilities. Here's a few off the top of my head.
- Let people view and edit an Overgrowth wiki from within the game (it could even update itself based on your location in the game).
- Live customer service without leaving OG.
- Chat in our IRC channel from within the game.
- Let people purchase the game from within the demo.
- Easy access to our forums, etc.
That's about all I can think of for now. What uses for WebKitten can you guys think of?
