Looking to pick a few brains…
I’d like to dip my beak into some browser game development and being a predominantly .NET developer I’m leaning towards Silverlight. However, I’d like to try something a bit more open sourced and to get some experience with a different technology.
I know there’s the Flax lads working on their HTML5 (which probably wouldn’t hurt me to get familiar with) engine but I was curious if anyone else is doing much in the way of browser games and if so what are you using?

Another HTML 5 engine:
The guy building this impactjs engine sure looks to know what he is at.

Cool, I didn’t realise it was for web dev too – I’ve read a lot about it in relation to iPhone development.

No problem. I think they are also working on an Android version, but yeah Unity makes it pretty easy to deploy your game to different platforms :)

I remember hearing that being mentioned in one of the more recent Indie Game Development podcasts. I think the guy being interviewed even mentioned they might do a Windows Phone version too – they’d have a finger in every pie at that point.

Check out flax.ie. I am working on a HTML5 Game Engine and blogging about the development there.
EDIT just read your post again, I see you already know ha.

another engine for deployment of 3D to the web is neoaxis engine which is about to go 1.0. It has nice editors for both maps and resources, very .net oriented, and has an indie and free license. It’s made by Ivan, in Russia!

Also Shiva ( http://www.stonetrip.com ), does web / iPhone / Android / StandAlone. We’ve licenced Pro versions of both Shiva and Unity here, and will hopefully be allocating resources soon to making some games with them ( we just have internal demos at the mo ).
