Article: Why I keep using Adobe Flash?

@alesys_net I’m in the same pos. Been learning Unity, Haxe, but when it comes time for me to make the 2D RPG game I want, AIR works best.

Gestures.IO - join Beta!

EASILY. Gestures.IO helps developers create and deploy gesture touchless animation only with standardized script languages: Javascript and Actionscript.

SUSTAINABLY. The same app functions whatever the connected sensor is. Gestures.IO allows you to create long-term gesture-app, regardless of sensor diversity and/or SDK evolution.

CREATE GESTURAL INTERACTION. Let your public feels your creations by interacting with their hands and body. Each user is no longer a spectator but a fully engaged actor. Your message is sublimated.

Browser Games that use Android Devices with Adobe AIR as Wireless Game Controllers

With the latest update of Adobe AIR app, you will be able to develop Flash based browser games that can use Android devices as motion sensing game controllers. On this page, I plan to maintain a list of browser games that enable this functionality.

Kickstarter project:
Game Services AIR Native Extension

We are aware that there’s a lot of interest in creating an AIR native extension (ANE) to handle cross platform game services (as our suggestion site indicates here). While we have made a start on this extension we just don’t have the time to dedicate to developing this extension. So we are asking you to help us. This project will allow us to dedicate the resources necessary to create an well polished AIR native extension to access the Apple Game Center and Google Play Game Services.
