"This technology has reached a point where games users can jump into via a Web link are now almost indistinguishable from ones they might have had to wait to download and install," said Brendan Eich, CTO and SVP of Engineering at Mozilla. "Using Emscripten to cross-compile C and C++ into asm.js, developers can run their games at near-native speeds, so they can approach the Web as they would any other platform."
Unreal Engine 4 is designed to scale from PC and console to mobile and the Web.
