Google has released their new open sourced write once run anywhere gaming library, PlayN.  Well if by anywhere you mean Android, Flash, HTML5 or Java that is.  Here is the announcement video:



 

 

In a nutshell, you write your code in Java and it cross compiles to the 4 supported formats.  It’s odd that in the video they announce iOS as one of the platforms that developers need to support ( probably the biggest platform to boot! ) and yet PlayN doesn’t support iOS.  A bit of a headscratcher there!

 

Anyways, I will take a closer look into PlayN and give a review of sorts over the next couple days.
