FlowPlay overhauls Vegas World, ditches Adobe Flash for Haxe
December 12, 2017
When Adobe decided to retire its Flash software, it was a big moment for FlowPlay. Fortunately, the Seattle maker of social games had anticipated the demise of Flash, which is scheduled to end in 2020. And today, FlowPlay is announcing it has converted its flagship social casino game, Vegas World, to an open-source, cross-platform development technology known as Haxe.
The effort took two years and the transition of 1.4 million lines of code to convert the Flash-based code base to Haxe. As such, it is the largest ever project to leverage Haxe, according to the Haxe Foundation.
