Goo Technologies Launches Goo Create

HTML5 graphics leader unveils first professional platform for high-end web graphics

STOCKHOLM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Goo Technologies, the leader in HTML5 high-end graphics for games and interactive visualizations on the web and the company behind the Goo Engine®, today announced the launch of Goo Create®, the first professional platform for high-end web graphics.

“This new platform expands the development of professional interactive 3D web graphics to artists and creative people, whether they can code or not – a truly disruptive force not seen since the industry first began shifting from Flash to HTML5”

Goo Create enables artists and web developers to create rich, interactive web graphics with unprecedented smoothness and sophistication. For the first time, professional, high-end 3D visualizations can be created and published online using HTML5, without any downloads or plug-ins, accessible for any device supporting WebGL in HTML5. Goo Create makes this possible in fully cloud-based software available through a browser, where groundbreaking web graphics can be crafted without the use of a single line of code. Goo Create even offers a revolutionary visual programming system for creating games and apps logic without coding. “This new platform expands the development of professional interactive 3D web graphics to artists and creative people, whether they can code or not – a truly disruptive force not seen since the industry first began shifting from Flash to HTML5,” said Marcus Krüger, Founder & Executive Chairman of Goo Technologies. “Goo Create is built on and for WebGL-powered HTML5, allowing us to accelerate that transition and empower millions of creative people to build beautiful games and app content for the web, propelling forward a new ecosystem around HTML5 content. We’re laying the foundation for the future, more vibrant web, and we can’t wait to see what our community builds with it.” Goo is already behind some of the most exciting HTML5 applications this year. Goo recently teamed up with Mozilla to create a groundbreaking interactive graphics and music application showcasing the capabilities of the latest Firefox browser. The demo, “Songs of Diridum,” features in-game controls for audio – recorded by a professional jazz band – as well as a 3D environment rendered by the Goo Engine. The 3D online gambling site, Casinofloor.com, enables users to visit different virtual game rooms and tables to play one of more than 850 games without downloading or installing any software. Powered by Goo Engine, the entire experience plays instantly in the browser. Developers interested in Goo Create can sign up for the open beta at: www.gootechnologies.com. To accommodate demand, Goo will expand enrollment throughout November. The Goo Create launch tour started in San Francisco at HTML5 Dev Conf on October 23, 2013, and will continue across Europe through mid-November.
