    Flash seems especially dead with Google.

    With Google settings...you can either block Flash completely...or you have to go through a
    tedious allow / add process for every new Flash site you visit.

    I've been visiting dozens of educational sites...and unfortunately...a lot of them still have a lot
    of content that requires Flash.

    I hope to find more HTML5 educational programs / games real soon.

    Lucky you. All the online educational content from my university still uses Java applets. You want to talk about a tedious allow/add process every time you see one; try enabling one of those.

    Seems like your studio is going to be super busy for a long while...there is a ton of FLASH stuff out there!
    Is it hard to convert something in FLASH to HTML5...or does the entire game have to be reprogrammed from the ground up?

    @RollyBug thanks for that link.

    Holy cow, I didn't know that! It's kind of sad really. I grew up on flash. HTML5 is miles better though so it's for the best.

    We typically remake them from the ground up especially if we're adding mobile support. In any case, most Flash games are pretty dated by today's standards so they benefit from a fresh coat of paint.

    I remember we used to play the 4player putt-putt golf in class in middle school on this site, early 2000s.
