So, we’ve been discussing the (frankly, kind of regrettable) death of Flash for a good while. But with every dying technology comes some weirdo trying to make it go again. Just ask us.
So let’s talk about Ruffle. This is one of the latest attempts to rebuild Flash. And by that I mean, this is a Rust-based emulator of Flash. Mozilla tried their hand at it before with Shumway but well, that died. This is another go at it.
It’s still not quite at “drop-in replacement” stage yet and its ActionScript support isn’t all there yet, but hey, there’s a demo page where you can play an old take on Metal Slug if you want!
