Developer David Perry has been working on interesting video game projects since he contributed to 1982's Tim Hartnell's Giant Book of Spectrum Games. He created Earthworm Jim, MDK, Messiah , Wild 9 and Enter the Matrix among many others, and now works with Acclaim. Perry's latest endeavor may surprise you. At his talk at DICE today, Perry revealed the existence of The Fan Hub, which works like game-downloading service Steam, except with embeddable Flash games.
The Fan Hub is designed to provide a central site where Flash games live. There are many advantages to the set-up, including the ability to update or patch everyone's game at once, the creation of world-wide high score lists, an achievements system, even a complete Microtransaction model. Really, the skies the limit.
