    Pros: 

    Free

    Cons: 

    Buggy, slow connection, need a gaming PC to run server

    Would love this service if it wasn't buggy and there were paid or free servers so you didn't need a gaming PC

    Adrian Carolli has used this product for one day.

Suuuper interesting. The first startup I worked at was InstantAction, building tech to enable any game to be playable in the browser. While a very different solution than this, we were approaching a similar opportunity back in 2009. This also reminds me of Gaikai and Onlive, both acquired by Sony (edited my previous typo).

@rrhoover The web as a platform has really evolved over the last 10 years. Hopefully we're able to keep pushing browsers to their limits and make a positive impact on their development. Would love to hear more about your time at InstantAction.

@rrhoover didn't Sony buy Gaikai and turned it into playstation now? Together with David Perry.

@ericdiepeveen you're right! I mixed this up. Edited!

Only for Windows PC. No server for Mac :(

@armen_mkrtchian even when games are on the Mac, most of the time they’re not even optimized for it. Macs are great but until fairly recently games weren’t even on its radar

@armen_mkrtchian While our server is currently Windows only, we do have plans for a macOS and Linux variant in our pipeline.

@kay0stheory that’s why a product like this could fix that

First of all, this looks very cool! 🙌 But... PC? I feel like it would’ve made much more sense to play console games. Don’t get me wrong, though, I love any type of game, no matter the platform. In my opinion, console games would be more fitting because they are designed to be played via controller - something you can hook up with your phone (I guess, I haven’t actually done it). On the other hand, some PC games can be played via controller, yes, but then there are games like Starcraft, World of Warcraft and whatnot where you *need* to play with keyboard and mouse, which are a bit harder to plug in a phone, I think. I’m not saying it sounds reasonable to play Starcraft on a phone, just using it as an example for how some PC games need keyboards.

great but.. " Connection log Connecting over WebRTC first. Failed to connect with WebRTC {"Error":"TargetDoesNotExist"} Attempting to connect by socket. Failed to connect with socket. Could not locate DNS entries, please run the server first time setup. "

@edwardvasquezdr You need to install the agent/server on a Windows 10 PC before you can use the web client.
