Javascript is really starting to surprise me as a useful language. The latest project that has interested me isThe Render Engine, which is a Javascript based game engine.

It is an opensource endeavour and works in Firefox, Opera, Chrome and Safari. Unsurprisingly, I did not see Internet Explorer in the list.

There are a few demos on the site with an Asteroids clone and a few more.

One surprising feature is that it seems capable of creating games which work with the Nintendo Wii.
