Whilst there has been allot expectations from HTML5 there have been few decent titles released, and fewer still using WebGL, although there are a number in development. Cimmerian Space is now on Kickstarter, they have demoed early game content and are raising money for more game features and photographic characters. So the race is on to be at the vanguard of WebGL games.
Whilst the gameplay may be similar to Star Citizen, fighting and trading your way through a 3D universe, its a much lighter engine, and it aims to run on an average laptop, following the trend for users to move away from desktops onto laptops and mobile devices. They hope that now Google has teased WebGL content on Chrome Beta for Mobile, that they can develop a touch version that will run on your tablet in the near future.
They are also trying to distinguish themselves from the mass of flash based games, by using colourful photographic characters to represent the crew of your ship. Like Firefly or Farscape, your ship will have exotic aliens, sexy space vixens, and battle hardened mercenaries that you can assign as Captain, Pilots, Gunners or Engineers. Each Crew member unlocks its own mission arc, with unique loot and content.
