Phaser is actively developed and maintained by @photonstorm, but QICI Engine uses the specific version Phaser 2.3.0. We keep track of bug fixes and performance improvements for Phaser, so you can use the customized Phaser version that QICI Engine provides safely.
QICI Engine is made up of three parts: QICI Core, QICI Widget and QICI Editor:
- QICI Editor: A web-based editor with a Node.js server for accelerating HTML5 game development.
The QICI Core is the core of QICI Engine, the QICI Editor would not work without it, but the QICI Core can function on its own to be used to make a HTML5 Game by writing code without QICI Editor. But for complex UI, it’s really hard to build and maintain without the help of WYSIWYG visual interface, with QICI Editor even artists and designers can help to build the game’s UI.
QICI Widget provides the HTML5 UI widgets for making the GUI in QICI Editor.
