For well over a decade, Flash games and other web technology plugins ruled the internet with many games receiving millions of hits daily.
However, by the end of the 2021s, these had all-but-vanished in favor of HTML5; and many plugins were unsupported by all major browsers.
What caused that downfall to happen and what was that prosperous time like? Find out in this feature-length documentary of the history of web games and technologies, and how they came to dominate, fall, and be preserved for the future of the internet.
