Richard Harris Richard Harris in Programming Saturday, July 27, 2013

Want to get started using three.js but don't know where to go? A new tutorial over at buildnewgames.com will get you started by showing you how to create a 3D game using three.js and WebGL. After you get your machine setup to build programs on the three.js platform, the tutorial will take you through building a pong game clone (in 3D), with plenty of copy and paste code to use, and images to reference.

  • The Keyboard.js helper library I used for this project, created by Arthur Schreiber at No Karma. Download it from my GitHub repository
  • A basic understanding of what Three.js does. Read this super simple, super quick tutorial by Paul Lewis. It’s basically a short-hand version of this article.
