Contre Jour now on the Web

Microsoft has helped bring popular mobile game Contre Jour to the Web — the latest debut in the company’s efforts to showcase Internet Explorer 10.

Contre Jour, from the company Mokus, follows the apps Pulse and Atari Arcade in coming to modern, HTML5-compatible browsers, with the aid of the Microsoft folks, who are trying to trumpet the features of the upcoming IE10 and the ability for developers to create apps for it using HTML5.

(The problem there is, at least according to a recent Appcelerator/IDC survey, many mobile developers are disappointed with HTML5.)

Like Pulse and Atari Arcade, the online version of Contre Jour will work on any modern browser but, according to Microsoft, “really shines on IE10” because of that browser’s multi-touch capabilities (which is required to finish the games’ third chapter).

Here’s a video from Microsoft showing Contre Jour:
