I am not a regular here, but I recently released a web game that I have spent over a year developing, and there might be some interest around here. The client and server are both built in Javascript (a la Node.js), the graphics are done using Raphael (cross-browser vector graphics), and communication is done with Socket.io (web sockets with browser-specific fallbacks).

The game is called Catastrophe X and it is a map-based space strategy game. It's played in your web browser against other online players, and it's totally free. There aren't many people online to play against in these early days, but I try tomake myself available as much as possible.

Battles in Catastrophe X consist of two or more players, each starting with a detachment of spacecraft, or craft. As the battle progresses, players deploy their craft onto the map to harvest resources, create more craft, and their attackopponents. Your goal as a player is to design detachments of craftthat work well together, and then command them successfully in battle.

The game is still under constant development, and there is still a lot of work to do. I'd love to hear any comments or suggestions over at the development blog.
