  • \$\begingroup\$ Let me rephrase the question! When is an external engine/framework necessary for building an html game.If I have two armies and each of the person in that army has health/attack/defense , visually pleasing environment , but not much environmental movement , hitTests , is it necessary to adopt an engine/framework? \$\endgroup\$ – Harsha Venkatram Sep 21 '12 at 12:11

  • \$\begingroup\$ I think that you should always try to find some framework that suits your needs, it can save you dozen of hours of work total. The No framework path: Better for learning how to really program games. Using Framework: for delivering a better product at the end of the project. \$\endgroup\$ – Billy Ninja Sep 21 '12 at 12:44

    \$\begingroup\$ Harsha, your question is being down-voted because it's not a good fit for the site. Even with your rephrasing in your comment. The problem is there's not correct answer. To use an engine or not is a decision you have to make, and which one to use is also up to you. See the FAQ about what types of questions to ask here. \$\endgroup\$ – MichaelHouse Sep 21 '12 at 14:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ "Please give me resources on how to make (broad category of stuff) in (common programming language)." is 1. not a question and 2. waaaaay too broad, sorry. \$\endgroup\$ – Martin Sojka Sep 21 '12 at 16:35

A quick google search lead me to the page below, where you can find a list of JS game engines. While not every engine on the list is specifically designed for RPGs, you should be able to quickly determine which engines may fit your needs.
