The Death of Flash and Rewriting Old Code

Adobe recently confirmed the suspicion held by many in the games industry that Flash is a dying platform. The official announcement that Flash will be discontinued in 2020 is threatening the infrastructure for many games and mobile apps, putting developers in a position to either abandon or overhaul their proprietary code built meticulously over the course of years. 

 The question was whether to start over by building a new platform from the ground up, or find a solution to transfer current codebase to a new platform. Finding the right solution was not going to be easy.

 Option #1: Unity

 Option #2: HTML5

 Option #3: Xamarin

 Option #4: Haxe

After selecting Haxe, the team decided to parcel the transition into four parts. With any major undertaking, challenges are bound to arise.
