Technologies like WebGL and TypeScript makes it possible, to develop 3D accelerated applications such as games, which will run in our browsers.

In this thesis I will investigate how a component based 3D game engine can be implemented in WebGL and TypeScript.

First I will start off by taking a look at the current web platforms available today, then the focus will shift to the characteristics of JavaScript by examining how to write high performance code with it.

I will describe the game object architectures in detail then the systems I have implemented during creating my WebGL engine. These systems include rendering, networking and physics simulation. I have also created a basic editor for the above mentioned engine.

Finally I will demonstrate the basic usage of the engine by presenting simple examples I have created.

As WebGL will be supported by all browsers in the near future, I expect the platform will get more attractive to developers and more and more small to medium sized 3D applications, games will become available on it.
