Cocos2d-X is a suite of open-source, cross-platform, game-development tools used by thousands of developers all over the world. Now, MS Open Tech has just contributed JavaScript support for Cocos2d-x for Modern Windows. Using this, developers who like to program in JavaScript can now create Cocos2d games that will run on Microsoft Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 platforms.
