Is Javascript a hard requirement?

PubNub has SDKs available in many languages, and it's mentioned in the contest page that there are SDK's available in over 50 platforms... Is using Javascript an absolute requirement for this contest?

    Hey Yosun - Thanks for your interest! Yes JavaScript is a requirement for this contest.

    And in that case, is straight-on Javascript required?

    And what about Unity Javascript... o.O

    Technically UnityScript is a separate language. This contest is really around creating a multiplayer game with JavaScript. You may use any of the following JavaScript SDKs:

    Web & Mobile
    Node.JS
    HTML5 WebWorker
    Socket.IO
    WebRTC
    Titanium Appcelerator Mobile
    PhoneGap
    Sencha
    Smart TVs
    WebOS
    ImpactJS HTML5
    Construct2
    Monkey
    Qooxdoo

    Hope that helps!

    Well, UnityScript (aka Unity Javascript) is actually ECMAscript and Javascript is actually sometimes used as a synonym, so I thought I'd ask.

    It would be nice to see a language-independent version of a PubNub contest, i.e., where we're free to use server-side implementations (LAMP, not node) - or Unity on clientside

    Thanks Yosun - we'll keep that in mind for next time!
