FUTURA SPACE (2.0) is playable on both PC and Mac browsers (in order of preference; Edge, Opera, Firefox and Chrome). Not mobile or Ipads.


If you are using a home-office setup or a domestic laptop, make sure you are not running heavy programs such as image or video editors and please reduce the number of open windows and tabs. If you are using a PC gaming hardware this will not be necessary.

Make sure you have enabled WebGL on your browser and this is up to date. Also, having a good graphics card will likely improve WebGL performance on your computer. To know if your browser runs WebGL check out the above video example running as a live demo. Another great demo to check out is Hello Racer.


14. How do I enable WebGL on my browser? Follow the visual steps: here

If you have a display driver older than 2010 you may need to update your display drivers. Please also check to ensure you are not using any extension that may be disabling WebGL.

  • Opera - Select Opera → Preferences... or go to about:config to open the browser settings. Expand the Advanced options and select Browser. Go to the System section and ensure that Use hardware acceleration when available is enabled.

  • Chrome - Navigate to chrome://settings/system and check to ensure that Use hardware acceleration when available is enabled. If hardware acceleration is currently enabled, inspect the status of WebGL under the Graphics Feature Status section at chrome://gpu/.

  • Edge - Select Microsoft Edge → Preferences... or go to edge://settings/system to open the browser settings. Check to ensure User hardware acceleration when available is enabled in the System settings. If hardware acceleration is currently enabled, inspect the status of WebGL under the Graphics Feature Status section at edge://gpu/.

  • Firefox - Go to about:config and search for webgl.disabled in the search bar to ensure its value is false. If the value for webgl.disabled is false, next you should inspect the status of WebGL at about:support.
