Adobe Flash'll be killed in 2020. Does it affect us?

So yeah, Adobe has announced it's sunsetting our good pal Flash.

I was thinking... what'll happen to all the older cartoons and games that run it here on the site, once this takes effect? Can they be converted to html5?

Well, the article says that they'll be phasing it out overtime, so hopefully there will be some kind of substitute. I'm sure combined with the minds at Google, Apple, and the others, they'll find some way not to leave us hanging.

Or I'm wrong, and goodbye childhood flash games.

probabbly no, in my opinion they will just more focus at animate CC. As long it can open previously flashes files it's good for us
