HTML5 multiplayer games distribution & promotion

HTML5 multiplayer games distribution & promotion

Recently, I started a discussion about multiplayer HTML5 games. As you have seen, such games are currently working well on both desktop and mobile devices simultaneously. This time, I will focus on methods which can help you to distribute such games. There are a couple ways, and if your game is good enough, you may be able to depend on only your resources and ideas. But if you didn’t manage to gain enough resources for marketing, promotion or game production you may always use different ways to show your product to the gamers.

The Holidays are over – what are our plans now?

Summer is a period when everything stops or slows down for a while. The industry takes a break. Developers and publishers pack their bags, leave their offices and go for holiday.

Nevertheless, there have already been successful attempts at creating products that allow gamers to have fun on various operating systems and devices simultaneously. Of course these games still can’t have complicated animations and other features which cause worse performance, but they prove that it is possible, more possible than a couple years ago. There are also bigger (standalone) multiplayer games for hardcore gamers which are also...

Looking at HTML5 and Flash – finding alternative solutions for mobile entertainment

Looking at HTML5 and Flash – finding alternative solutions for mobile entertainment

This time I won’t be trying to explain why one technology is better than the other. It won’t be a “Flash vs. HTML5″ argument or any research proving superiority of any of the technologies. Additionally, I won’t be comparing native games with web mobile games, because these are two separate approaches to game development, and in my opinion this comparison is pointless.
