Places to publish an HTML5 game?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Nov 08, 2011 5:04 pm

I know there are flash game portals like playfish and kongregate, but are there any places where you can submit/embed an HTML5 game?

You can host a HTML5 game on dropbox, as long as you don't need any server-side scripting

Check out Summary of publishing options for Construct 2 games.

You can submit HTML5 games to sites like Kongregate, but I checked with them and they aren't quite ready to accept them yet. Hopefully they'll be taking them in the near future.

Hey Ashley, I saw your tutorial, it was very good. I should have used different wording, I meant to ask, what sites are there that we can use to promote our HTML5 games on?

Facebook and the Chrome store are options obviously, but I was wondering what other options were available.

Thanks for your responses.

HTML5games.com might also be interested, and then there's a whole slew of standard indie gaming sites you can try to get noticed on - they're not specific to HTML5 but you can still give them a go - IndieGames.com, TIGSource, PixelProspector, etc. I might add some of these to the tutorial actually.

Thanks for those sites, that's a great place to start on.

To be honest, I was actually hoping you'd be mentioning sites like this in your tutorial.

Might I suggest writing a separate tutorial for tips on how to promote your game, and including those sites in that tutorial?

Thanks again.Joshua2011-11-08 17:50:52

For marketing/promotions, there are thousands of blogs on the internet that deal with those questions.

I advise you to take a look at the blog "What games are" (A little search use the term "marketing" and you should have a fine list of articles to begin with) and learn about promotion and those aspects of game making.Kyatric2011-11-08 17:59:56

OK, I updated the article with some more links and info. I'll try and keep it updated as more options become available - HTML5 is a relatively new technology so some sites are only just beginning to support it!

This topic is a bit old, but some of these sites above are really low-end and hardly worth your time.

There are currently some major publishers looking for HTML5 content (primarily if it is designed for mobile) and will actually PAY YOU to distribute your game. If you don't care about money and just want plays, search for these publishers and offer them your game for free. Then you'll really get a lot of plays.True Valhalla2012-10-14 09:26:14
