[WIP] GAMECONTAINER: Play games in a Windows Form.

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

GAMECONTAINER

What the heck is this?
GameContainer is a lightweight C# application that lets you run your HTML games made in Construct (2) in a Windows Form. The only requirement is that you must upload the game to a webserver, but you can also debug your games with it.

How does it work?
GameContainer uses Awesomium.NET, a fork of Chromium. Awesomium allows us to display our HTML game in an application. If your not a very experienced web developer this may sound like a weird foreign language, but... The only thing you need to know is that it works alright. :p

Give me screenshots. PROVE ME THAT IT WORKS!
Well here ya go:

Downloads

I looked it up years ago when we had an Awesomium export option already.
It wasn't free then either.
