Windows 8 presents an incredible opportunity for distributing and monetizing HTML5 games, and this guide shows how you can profit from it. You’ll learn everything you need to know about porting your original web-based JavaScript game to the new "touch-first" version of Windows, as well as several options for selling your game in Windows Store.

Windows 8 is a big leap forward for developers because it treats HTML5 as a first-class citizen, alongside C# and C++. Interactive development expert Jesse Freeman explains how Windows 8 works, gets you started with Visual Studio Express (it’s free!), and uses a case study to show you how to port an HTML5 game with ease.

  • Learn which games and JavaScript libraries work best on Windows 8
  • Adjust artwork for different screen resolutions and Windows 8 features
  • Accommodate mouse, keyboard, touch, and other game controls
  • Optimize your game to run well on any Windows 8 device
  • Understand the steps for publishing your game to Windows Store
  • Explore fixed price, trial mode, ad support, and in-app purchase options
  • Use a web-first workflow to ensure your game runs on many other platforms

Book Description O'Reilly Media. Paperback. Condition: New. 150 pages. Designing, building and publishing games is not an easy task. One of the most challenging parts about publishing a game is how to distribute and monetize it. This is even more daunting when it comes to HTML5 games since cross browser compatibility and viable distribution channels are still maturing. Windows 8 offers an incredible opportunity for independent game developers looking to distribute and monetize their HTML5 based game. This book will cover everything you need to know about porting over your web based JavaScript game to Window 8, how to integrate support for WinJS (the JavaScript communication layer to the native OS), and how to publish and sell your game on the Windows 8 Store. This book is a must read for anyone looking to seriously develop HTML5 games! This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
