How to embed your HTML5 Game into your Ludum Dare page

Upload your game folder to google drive.
(I use gamemaker studio, which spits out an index.html, favicon and asset folder. Toss these into just one folder and upload that for convenience)


1

Right click the folder, click share, and then share again
2

 

You’ll get this menu, you need to click advanced to get the options we need.

4

Change the link sharing permissions to “On – Public on the web” and click save.

 

 

 

5

now that you’re ready to go, copy JUST THE I.D. from the ‘Link to share’ box…

 

 

6

 

…and copy it into your address bar like so: “https://googledrive.com/host/[GAME ID]”
(its very important that you include the https at the start)
This should load your game (sometimes google drive folders are not accessible for a few minutes, be patient)

7

 

now copy the entire url of your loaded game into the ludum dare submission form and enter the width and height of your game.

    Thank you so much! This was a huge help to me!

    I use Unity, and the process is exactly the same.

    …actually, I’ve just discovered that this is a bad idea. If your player doesn’t have a Google account, they won’t be able to see the index.html page. If they try to use the embedded player, they won’t even get an error message – just a blank screen.
