Starting last weekend and spilling over into this week I successfully  ported my Ludum Dare entry onto html5! At first I wasn’t sure what to expect, I knew there would be many problems to solve, but I thought it would take a lot more work to figure it out than it actually did. Also unexpected was that most of the problems I encountered were specific to each website I ported to (Itch.io and Newgrounds). Overall it was an easy experience thanks to Gamemaker and Humble Bundle. If you’re familiar with Gamemaker, but haven’t coughed up the dough to buy those expensive modules, now is a great time! Alternatively, if you’re new or newer to game dev, Gamemaker is a great place to start. Especially for people like me who hate most programming languages. You can get Gamemaker Pro, plus modules(HTML5, IOS, Android,Windows UWP), plus several games w/source code for only $15! If you are even only mildly interested in Gamemaker as your main engine, I suggest you take this deal! This is seriously a great act of generosity from YoYo games and Humble Bundle. In addition, Shaun Spalding has created a list of very good 3rd party tutorials for Gamemaker to help all the new people. I recommend the one by Tom Francis to start if you’re new to programming.

Edit: Bundle is Over. When I first wrote this the bundle still had like 4 days left. Not sure if this is normal but it took almost 7 days for my post to get published. As for the other part of my post, game is still running HTML
