Is there any way to distribute games virally?

Recommended Posts

Care to eleaborate?

 

There are plenty of facebook games that went viral, and whether they are made with HTML5 or not makes no difference in that respect - actually, being more portable may actually help.

Facebook is great but how about small portal holders? How are they supposed to distribute their games and earn?

HTML5 games by itself dont spread that good. But if you put on Google Play, Itunes or Facebook then the same rules applies as to native rules about spreading.

To earn money on native you have to spend a lot more efforts and budget on a game and it may easily fail to pay off.

Am i right?

Because portal owners just get code to embed HTML5 games instead of the full game files so they can host them in their servers they refute HTML games.

I understand their wish to host all files from games.

Imagine you don't host the HTML5 games. You just embed them in your arcade.

If game owner shows inappropriate content / ads you (the arcade owner) may loose users, get banned from Google and have your reputation destroyed.

The same way arcade owners don't trust game developers to just embed their games, developers don't trust arcade owners because the risk of have their work stollen / ads removed.

In a perfect world no one would have to worry about cheaters... but we're not in a perfect world.

Stealing html5 game is no problem at all, even if it is hosted on another's website
