    How To Sell HMTL5 Applications

    If you can't make an exe file or an swf file and have to run the application from a server, how do you go about selling it?

    I would guess you would have to crate a site where people could have a membership then they could pay for whatever game they wanted to play. That is just off the top of my head.

    Yes, you are correct. I already am using Teachers Pay Teachers to sell my software digitally. The membership idea is enticing but fraught with complications.
    Thanks,

    Could you use nw.js to act as a container? I've used it a lot for creating stand alone web applications.

    It seems what you asking is already sort of a broken concept, imo. You can't sell your game as a product because it relies on the web, web hosting, etc. You would need to sell it as a service. So the membership idea is probably the only way to go, but also won't gain much traction unless you have a lot of content to attract players.

    Thanks mobican. That seems to be true. I already have my company set up to sell exe and swf files digitally to teachers, so it would not work to place them online. I thought I could use the HTML5 versions as examples or free test runs for teachers to see online, but I can do that with the Flash versions as well. So, the end result is, I see no reason to use HTML5 at all.

    Because all the browsers will stop supporting Flash soon, and HTML5 is the only supported alternative
