HTML5 game embeds allow you to deploy your browser based game directly to a page on itch.io. Visitors can start playing immediately without having to navigate anywhere. Although this is convenient, some game engines (ahem Unity) can cause your browser to lag when loading a game. This can be quite troublesome if you've just opened a dozen tabs while browsing around. Starting now you can enable "Click to run" on your account for all HTML5 embeds.
In place of the game frame you'll see a Run button, just click it to launch the game.
In order to enable it, head to your account settings and select "Require a click to run HTML5 game embeds."
We were also considering adding the ability for some developers to force their projects to be "click to run." If you think this would be something useful for you leave a comment.
