    • Blue :I asked it Sandy via twitter, and he said Studio includes HTML5, and if you buy HTML5 now, you will get a discount on Studio.

      Hmmm, what about people who don’t want HTML5 but do want the other exporters like iOS and Android? I guess its okay if HTML5 is thrown in for free, but I don’t want to have to pay more for Studio because of it.

  1. I was think about which version to buy. But I decided to go by standard edition, cause I’m poor right now (depression which makes it hard for me to work right now) cause if I’m gonna buy the html I also want a site to put the game (which will cost even more).

    Thankfully the swedish krona is VERY strong against the dollar the recent years. The price 99$ for html is in Swedish crowns what a regular xbox360 game cost in the store, and 39$ is the price of 2 sets of guitar strings in swedish money :p hihi lucky me
