I myself am not a programmer or game developer but I have been working with people to make small educational games for kids. I have created a few but am stuck on this question. I exported a game and with gzip on a server I have the file size down to 75MB. When testing it still takes a long time to load and I approached a game developer and was told that was a good size for a game. I asked if it was possible to get games down to close to 20MB but he said that is impossible with Unreal Engine 4.
So after all that here is the question I really need to know. Can you make an HTML 5 game with unreal engine and have it run on a server without huge load times? I know I can try to size my game down even further but I do not want to continue my course of making games with Unreal 4 if it is not possible for them to run on servers.
If anybody else has made games that can be run on the web how do you do it? Is there really ways to get the file size down or are there setups on servers you can do to make the game load fast. I am not a big gamer myself but my friends play tons of online games that are all hosted online and they have to have bigger file sizes than mine so how do they do it?
Any input would be great as I make this tough decision to continue or not. (please note I really love the Unreal engine and I do not want to give it up if there is a small chance it will work with html5)
