  • Very nice.

    HTML + JS has a fixed screen layout which will allow your game to scale nicely to the various screen sizes.  There are other choices as well.  You have the screen resolution down.  Of course higher resolutions work as well... 

    You might appreciate an external sensor for adding shake or sensor input to the game as all Windows 8 tablets and convertibles will have a sensor.  You can always add that later.

    You are set with no need for a camera. 

    Enjoy developing on Windows 8.  Let me know if you have any questions.

    Best Wishes - Eric
