Learn HTML and CSS in the context of a 2D puzzle platformer! Super Markup Man teaches real web development practices without making you write any code. While previously released on both Windows and Mac in 2016.
Super Markup Man now available on Linux:
“I’m happy to announce that Super Markup Man is finally running on Linux! Please note that it has only been tested on Ubuntu 16 and only supports 64-bit. Certain features like the Steam Overlay are also not working, but I will continue to look into it.”
So Linux testing has some limits. But the games available now fully cross-platform. Meaning we have the capability to play singleplayer, local co-op or shared split-screen. So that being said, gameplay will likely work fine across other distro‘s. And the games 2017 release is not overly expensive either. Check it out on Steam and Itch.
Therefore Super Markup Man gameplay has players carrying tags. These are setup within the screen. So you can watch your website render in real-time. Match your website with the preview to pass each level.

So Clark from Roppy Chop Studios has past HTML-teaching games and apps. Which have been some of his more apt projects. Therefore it is time for a “quintessential version.” Since this also covers CSS, which is the part of web development that truly gives life to HTML. So he is taking the original, browser-based Super Marup Man. Since this was created three years earlier, giving it a major face lift. Purchasing new character spritesheets from Game Dev Market. As well as sound effects from Little Robot Sound Factory. And adding music courtesy of Kevin MacLeod.
