    What would be the best resolution for loading the game into the browser or as a standalone game to download?


    Thanks!

    there is no "best" resolution, because there are too many points to consider.


    If you're using a large screen size, anyone with a smaller monitor can no longer play it.


    But if you're using a small screen size for your game, it becomes tiny on large monitors


    All your graphic assets have to fit your screen size - especially the backgrounds.


    Larger backgrounds are usually more expensive to create and increase the download size.


    So there is no single answer, it depends on your wishes and options and budget etc.

    @Zak i've tested some resolutions and for mobile gaming i've found out that 960x540 is the best to go for now. But PC Games i really recommend 1280x720 especially for visual novels.


    Graphics quality is quite important in visual novels.
