Hi, I want to host a webGL in shopify rather than embed from a third party website like simmer.io using iframe.

Is this possible? This is the game https://aquenture.itch.io/race-against-time  I dont want to embed I want to host on shopify.

Please let me know.

Best regards,
Timur

Thank you but that is not what I am looking for. I am looking to put a
game, into my website. A WebGL embedded into the page.

Hi I don't think you understand me. Please do not give me seperate links to click on.

Please go here www.aquenture.net 
You will see a game load up as part of the web page, not the entire page. I've done this using iframe but now comes the tricky part, get ready:

1. I uploaded my game as a zip folder to *simmer.io*

2. I then used iframe to embed into my shopify site.

What I want to do is instead of using *simmer.io* I want to do step 1. (Upload my game) onto shopify.

I hope this has made it clear. I already saw what you sent me from research myself so in essence you're not understanding and wasting my time.

You would have to test this.

 

a) you would want to VIEW source of that page and note the code and js references

b) click on the js  references and save page as, then call it the same name as the js

c) you would then have to upload these js files to your  ONLINE STORE --> Actions --> Edit Code --> scroll down to ASSETS and add new asset and upload these files

d) you would have a make a template page on your website

e) you would have to reference these js files and any other scripts and css for the page directly.

f) if accessing or adding links to your assets files is typically like this   {{ 'my-file.js | asset_url }}    - you can reference this cheat sheet for liquid

You would have to tinker around with it. 

THE CORRECT WAY:
But it is typically rendered on Shopify via API  with the Unity Game Engine and this: https://learn.unity.com/tutorial/how-to-publish-for-webgl

Sometimes you just need a developer.
