JavaScript Introducing JavaScript Let's Make a Game The Language of Programming

I would like to launch this locally but get totally lost when trying to "Run" the game.

How would someone set this simple game up on their own server? I want to learn programming in a live development, if possible.

The workspace creates a server for you, so when you run the the game, it is already "live". It's just temporary and the server goes away when you don't have the workspace open.

If you were to copy the workspace files to the storage space on a system where you have obtained hosting, it would work the same, but have a persistent URL where anyone could connect to it.
