Game distribution

by texmex » Post

Let's say I have a finished game that I want to distribute through the common channels: Itch, Steam etc. How do I set up a nice build environment for major platforms and what should I change in it the client to not confuse it with the regular boilerplate?

I can't find anything anywhere on this topic.

You want to look for articles covering the topic "cross-compiling". Easiest would be running gcc in a clean chroot for each specific platform.

What about Travis?

Sure, if it allows cross-compiling for your target platforms, then yes. This automates the build process in a clean environment.

I'd recommend gitlab ci instead, it allows exporting artifacts so you can download any builds, whereas this is only in Travis's paid plan

The game can be clearly distributed on the apk version at https://techsuspect.com I am using very well.
