[Solved] making a game for android?

#1 Post by glithch » Sun Dec 04, 2016 1:59 pm

ok so i checked out some tutorials etc. and making your game into an android one doesnt seem all that complicated, but;;
do i need to write my game with android in mind?? or can i just write the game and then just do this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ho8m8_C ... freload=10

also, does uploading apps to google play cost anything?

you can make your game without thinking about android UI but still it would be better to make it for mobile touchscreen since default renpy buttons are very small. it is one time $25 dollars, if you live somewhere else it will still be $25 american dollars for that currency. This is the list that accepts developers from other countries and if you are allowed to sell games:
