How should I get the images for Google Play?

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Sat Jan 17, 2015 4:00 pm

I'm planning on releasing a game in the next few days and (based on that this will be my first game on Google Play) I'm a bit confused about the images it's asking for.

What do you suggest, how should I take the preview images for my applications for the different devices (telephone, 7" and 10" tablet)? I don't own all these kind of devices, so capturing them while running the app is out of the question.

Could you run it in preview (browser) and resize the window to suit, then screenshot and copy/paste out of it? Using a smart screen grabber would make that easier. For the 'native' resolution you could export a nodewebkit, window-frameless then when you alt-prtscr you get only the game screen.

Hi,

You don't need to add screen shots to every device. It's enough if you add at least 2 or 3 at the phone category.
Then you need a Icon with 512x512;.png (alpha allowed) or jpeg and a header image with 1024x500px;png or jpeg;

If you have further questions, just let me know ;)

If it is designed for tablet as well as phone, then you'll probably want the other categories too.
