Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

Post » Tue Jun 09, 2015 3:47 pm

Until now, I just developed 2 games for android, but now I want to try something to get greenlit on steam. I'm aware that I will take a long time to finish but I wanted to try. My first doubts is:

How do we compile the game after exporting it? The exe file, setup... these stuffs
Is nw.js working? because I can't preview using it. See below:

Besides steam, which platform could I use?

Please, someone that already have a game on steam or just greenlit could add some valuable information?

Thanks.

@kossglobal

The node-webkit side of C2 was stripped from the installation of C2 a long time ago (massively reducing the download size).

You need to install node-wekit separately, and it can be downloaded from here:

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

To massively reduce the download size of each release.
There are more often C2 releases than new NW.JS releases.
