This lesson summarizes all that I have learned from my experience in publishing our first mobile game so your experience in making your own mobile game will go more smoothly. In this lesson, I’ll show you some of the issues I had building a game on mobile. We will discuss things like limitations in joint count, polygon count, and shader complexity. Then we will go through the process of setting up Unreal for developing for Android. We’ll show how to install the correct Android SDK for Unreal and how to move from development to deployment. We’ll upload our game to the Google Play store and set up things like achievements, leaderboard, and in-app purchases. From there we’ll port our project over to the Mac using Mac-In-Cloud, get our mobile provisioning profiles from the Apple Developer site, and upload our game to iTunes Connect.
