Compile for Web / Other Devices?


#1

Is it possible to compile games for the web, or anything else such as native (.exe), android, etc?

I love how flexible TIC-80 is in this regard (but it doesn’t really run on any physical gameboy style devices, which is teh suckz0r)

Cheers

Yes. PokittoLib is possible to transpile to asmJS to run in a web browser and has been done, but no automatic tools exist (yet)


#3

The Pokitto simulator emits native .exe files and uses SDL as its rendering mechanism.

SDL is able to compile for lots of different platforms, so theoretically it will work for anything SDL can compile for.


#4

And Emscripten (asmJS transpiler) specifically supports SDL, which is why I chose to use it
