Building a release

Now that your code is complete, you have all of the metadata prepared, and you've embedded the asset files, it's time to actually build the release. We will look at this process in three stages, as follows:

  1. Deciding which platforms to release for and setting up the tools
  2. Building the binary files for release
  3. Preparing the actual packages that you will distribute

Assuming that you will be distributing to multiple operating systems, there may be some preparatory stages to go through before you can build all of the release binaries.
