Google Chrome Web Store Publishing

The Google Chrome Web Store is a great way to share and monetize your games. Now it’s easy to publish your game to the Google Chrome Web Store! There are a few steps you need to follow.

Step 1: Make sure your game is ready

Your game should be of a high enough quality that people will want to buy it or download it. Keep improving it in Gamefroot until you are sure that it’s ready. Then Save the game so it can be published.

Step 2: Start the Publishing Process

When you’re ready to publish, click Publish, then Publish to Chrome Store.

A window will pop up requiring you to upload a 128×128 pixel icon for your game. Make sure to stick to Google’s icon design guidelines. After that, click Next.

Step 3: (Optional) Preview your game as a Chrome Extension

You can preview it as a Chrome Extension before you go through with the publishing process. Your game will be packaged up in a ZIP file that you can access from the URL displayed in this window. Copy that link and paste it in your address bar to download the ZIP file of your game.

To add your game as a Chrome Extension, browse to chrome://extensions inside your Chrome web browser. Make sure Developer Mode is ticked (in the top-right corner). test-extension

Click Load unpacked extension… and browse to the location where you downloaded your game’s ZIP file to, then select that file. Your game will then show up with the icon you’ve uploaded from step 3. Click Launch underneath your game title, and then your game will play. This is how people will experience your app, so make sure you’re satisfied. Then go back to Gamefroot and click Next in the Publish to Chrome window.

Step 4: Sign up as a Chrome Web Store Developer

Before we can continue, make sure you have a Google account, and log in to it. Next, you’ll need to accept the Chrome Store Developer Terms of Service. Go to the Developer dashboard at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/developer/dashboard and click Add New Item. add-new-item

This will open the Terms of Service for you to Accept.

Your game will have been automatically added to your developer account, and all that’s left for you to do is fill in the Chrome Web Store related fields. There are various images and screenshots that the Chrome Web Store requires you to upload. Make sure all required fields are filled in, then click Publish. You’ll then need to pay the Chrome Web store developer one-time fee of $5. your-published-game

Your game may spend a little while waiting for the Google servers to Publish it (my test took roughly 10 minutes). Then your game will be fully published, and you can open it by clicking on the title. hooray

Hooray! Your game is now available from the Chrome Web Store. Congratulations! Now share it with everyone you know!

    I have longstanding friendships with men that I appreciate as do I have
    the same with women. In most cases if we say that an event or endeavor may be “risky” this commonly suggests a negative outcome.
