I'm going to release my game in Steam October 1st.
Alright, currently I load my dialogues and save my game data in .INI files. Now, it is very easy to modify these files if player so wishes. I was planning to add encryption to these files but I have not found a good way to do it.
I'd like to have something simple but efficient, so all the suggestions are more than welcome!
Another one is that I'm storing all the files in app path, it seems simple to have them there. However I'd like to hear if this is going to be a problem for some reason, or should it be good to go? I was thinking all the writing permissions when writing a save data etc.
Has anyone released in Steam? How does the updates work? Do you need to submit some sort of update or just a new .exe?
I'd also love to hear how did your game releasing go, anything surprising or things I should take in consideration?
