Thanks Kristian, I'll give the docker builder a try!

Hi Matt,

I don't know if anyone has tried Hypergiant, but I've been playing around with SDL2:

The Android tooling makes most things extremely painful. The Dockerfile instructions for SDL might be of help to you if you choose to experiment yourself.

Regarding the chicken-sdl2-android docker build process:

The docker build was very helpful. It seems I had tried it some time in the past as it was already installed. FYI, I was not able to build the docker on an Ubuntu 18.04 system, but I was able to "docker export ..." and "docker import ..." to transfer it. I have made a tar gz of the ready-to-use docker under IPFS. If someone wishes to try the docker, installing IPFS and running something like the following command might be easier than running the builder (although probably not any faster):

ipfs cat /ipfs/QmTBTajLA8BmT5CGzEYczEgzJPzDCpyRs73hAEa5isaYGJ | gunzip | docker import

Regarding hypergiant, after many tries it did install in the docker but I have not been able to get the demo to work on android. I'll report back if I get it working.

Thanks Kristian for all the effort you put into the android chicken-sdl2 docker. 

Best of luck!

From the eggs page it looks like hypergiant should work on android. Can
anyone report sucessfully doing so? Is the work flow for deploying on
android documented or tested?

I'm considering using hypergiant instead of godot for a project.
Deploying on Android is a primary goal and being able to use Chicken
would be a welcome boon. Any insight or advice appreciated.
