    I am wondering if it is possible to publish my game to the apple App Store without paining a Mac. I am creating my video game from a windows PC.

    A Mac is necessary for xCode which is required to publish on iOS. Apple requires this ;)

    For true testing purposes I'd recommend an actual mac. An issue is simulators don't work with Buildbox 3 and connecting a physical device is tricky with the cloud services

    @GustyHyena the issue is that Apple has a terms of service. Using anything other than a Mac to publish a game to the App Store will result in a permanent removal from the App Store. They have a zero tolerance, so it’s not worth the risk

    no you need to buy a Mac like the rest of us if you want to do iOS development the only way to do it is on a Mac, so borrow or buy a mac, and you will be fine.
