Create a Linux game
Before following these instructions, make sure you've followed the instructions in Linux - Setup and requirements.
In the Stride launcher, create a new game and select Linux as a target platform.
In Game Studio, in the platforms menu, select Linux.
Press F5 to build and run the project.
The first time you run the project, enter information about your Linux host:

Like any Stride project, you can also compile the project directly from Visual Studio or from the command line. In both cases, you need to select a valid configuration:
Debug and Release target Mono. The others target .NET Core.
Once your project is loaded in Visual Studio, select the Linux project. In the Solution Configurations drop-down menu, you select a valid Linux configuration:
To compile for Linux, from a command line, use:
msbuild /p:Platform=Linux /p:Configuration=CONFIG YourGame.sln
Where CONFIG is a valid Linux configuration.
No debugging facility yet
Switching the rendering graphics platform might cause the game to hang on startup. As a workaround, on the Linux host, in the directory where the game is deployed, delete the following directories:
