The development of educational games is one form of school's entrepreneurship. Teachers might create the games based on their expertise and knowledge using the most familiar game engines. The high number of teachers who share their expertise and knowledge through the education game will create bigger multiplier effect for teachers, schools and students. One of easy tools to be used for teachers in developing the educational game is RPG Maker. However, the products are not so interesting for the students because they have to play in the personal computer (PC) while the small computer called smartphone and tablet computer are most widely used. Increasing the joy and easiness to play the games is the important part in the educational games. The objective is not only to increase the successfulness of the learning, but also to increase the possibility in the school entrepreneurship. This paper will present the strategy to transform the game products for the smartphone and tablet computer and make the teacher able to create the educational games more easily. The provision of a prototype for mobile game making and a procedure for mobile game publishing will be discussed and compared with the responses of teachers. Feedbacks on the ease of use of the tool, creation of the games, and the confidence in publishing the games were used to build a model of mobile games development for teachers’ entrepreneurship in education. The model is expected to support teachers in developing school's entrepreneurship through the development of interesting educational game.
