So just wanted to get other peoples opinions on this.
I am working on the design of a new 2D game, targeted for the PC platform.
My question is, since t win8 is the next big thing, and with XNA is no longer being further developed. Since this kind of 2d game can be built with no problems in the current XNA framework, and the game will not need to support anything 'metro' style, does it make sense to just build it in XNA? it should run fine in win8 in the legacy style non metro space. Assuming getting onto the windows storefront is not a requirement.
I love the XNA platform, and really am not looking forward to learning something new be it Unity etc, since i am only developing 2d games that do not require the power of a bigger engine. But i'm just wondering if others that love to make 2D games plan on continuing with XNA development even with win8 and metro style apps growing in popularity, or would pursuing development with the XNA platform be a mistake? and i should focus my efforts on a new development platform that will fully integrate with the win8?
just wondering how others feel on this topic
