Topics I've Started

Can someone please explain to me .net game development on the Windows phone and PC?

28 March 2015 - 11:49 AM

Without XNA.  Please no XNA.

 

Without C++.  Is it possible?

 

With C#.

 

I am so confused by all the things out there for Windows Game development, phone and OS.

 

Most things I read say to use XNA and typically they point to Windows 7 or 8, but not 8.1 or it is hacky.  XNA is not supported so I do not wish to use it.

 

Is .NET used to make Windows phone apps for games?  I've made small applications for the Windows phone, but not a game.

 

(Also hoping someone could tell me if I am still limited to c++ (no .net) for the Windows OS, PC, Xbox One(?))

 

Any help is appreciated.  Please.

 

Thank you.


What kind of math do you use to balance games?

I know that is vague, but I saw a job that said you have to have a skillset that included knowing the way to balance games with the right math.  I'm guessing they are more puzzle games but I don't know.  Hoping for thoughts.


Is the era of C# for game programming gone?

Is the era of C# for game programming gone?  I read XNA isn't going to be supported or improved anymore.  I know that's old news, but I was curious about the future of C# and game programming?  Should I skip C# and go to Java?  Move to C++?  Thanks for opinions.


Why would someone make a game using Wordpress as the framework?

I was looking around and came across an RPG for Wordpress.  I thought it was interesting.  Neat project, but I was curious.  Why would someone use Wordpress for a game?  What about Drupal?  Does anyone do that (obviously text based games)?  Examples of any games online you know of?  Thanks.


Do any commercial games use the free sprites?

Sprites from places like openart.  Does anyone use them for commercial games, like the ones on Steam?
