In Topic: Direct 2D for game Programming

13 December 2012 - 03:33 AM

I asked the same question to Kenny Kerr and his reply is:

Direct2D is the premiere graphics API on Windows today. Although its focus is on 2D rendering, it has many features that enable 3D scenes and interop with Direct3D is excellent. It is ideally suited to game development, and is available on Windows for PCs (x86/x64), Windows RT (ARM tablets), and Windows Phone 8 (unofficially). I suspect it will eventually be available on Xbox as well but I have no information about that.

If you have no yet learned Direct3D I would highly recommend you start with Direct2D. You can then always learn about Direct3D after that.
