Hi, I am going to have a project on creating games for the new Windows 8 Platform using Visual Studio 2012. I can't seem to find any good or reliable game engine or library for creating a game for Windows 8 Platform.
I can't use Construct 2 because it is drag and drop tool with no programming required.

Any suggestion ? :)

Microsoft has released a specification for Windows 8 development.

  • Direct3D11
  • No D3DX usage
  • For Windows 8 and newer - XAudio 2.8 only
  • etc.

    It would be not easy to find such engine.

    Backward compatibility would be OK,

    • DirectX SDK June 2010
    • Direct3D11 without 11.1 level
    • XAudio 2.7
    • Windows SDK for Windows 8
    • DirectXMath
    • etc.
