At the moment you have the following options for Windows 8 store apps:

  • c++ with DirectX
  • c#/vb.net, c++ and XAML
  • HTML5 and JavaScript
  • C# and MonoGame

Unity support is reportedly in the pipeline, but has no public release date and news seems to be a little quiet as of late.

 

If you're familiar with things such as XNA, then MonoGame is a nice option, but it's not an 'engine'.

 

It's worth noting that most Engines support Windows 8, but not for Windows 8 store apps.
