Game Graphics Development


  • I have moved from C++ to using C# more for most of my programming needs. I found XNA to be fun to use, and I am currently programming away on a 2D game. I read a comment on this page that discussed other options for C# game development. One is using DirectX which  seemed to be similar to C++ and how one would setup a DirectX platform to work from. Is there other information perhaps on more abilities of the C# language such as OpenGL or is C# still fairly fresh to the programming industry?

  • If you are looking to write game graphics in C#, then you should look at these projects:

    On Microsoft platforms, Direct3D is the preferred graphics API. OpenGL is an option for Win32 desktop applications where appropriate ICDs are installed, but is not available for Windows Phone 8 or Windows Store apps.
