Have you ever thought about making video games but have decided that you’re just a “line-of-business” developer? Does game development seem like a mystic black art? Nonsense! The XNA Framework is ready for you to use C# or Visual Basic to create fantastic games that you can publish today for Windows Phone, the PC, and the Xbox 360. You can leverage your existing .NET skills and make money on Microsoft device platforms as well as other publishing channels. But how do you get started? Come see how surprisingly easy it is to create your own games with XNA Game Studio. We’ll start at File > New Project and use graphics, sound, music, and read input devices to create a complete game with no previous game development experience required!
