LXer: How MonoGame Can Bring More Games to Linux

Published at LXer:

MonoGame 2.0 was released on October 27 bringing support for 2D XNA APIs for Linux. MonoGame was previously known as XNATouch and is an open source implementation of the XNA tools in OpenGL. MonoGame can bring a large number of popular games to Linux, which were until now only working on XBox and Windows. Game developers will now be easily able to port their 2D games to Linux. In fact developers of Indie game Wizorb, which is rising fast in popularity are porting their game to Linux using MonoGame 2.0. Just within a week of MonoGame adding support for Linux, we have our first game (there may be more) and I am sure more developers will follow. Next major release of MonoGame, 3.x series will bring 3D API support that will bring even more games to Linux.
