I made a game playable on Midi Controller

Who needs a gamepad anyway?

This game prototype is designed from the ground up with midi controllers in mind. Sliders, knobs, buttons… can we turn this musical controller into something that makes sense for a video game?

I used the rust programming language to make this game

Game Development with .NET

We’ve launched a new Game Development with .NET section on our site. It’s designed for current .NET developers to explore all the choices available to them when developing games. It’s also designed for new developers trying to learn how to use .NET by making games. We’ve also launched a new game development Learn portal for .NET filled with tutorials, videos, and documentation provided by Microsoft and others in the .NET game development community. Finally, we launched a step-by-step Unity get-started tutorial that will get you started with Unity and writing C## scripts for it in no time. We are excited to show you what .NET has to offer to you when making games. .NET is also part of Microsoft Game Stack, a comprehensive suite of tools and services just for game development.

.NET for game developers

.NET is cross-platform. With .NET you can target over 25+ different platforms with a single code base. You can make games for, but not limited to, Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, and mixed reality devices.

C## is the most popular programming language in game development. The wider .NET community is also big. There is no lack of expertise and support you can find from individuals and user groups, locally or online.

.NET does not just cover building your game. You can also use it to build your game’s website with ASP.NET, your mobile app using Xamarin, and even do remote rendering with Microsoft Azure. Your skills will transfer across the entire game development pipeline.

Available game engines

The first step to developing games in .NET is to choose a game engine. You can think of engines as the frameworks and tools you use for developing your game. There are many game engines that use .NET and they differ widely. Some of the engines are commercial and some are completely royalty free and open source. I am excited to see some of them planning to adopt .NET 5 soon. Just choose the engine that better works for you and your game. Would you like to read a blog post to help you learn about .NET game engines, and which one would be best for you?

How to Develop an NFT Gaming Platform From Scratch?

In general, developing an NFT gaming platform from scratch is similar to creating any blockchain application. Still, there are some unique aspects of NFT game development that make them worthy of mentioning in a step-wise order. The steps below give you a glimpse of building an NFT gaming platform from scratch.

  • Initially, one must plan all the facets of an NFT game. This includes technology, gameplay nature, blockchain(s) to work, market, target audience, competitors, and business plans. A road map should be drawn based on the observations.
  • Now, design the game’s prototype and get it tested with limited users. Based on the feedback, you can shape the game's front-end by designing all the in-game aspects.
  • Then, create the back–end features for the NFT gaming platform. Here, you should also integrate blockchain(s), smart contracts, and native tokens of your game.
  • Now, test the NFT gaming platform extensively for bugs and debug any errors that might be present.
  • At last, launch the NFT gaming platform for public use. Get gamer feedback and implement them in future updates to stay competitive in the gaming world.

If you want to create an NFT gaming platform, consider approaching a development firm that can help you realize your ideas.
