    This is perfect. Thank you on behalf of myself and all the other indie devs who will benefit from this!

  2. Den says:

    Thanks for including MonoGame! It's much better than nothing after XNA 5 had been canned.

    I just released another game in the XBOX 360 using XNA (these are both Microsoft products). That makes three games. XNA is so easy to use and so powerful! I will miss this framework.
