Hello,

This is a small game programming series using MonoGame.

Microsoft has stopped working on XNA and so here is MonoGame, to replace XNA. MonoGame is built off of the XNA framework and can be used to build games for windows, windows 8, windows phone, linux, mac, Android, iOs and soon to be Playstation 4 as well.

MonoGame is 100% free

Some games built with MonoGame:

I will cover various aspects with MonoGame but for now let's just get MonoGame installed and ready to use.
You can also use any of the paid versions of Visual studio 2012, express is free :)
After you have everything on that list installed run the installer for MonoGame (my first download link).

If all goes well, when opening visual Studio 2012, Click New Project, under Visual C# you should see the new MonoGame templates. Create a new project and run it. If it worked you should see a window with a cornflower background.

Congratulations you can now use MonoGame!
