Today I took a dive into the world of game development with DotNet Rocks episode 910, Building a Game in .NET with Andrea Magnorsky and Andrew O’Connor.

When this podcast popped up I got really stoked. Who of us wouldn’t want to build the next Angry Birds, Minecraft or GTA?

Maybe it will never happen but you never now. With the frameworks and game and graphics engines that exists today anyone could build a game. Some are even open source. Andrea and Andrew are building a game called Honorbound and are using the open source engine Duality. They also mention MonoGame and Unity and give a lot of good advice.

Now, the problem is to find a good story and a fun gameplay and that is not easy. But who knows, maybe you or I will be the one talking about our games on podcasts and game shows in the upcoming years.
