develop 100 70 MONOGAME


OPEN-SOURCE PROJECT MonoGame was first started in 2009 with the goal of porting games created with Microsoft’s XNA Framework to mobile devices, through what was then called XNA Touch.


The project was renamed MonoGame and moved to GitHub in 2011, and following Microsoft’s decision to abandon XNA, has become a champion of the framework.


The tool, used in PS4 title Transistor, is available to use with iOS, Android, Mac, Linux and Windows 8 Metro, with PS4, PlayStation Mobile, and Raspberry Pi support also on the way.

71 GRANITE SDK


THE GRANITE SDK offers texture streaming and compression solutions that aid developers in drastically increasing graphical fidelity without sacrificing storage or memory – something that can be crucial when creating high-end mobile games. Graphine’s middleware package uses fine-grained streaming of small texture tiles and a highly optimised streaming pipeline to ensure low-latency when fetching texture data. Any textures that are not visible will not be loaded in the memory. Meanwhile, the firm’s custom compression tech ensure textures don’t take up too much storage.
