MonoGame is an open source implementation of the Microsoft XNA 4.x Framework.
Our goal is to make it easy for XNA developers to create cross-platform games with extremely high code reuse.
- iOS (including Retina displays)
- Windows (OpenGL & DirectX)
- Mac OS X
- Windows Store Apps (for Windows 8 and Windows RT)
- Windows Phone 8
- PlayStation Mobile (currently 2D only)
- OUYA, an Android-based gaming console
There are a few pre-requisites that you should be aware of for the various platforms. Please check them over MonoGame website.
There are four quick start options available:
- Download the current stable release from our website.
- Download the latest "unstable" installer from our build server.
- Download the latest source code.
- Fork and clone the repo:
The solution and project files are generated by Protobuild when you double-click
Protobuild.exe on Windows or run
mono Protobuild.exe under Mac OS or Linux. To modify the projects you must edit the .definition file in the
Build/Projects/ folder and re-execute Protobuild.
For more information and advanced usage, please refer to the Protobuild wiki.
