Last week I started work on a new project.
This project is huge, far bigger than anything else I’ve taken on in the past. I’m going to be launching a kickstarter campaign in the following weeks to try and get it funded.
There is nothing to show yet but here is a little bit of information. The game will be a Real Time Strategy City Builder set in a block world.
Well this should be easy to do since windows phone and WinRt share most of the same framework! Wrong!! Microsoft have made it a real pain by not giving us a simple way to get the user id on both platforms. The fact that ANID2 is not available on WinRt is stupid. Now I have a nightmare of a job to allow the syncing of IAP across both platforms.
I want to support a Universal app but Microsoft are not making it easy for me. Sure they provide Azure but I really don’t want to including a new API into my project.
No ETA on release yet. The game is almost ready, just got the last issue to deal with.
