Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Game development is a major industry today. Due to the complexity of game development, which require a mechanism for rendering objects on a screen and managing art, sound effects and other content it can be difficult for beginners to get started. The purpose of this project was to see whether or not the game development framework XNA created by Microsoft is suitable for game development from a beginners point of view. As a beginners in game development we designed and implemented a game demo using the tools provided in Microsoft XNA. We used this demo as a base for our evaluation of the XNA framework. In our research we have found that the XNA framework provides several advantages that we consider to be especially useful for beginners in game development.
