Microsoft releases 2D game development tutorial for XNA

Have you ever looked at some of the games created by the independent developers for the Xbox Indie platform and thought, “I bet making something like that would be fun, but I have no idea where to start,” or perhaps “I bet I could make a way better game than Try Not to Fart, but I just don’t know how.” Good news, Microsoft has just released the perfect tutorial for you.

Hate to see the achievement list for all the massage games.

It's the concern for Achievement abuse with indie games, since it is almost entirely community driven.

That said, XNA has always had unmatched excellence in documentation and tutorials available. It's really a fantastic community.

All I'm asking for is Kinect support in XNA!!!

XNA came loaded on my school laptop. I've been meaning to screw around with it for a while now.

<PS3 Fanboy>omg theyre copying LittleBigPlanet!!!!11!!!111one oneeleven</PS3 Fanboy>

seriously though, XNA is fantastic. Massive kudos to microsoft for creating XNA and allowing joe blow to make his or her own xbox 360 game. and to think people say that microsoft dont like user created content lol. it doesnt get much more user created than creating a game from scratch.

Though you can't create the next Crysis using XNA, XNA is still great for indie developers.
