Description

Native C++ Game Development is one of the most requested features that we're delivering in Windows Phone 8, and in this episode of Inside Windows Phone, we asked Sam George to give us a whirlwind tour.

Native C++ programming enables:

  • Writing of high performing games for the phone using D3D
  • Sharing of a tremendous amount of code across Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 in game development
  • Easy porting of games from other platforms to Windows and Windows Phone using common C++ class libraries
  • Using middleware engines such as Havok and Unity, to make it easier than ever to bring games to Windows and Windows Phone
