    Hi Guys, Apart from Unity Asset Store do you guys know any other stores to get 3d models and enviorments prefab's etc.... I am sort of catching up on unity and unreal engine but dont have a upper hand in blender, or maya, and dont want to create my own assets but rather buy them.

    Shahed, thank you for hosting the meeting. I found it interesting and informative. Please let me know if you discover more information about monogame and/or c# xbox one support while in Chicago. All, I would appreciate some feedback on my latest xna game, Servo Series I: Overclockers. I have a few game codes left so email me at [masked] if you would like one. Regards

      Gary, it's great to see that XNA devs are still publishing to Xbox 360. Check out my XBLIG Sales Data Analyzer on OnekSoftLabs.com to decipher your sales data! :)

      If I hear anything about MonoGame, I will publish new info on my blog WakeUpAndCode.com, and also in the FB group for Xbox One Indie Devs, so stay tuned!

      @Shahed, Thanks! I will definitely let you know when I'm ready to publish to Windows Phone 8, it will probably be later this Summer, after I get a Nokia Phone.
      The indie showcase sounds like a great idea. :)

      @Bashir
      Thank you, I'm glad you like the art direction of the game. Will definitely attend future Microsoft workshops. Regards,
