Microsoft has partnered with Scirra and their Construct 2 platform to create templates that provide an easy way for developers to write Windows 8 & Windows Phone games. Construct 2 is a development platform that makes it very easy to develop simple & fun games targeting multiple platforms.
We will introduce you to Construct 2, walk through what is necessary for creating a basic game, how to export the game to Windows 8, and finally deploy them to the Windows App Store. This goal is to provide you with the kickstart needed to really excel during our Windows 8 Game Hackathon.
