I saw your post on the Slick2D forums. Are you backing away from that too?

Yeah, I am thinking about switching to XNA, it looks promising.

XNA isn't even in development anymore. There are plenty of other game engines that support Microsoft platforms. Wave seems pretty cool, but I'm waiting for it to mature a bit more until I give it a try.

It's really a pity that LÖVE will likely never work om Windows Phone and Metro Windows...

I never used Slick. I was going to, but I was suggested to use LibGDX. So nah... Plus, I'm actually trying to use LibGDX. It's not really going well, but I'm trying.

I know C#, but I don't want to use XNA because, like T-Bone said, it's not in development anymore and I don't think you can develop for it on a Mac, but I could be wrong.

Why a Mac? Why not get a Windows Partition? I hate Windows. So many viruses, and IMO it's really hard to use. I use my Windows partition for booting into Linux(Ubuntu 12.10). The only reason I use Windows is to 1) Get Bitmap Fonts and 2) For publisher(schoolwork). I just don't understand why people don't just use Linux ;) But that's another discussion for another time :D

If you want to develope games for mac , linux , android , ios , ps3 , ps4 , xbox an so on then choose MonoGame its the same thing as XNA even the syntax just its portable
