XNA Game Programming Adventures
XNA Links

Welcome to my the XNA and Resource Links page. You will find links on this page to other XNA sites on the web as well as links to resources you can use in creating your games. I will try and only post links to resources that are free to use.

XNA Links

XNA Creators Club
Perhaps one of the most important web sites for XNA game programmers is the XNA Creators Club. The XNA Creators Club has many tutorials and resources. It has terrific video tutorials to help you get started with 2D and 3D gaming. If you want to develop games for the XBOX, you will need a membership.

XNA Developer Center
This is Microsoft's XNA Developer's Center. You will find all of the latest information about XNA here.

Nick Gravelyn
Nick has some excellent posts and tutorials available on his web site. I learned a lot from his tutorials on creating a tiling engine. I recommend visiting his web site.

Game Resources & Tools

Spiral Graphics
Spiral Graphics has a free tool called Genetica Viewer for creating seamless textures. I use this tool frequently when I am creating game resources. I used Genatica Viewer to create the tile set for my Eyes of the Dragon game.

The GIMP
The GIMP is GNU's Image Processor. While not as fully featured as Adobe's Photoshop it is an excellent program for image processing. I use it frequently when I am creating any type of graphics.

Paint.NET
Paint.NET is another graphics package. It is very useful when creating game graphics. Coupled with The GIMP it makes an excellent tool for creating graphics.

OpenGameArt.org
OpenGameArt.org is a great site for game resources for Open Source games. I used some of their sprites and music in my latest entry at Game Institute that I will be releasing as an Open Source game once it is 100% complete.

Good luck with your XNA game programming adventures.
