Subject: Particle Wars - XNA Game/Tech Demo


Matt Stum has shared his first XNA Game/Tech Demo on the Microsoft XNA Forums. Called Particle Wars, it is the results of Matt's first experiments with XNA development.


You'll need an XBox 360 controller to get started (unless you modify the code to allow you to hit the space bar like I did!). Matt posts:

Here's my first "game"... well, it's a beta... alpha... okay, it's a "technology demonstrator". I didn't start out to write a game. I just wanted to see if I could load and draw a texture. Now let's make it move. How about bounce off the edge of the screen? Move it with the thumbstick? Encapsulate it in a sprite class? How about a particle? An explosion? Woops, a bug in my explosion code... but the bug made a *really* neat background effect! Now let's shoot projectiles with the other thumbstick a-la Geometry Wars. Let's make THEM explode! And so on and so on and so on...

Matt's Particle Wars source code can be found at and the full post can be read on the XNA Forums.
