About

MonoGame

MonoGame is a simple and powerful .NET framework for creating games for desktop PCs, video game consoles, and mobile devices using the C# programming language. It has been succesfully used to create games such as Streets of Rage 4, Carrion, Celeste, Stardew Valley, and many others.

It is an open-source re-implementation of the discontinued Microsoft's XNA Framework.
