I'm a geekette who enjoys playing with new technology for software developers. I work as a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft. My current focus is on Windows Store development for Windows 8.
Over the last year, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some college students who are building games. Some of the students have published games in the Windows Store. Most games are free. Check out the screenshots below – there are some really fun games, addictive puzzles, creative storylines, and impressive graphics. If you run Windows 8, please download and check them out!
Many of these apps were created using Scirra’s Construct 2 tool, which is awesome for developing 2D games. If you want to give game development a try using this tool, I recommend the beginner’s tutorial. There are more resources at http://aka.ms/JenStudent.
