SongArc, one of the more popular games on the Windows platform, is now a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app for Windows 10. With the update, the popular interactive music game is now supported across Windows 10 platforms.
Speaking with Microsoft, SongArc CEO Andras Velvart explained that the UWP conversion let the team to share a majority of the code across platforms, allowing them to experiment with new gestures.
The SongArc story begins with Xamarin's MonoGame cross-platform game engine. While the team created the game first on Windows due to centralized resources and enthusiastic beta testers, Andras says that the cross-platform focus was a priority from Day One.
"Over 90 percent of the game is shared cross-platform, not re-written," he said. "That was a huge time-saver."
That allowed the team to experiment with the input methods and gestures that became crucial to the gaming experience.
