Total Miner Development => Development Updates => Topic started by: Craig on September 05, 2013, 08:04:20 AM
MS are sending out responses to ID@Xbox applications this week apparently.
ID@Xbox is the department within MS that will be dealing with Self Published Indie Games for the Xbox One.
We sent ID@Xbox an application to develop Total Miner for the Xbox One.
ID@Xbox has responded to our application. Their answer was "not right now".
We will continue to pursue getting Total Miner on the Xbox One.
After pursuing our initial response from ID@Xbox, they have confirmed our application was incorrectly sorted.
We have since been invited to the developers summit in Seattle. That's about as 'Yes" as it gets for now.
I'm off to Seattle tomorrow to find out what's going on with ID@Xbox.
Back next week.
Total Miner is programmed using the C# programming language.
Microsoft in all their wisdom have decided not to support the C# programming language, so for TM to be released on the Xbox One, the entire game would have to be rewriten in either C++ or Unity3D.
As a result, TM on Xbox One is not a priority.
If everyone could please vote this up: http://goo.gl/BLgEZy
Also harass them on twitter too please ;)
It could help bring TM to Xbox One.
