Solaroids: Prologue is coming to Linux thanks to FNA

Posted by , 3 January 2017 at 8:47 pm UTC / 4137 views
The developer of Solaroids: Prologue [Official Site] tweeted out to let everyone know that the indie arcade/action shooter will be coming to Linux. The developer is using FNA for the port and doing it themselves.



If you want to give it a helping hand, you can vote for it on Steam Greenlight.

If FNA is the same as XNA, but works on on all platforms, why would anyone use XNA in the first place? Honest question.

A lot of the time it's games that started with XNA getting updated to use FNA.
