kick it on 

True to form LetsKillDave had the BIG news first!


You can read about and get Game Studio Express Beta 2 from this page.

Here’s the direct download link for the impatient.  ;)

Download Game Studio Express (beta 2)


In other good news I see the page also has a download for the XNA framework redistributable. This is what people will need in order to play our games.  At last, they won’t be forced to install the whole development suite just to play the game!!!

Download the XNA Framework (beta 2) Redistributable

Mitch Walker of the XNA Team has posted more details on the changes between Beta 1 and Beta 2.  Check it out here.

So much to do – so little time.

    It could be the capital letters… it could be the three exclamation marks… either way it seems you’re excited :)

    Does this include the content pipeline you wanted? :)

    Time to start doing one click deployments with automatic updates of your build too btw, then you can put a link it to the redist. for folks who you detect don’t have it :) Will help ‘hook’ those people who like your game.

    Keep up the good work.

    Yeah man, the Content Pipeline IS included.

    Yeah, some kind of installer/one-click deployment would be the bizness!
