It is now official as both are released on their respective store.

From November to March 2013 I was porting the IOS game of the year 2012 Rayman Jungle Run to Windows 8,  Winrt and Windows phone 8

It's a really good game for mobile device with fantastic graphics

I made the Windows 8 layer of Pastagames' framework and a few modifications where added to support Windows phone 8.

I was a bit scared of Directx as an OpenGL developer but both are very similar and everything went smoothly thanks to the modularity of Pastagames' framework.

It was a great experience to work with big company like Ubisoft and Microsoft to integrate xbox live achievement and leaderboard. 

I also met great people like Fabien Delpiano and the whole Pastagames team. Thank you all.
