Building Apps for Windows recently caught up with the makers of the 1.5 million downloads-strong “Xtreme Joyride” game – Onome Igharoro, co-founder of Toronto-based Sterling Games Inc., and his partner, Steve Fernandes – to talk about how and why the company is porting its games to Windows 8.1.

“The Windows 8.1 release marks a huge turning point in the history of Windows development,” they told the blog. “Windows 8.1’s universal apps and converged platform make development easier and faster, and it opens up both Windows marketplaces to us. We can easily use features such as persistent data saving or single sign-in across multiple devices, and create a better and more engaging user experience across different form factors.”

Head over to Building Apps for Windows to read the rest of their interview and how “developing for and publishing on Windows Phone has been a lot simpler and faster than it is for other platforms.”
