I would like to try to create some Windows educational software like "Reader Rabbit", "Math Blaster", etc. Those software titles don't look like regular Windows applicatoins so I am wondering what they were created with. Does anyone know what software development tools are needed to create those kinds of educational applications?
I am wondering if they were created with Microsofts XNA tools but I am not sure. I wonder if mayber there are some special multimedia kits that were used for those products that made the development easy. I am familiar with Visual Basic .NET, C#, and C++ under Visual Studio 2005 so any special development kits that fit with those would be preferred. Any information is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
