MLEM Library for Extending MonoGame and FNA is a set of multipurpose libraries for the game frameworks MonoGame and FNA that provides abstractions, quality of life improvements and additional features like an extensive ui system and easy input handling.

MLEM is platform-agnostic and multi-targets .NET Standard 2.0, .NET 6.0 and .NET Framework 4.5.2, which makes it compatible with MonoGame and FNA on Desktop, mobile devices and consoles.

What next?


  • MLEM is the base package, which provides various small addons and abstractions for MonoGame and FNA, including a text formatting system and simple input handling
  • MLEM.Ui provides a mouse, keyboard, gamepad and touch ready Ui system that features automatic anchoring, sizing and several ready-to-use element types
  • MLEM.Extended ties in with MonoGame.Extended and other MonoGame and FNA libraries
  • MLEM.Data provides simple loading and processing of textures and other data, including the ability to load non-XNB content files easily
  • MLEM.Startup combines MLEM with some other useful libraries into a quick Game startup class
  • MLEM.Templates contains cross-platform project templates
