I take it you had a look at Unity?
And any games made with Unity therefore rely on Mono, the last example I've
heard about being that lego Star Wars game

By the way, it's nice to push Mono in companies (I've done so too), but in
order to avoid taking risks and getting into unexpected situations, it may
be wise to first propose to try it with a little project, so you and your
colleagues can first get used to it, better understand its limitations, and
so on... Just to be on the safe side, especially if your colleagues are
reluctant. I don't know how big the project you mentioned is, though.
