“Project Spark” is an open-world digital canvas that enables anyone to build, play, and share whatever they can imagine. It’s a powerful, yet simple way to build and play your own worlds, stories and games. Share all of your creations to a dynamic community, and play what the community makes.

“Project Spark” will be available to download for free on Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows 8.










Looking forward to playing around with this!

And another Xbone "exclusive" turns out to be coming to the 360 (and the PC, but we already knew that).

It's intriguing. I wonder if 'arcade' quality games could be made with something like this.

I was very interested in this at the MS conference and my interest seems to be growing the more I see and hear. Genuine despair at some of the comments from people less than a minute into its reveal. Nice to know it's coming to 360 too, as I still don't believe I'll be getting an Xbox One.

Probably. I can see some real masterpieces coming of it; stuff that'll be turned into stand-alone games.

:lol:

I just think that there will be some very talented individuals making stuff using Spark, and some of it is going to take off. Certain very successful PC mods get made into full games, why not turn the most successful Spark projects into XBLA stand-alone titles?

Wasn't everything made in LBP a platformer?

No. There are some interactive movies, and I've seen a blackjack game as well.

But a hell lot of them are platformers. And I would dare say that some of the design work is brilliant.

This seems more flexible than Little Big Planet though. Reminds me of those click and create PC game creators that were all the rage a couple of years back.

Were any of the best creations ever turned into stand-alone products? 'Cause if not, that's a shame.

I used to make stuff in Klik and Play - made a digital pet, a 2d fighter featuring my friends, and I attempted to make a top-down GTA-style Gorkamorka game but never finished it :P
