What's up with this "Project Spark"?

Posted 26 November 2013 - 10:29 AM

What's the skinny on this? Is it like 'Game Studio' or ix this XNA's successor? I am having a hard time digging up info outside of the marketing blitz.

My understanding is that it has more in common with Kodu Game Lab rather than XNA itself. I havent seen anything mentioned about custom coding or scripting.

Well.. what ever it is - it has a beta out now.

Microsoft's 'Project Spark' beta arrives on Windows 8.1, lets you create an Xbox One game

Quote

Microsoft is launching a beta version of Project Spark today, its game-maker project for Windows 8.1, Xbox 360, and the new Xbox One console. Project Spark is essentially a tool to allow developers, enthusiasts, and gamers to build a game within a game. Players can build custom worlds, characters, and animations from an Xbox One or a Windows 8.1 PC to play across both platforms. It's similar in concept to Sony's LittleBigPlanet, but Microsoft is making use of its history with Kodu and pushing SmartGlass integration to allow players to interact with their games and collaborate from a tablet while they build and play on an Xbox One.

An older article with more general info.. so it's like a sandbox.. or second life.. gotcha.
