Project Spark is an exciting upcoming game by Microsoft Studios that lets you create actual games from it. Now, it seems that the app is already available in the Windows Store, as it has leaked
There’s been a lot of fuzz around Project Spark, a “game maker” video game for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft announce the game during the E3 2013 press event which Redmond attended after quite an absence.
Basically, Project Spark is a “digital canvas which can be used to make games, movies and other experiences”. But now, thanks to leak, it seems that the app has already been included in the Windows Store. Here’s a part of the description:
The ultimate interactive playground for gamers of all ages, delivered as a free digital download with many options for enhancing your creative experience, it’s a place where you can walk in the world’s collective imagination and start playing. See how a creator did what they did, and when you’re ready, become a creator yourself. Project Spark is 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 brings creation to life and presents endless opportunities for play.
The Project Spark Beta is a preview of the final game, which is scheduled for launch in Spring 2014 on Windows 8.1, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. For a limited time, the door is open for you to make the kinds of games you’ve always dreamed of, play the games created by a global community, and shape the future experience for Project Spark. We want you to identify the limits of what Project Spark Beta is capable of so we can push past them.
However, the recommended specs aren’t that entry-level:
- Core i7 CPU
- Nvidia GT640M or AMD HD8850M or better
- 8GB RAM
- 2GB hard drive space
- Core i5 CPU
- Intel HD4000 video card
- 4GB RAM
The link to the app in the Windows Store can be found below, but it seems to point to a page for users from Kazakhstan, albeit the description is in English. Probably Microsoft is going to release the app to the public quite soon, but you can get it sooner if you change your country. Also, you will need an invitation code that you can get from the official page of Project Spark.
