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 10, 8 and Windows 8.1. Microsoft initially announced the game during the E3 2013 press event which Redmond attended after quite an absence.
