Microsoft’s Minecraft: Project Spark Beta is Here

Microsoft has released a new “visual programming language” focused on user designed and shared video games. Project Spark is now available in Beta for Windows 8.1.

My children play Minecraft – this seems like Microsoft’s Minecraft platform but with much better graphics, pseudo programming concepts and the ability to share levels through an online community. In a bid to help cross-promote their eco-system of platforms (Windows, XBOX 360, XBOX One, Surface) you will be able to create video games and play them using any of these devices. Depending on the device you are using, the controller can be your mouse and keyboard, controller or touch.

There is an hour demo of how video games can be created in Project Spark from the Microsoft team.

Very cool…
