Interested in checking out Project Spark? Head over to your local Microsoft Store and snag yourself a beta invite code, allowing you to build and share your own games across Windows 8, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
“At each of our Microsoft Stores, the Project Spark Beta is installed on either the All-in-one PCs or running the big touchscreens in the mall hallway outside of the store for you to get a hands-on experience with Project Spark and what it’s like to create a world on your own! You can also sign-up for a Project Spark workshop at our Microsoft Stores where you’ll sit in the store’s classroom and have an instructor walk you through the basics of “koding” in Project Spark – for free!” Microsoft stated in an official blog post.
Project Spark is currently available as a Beta for Windows 8. Those who are unable to visit a Microsoft Store can visit ProjectSpark.com to request a beta code, which is sent out every week. The fastest way to get your hands on some game developing fun is to actually visit a local Microsoft Store.
Around Spring of 2014, Microsoft will officially launch Project Spark on Windows 8.1, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. With Project Spark, you can create any kind of game you have dreamed of, or even play the games created by people worldwide. “Project Spark provides a deep gameplay experience with the options provided in Crossroads and the ability to download content created by other players. The game offers third-person action games, first-person shooters, 2D side-scrolling adventures, deep role playing adventures – anything players can imagine!” Microsoft explained.Further reading: Microsoft Store, Project Spark
