Here is an exclusive for you, Project Spark for XBox and Windows 8 is about to go Live! We caught Microsoft with its hands in the proverbial cookie jar as the adage goes. Microsoft sneaked this App for Windows 8 into the Store yesterday while everyone was in the Black-Friday mood.
As you can see from below screenshot, Microsoft is rolling out Project Spark MX app in the Store, but to prevent everyone from downloading while they are busy, they’ve set the availability to the most remote countries you can think of on planet Earth: KK-KZ. Which means only people in Kota Kinabalu and Kazakhstan can get this app as we speak. Say whaa? Ever heard of Kota Kinabalu? We also not! Even KK is not in the list of top level domains according to Wikipedia
Anyway as you can see below, Description is English, which means you can expect this app to go public anytime.
Project Spark is where players create and creators play.
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.
And here are more screenshots to whet your appetite:
Like MS said above, “Project Spark is where players create and creators play”. This app is from players to players as they’ve promised. Right now the Infra is being taken care of, and we can expect to stat blowing things up in these virtual worlds, to be created by imaginative players amongst us.
Right now, for the rest of us, you can’t see the App in the Store, you can only view it in Web Store at the moment. You can be sure we will bring you the update as soon as the app is generally available.
But if you live in these far-out countries, you can go ahead and download the app right now and give us feedback in the comments. If you can’t wait for MS to make this public, you can also go right ahead and set your country from PC Settings app or the Control Panel’s Language Settings to either of those countries. Then you can see and install the app in the Store.
You may be able to install the app, but you will not be able to use it till you have the BETA Key to unlock the app. Only those who has joined the BETA program of Project Spark will receive the Beta Keys. So if I were you I’ll register now at https://joinprojectspark.com/. while you can.
