'Project Spark' demos Zelda-esque dungeon, cut-scene creation

XMNR: Team Dakota took to Twitch.tv again Friday to showcase more of what can be done in Project Spark, the upcoming game creation game for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows 8 PCs. This includes a little of the Kinect performance plus a dungeon and boss encounter inspired by Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda and an example of how the game's tools can be used to create cut-scenes. (PC, Project Spark, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Man! This is going to put a lot of pressure on those indies who like to sell crappy shovelware. This looks better than most of what they have on sale under Xbox-live-indie.

So if I want better free games, all I need to do is have a copy of PJ sparks and go down load what users made from the cloud, or make my own.

Hopefully it is easy enough where my son and I can create cool games with it.

being able to edit the world and have your name placed as a contributor is pretty cool... I look forward to seeing what can be done by the community... I expect a game with a dick in it within hours

Project Spark is pretty amazing, I don't think these devs are getting enough credit for what they have accomplished here....this looks to be a huge gift to many, many want-to-be-game-creators, animators, hobbyists, un-revealed talented folks who just need a chance/opportunity/platform to show off their talent. lol and for the rest of us just another really cool avenue to create crazy shiii and of course make well you know, like Cueil said.

I agree with JOY. This game is looking amazing and I hope the Xbox community embrace this game. You will see a diverse range of content made by gamers, like on LBP. What people have made on LBP is quite amazing?
Cueil  +   584d ago
why the disagrees... do people feel like I'm underestimating penis game window?

This is the one game I would have to get for the XB1 if I got one. I could mess around with this every single day and never get bored.

To me, this is better than minecraft, at least for what I'm looking for in a game.

If you're tossing up to get an X1 just for this, why not get it for Windows? (assuming you run PC)

They're releasing Project Spark on X1, Windows PC and Xbox 360 for free, though they've said that the X1 version comes with some additional features.

Not trying to talk you out of buying an X1, just making sure you knew about the other options.
B1663r  +   588d ago

Because the X1 is going to get the exclusive Rare add on content.
Deltaohio  +   588d ago

If u get it for windows it must be win 8. As far as I can tell that's only about 8% ish of the market. So that pretty much leaves PJS an exclusive to X1 unless u get surface pro or something.
psych  +   588d ago

I said the X1 version comes with additional features.

From what I understood having read 3-4-5's comment was that they were only interested in the X1 for Project Spark, and I didn't (and still don't) know if they knew it was free and available on other platforms.

I don't see the point of buying a $500 console if you're only interested in a single, free multiplatform game.

Again, I wasn't trying to talk them into or out of buying the X1, just presenting options.



I didn't even think of the market share of Windows 8, that would indeed factor into things, it is also being released on Xbox 360 however.

Nothing that you said changes the FACT that you are a PS4 bully troll who in this circumstance is trolling with faint praise, and trying to shut down discussions about the X1 because your mother never breast fed you and your father sexually abused you.

But Kinect 2.0, and the ability to capture mocap and play it back in your game. There is your reason for both Kinect and the X1, in particular as it relates to Spark.
Studio-YaMi  +   587d ago
If you think that the extra content is the only good factor to hold on to in regards to Xbox1 VS PC then you are delusional.

PC has the edge here,with "MODs",people can make WONDERS with this game.

Even if this game was going to release on PS4 & PC only,I would have chosen PC with a blink of an eye.

You can keep your Xbox1 version.

I am not a PS4 bully troll.

I have never owned a Playstation, PS2 nor PS3.

I own an Xbox, an Xbox 360 and have had my X1 pre-ordered for months.

I am a Strong advocate of the X1 (as you may notice from my comment history)

Every time I commented, I was sincerely offering options, not "faintly praising" Project Spark (which I think is amazing BTW)

You were half right, my mother never breast fed me (I was bottle fed), but my father never sexually abused me.

I can understand that the X1 is under attack constantly by real PS trolls, so you may have assumed that I was one of them, but again, as my comment history shows, you are mistaken.

I hope you check my comment history and realize you just attacked one of your own.

Cool thing about it' it's free ! :) getting it for XO.


It's better on XO definately. With Kinect 2.0.

If anything the Xbox One provides extra features because of the Kinect 2.0.

So with Xbox One you can try your own animations and voice-overs.

I hope they add more complex tools on PC version, but I doubt that since it is a community thing.
showtimefolks  +   588d ago
i really haven't kept track of this game, is this more like LBP series?

looks cool
Grown Folks Talk  +   587d ago
No. It's an expanded version of Kodu on Xbox 360.
THC CELL  +   588d ago
Game looks great but mm are still the pros at create share games, can't wait to see what they have in store for us
_QQ_  +   588d ago
Starcraft 2 actually has much better user created content because the tools are much more complex,I'm a pretty big LBP fan myself but Pspark looks better than LBP imo jsut because its a 3D game,i know that sounds superficial but lets be honest we are all thinking it. I will def pick this up on PC.

Spark also doesn't have the intense douchbag quality that Sack boy has.
HammadTheBeast  +   587d ago
LittleBigPlanet 3 or MM's new game has me intrigued, Spark looks sick as well.



Yeah. That just screams "douchebag".
ElementX  +   587d ago
MM's new game is based on Move tech so I hope you plan on buying a PS4 camera.
GusBricker  +   588d ago
Kinect One looks pretty damn responsive.
logan_izer10  +   588d ago
This is the most intriguing game to me on the Xbox One. Maybe I'll pick one up in a year or so.. We'll see

Easily the most attractive thing on the Xbox One

I see it as the next gen successor of a LBP. MS should have made it X1 exclusive tho lol, I'm probably gonna get it for the PC (since its free and the worlds are available on both platforms)
No_Limit  +   588d ago
You will not have Kinect support on PC so the cool features of the videos like facial and voice animation, and full body animated cut scene are exclusive to XB1. Hey, but MS want to sell as many Windows 8 as XB1, so making it free on both platforms will surely help in doing that.
Godmars290  +   588d ago
If that were true then they would have used a standard plug w/Kinect for PC use.
mhunterjr  +   587d ago
The best thing about this game is that content is shared between the win 8 versions and the Xbox version. You can create something on your pc, then instantly test it on your xbox one. The folks who have both will be the ones who have the best experiences.

You can even create CUTSCENES?!!! OMG, this is the best thing ever for aspiring animation majors like myself! :D
THC CELL  +   588d ago
Earth to mArs you can make movies in lbp, so far watch a mini Ghostbusters,back to the.future, someone in fact made a 90 min.film, also 28days later.
Bzone24  +   588d ago
You are trying your best to shift focus from Project Spark to lbp. Lol. Good luck with your quest.
True_Samurai  +   588d ago
Imma make a cutscene of your desperation of trying to bring up another game lol
B1663r  +   588d ago
He is referring to the ability to record mocap with the Kinect and play it back on the avatar, which you can not do in LBP...
_QQ_  +   587d ago
Traditional animation >3D animation >:)
as an animator myself i have to bring up that arguement whenever possible.
CrossingEden  +   587d ago
I strongly disagree but you're entitled to your opinion.
BallsEye  +   587d ago
If I remember right, the animations can work outside cutscenes as well. Making your own animations/skills for NPCs for example. I might be wrong tho, been a while since I watched that streams. One thing for sure. Me and my wife gonna have a blast creating worlds in this. Coolest thing is that it got multiplayer. Yey! Co-op open world RPG here I come ;];]
No_Limit  +   588d ago
This game totally justify the Kinect 2.0 for me. The ability to add cut scene, facial animation, and dialog will make this a killer app on XB1. The fact that it is free will make it that much better. Loving all these developer test plays on Twitch.
Bigpappy  +   587d ago
Man, this is going to be so much fun listening to these home made actors trying to do voice-overs and mocap. I am laughing now and have seen any of it yet.

I will be even funnier if you know the person. I could see this being a huge hit.

LittleBigWhat??? J/K, LBP is good but this looks awesome.
no_more_heroes  +   587d ago
Given that I'm heading into application development (games apps, that kind of thing), Project Spark is right up my alley as a creativity tool to mess around with. The Kinect features sound awesome too! Definitely gonna have some fun with that!

This and the fact that sometime soon all XB1 will be dev kits is what really makes the console so attractive to me right now.
AceBlazer13  +   587d ago
must say this is the 1 game that i jealous on the xbone
AbortMission  +   587d ago
The sad part is, this game (or project) already craps on the other X1 games/X1 launch lineup Lol. If I were to get an X1, this and Halo 5 would be it. That's about it. Then it's back to the godly PS QUAD!

When you talk next-gen, its games like this that comes to the fore front. Truly impressive stuff. Its MS's exclusive next-gen minecraft...it will be HUGE! putting it on everything is brilliant, W8, 360, The One...means its going to get tons of exposure and being able to start levels on One and pick it up on the train on the tablet...wow.
Software_Lover  +   587d ago
Some more Kinect garbage. It will never be used for anything good.......................... ..../s

Only xb1 title I have no interest in that may change.
