In 10 Minutes, Microsoft Made Me An Xbox 360 Game

Stephen Totilo from MTV Multiplayer writes:

"The person who made a game for me in 10 minutes on Monday was Matt MacLaurin at Microsoft. He's the man in charge of Kodu, a piece of development software designed to enable kids to make games for the Xbox 360. Kodu replaces the need to write lines of code with the opportunity to write what look like rebuses - picture-based sentences - to engineer simple games using pre-set 3D characters. It's all orchestrated by the Xbox 360 controller.

I told MacLaurin that I had thought of a game mechanic a few months ago that I didn't think I'd seen in any games. I had no interest in quitting my job as a reporter to make it, but I wondered if Kodu would enable me to see if it's fun."

Why? What did the guy do?

....oh wait too late don't care

This is exciting stuff.

While lacking an art style like LBP, I'm very much hoping that this kind of perspective leads to larger things, like more expansive gameplay and such. Hopefully MS can include a massive variety of tools that effect everything, right down to the physics and changing the landscape, etc.

Can't wait =]

just another platform, rpg , fighter that we seen a lot of them in pc. this one has this gen graphic. nothing so special about it. But it does give xbox 360 player a taste of their own LBP.

Why dis3370d ago (Edited 3370d ago )

So you are saying its no LBP then? lol.

One is 2D and the other 3D lol.

XxZxX3370d ago

so to inform u why dis, LBP has X axis, Y axis and Z axis.
so when u have x y z, which is it. 2D or 3D.

The fact that both of you are comparing Kodu and LBP shows that neither of you know what you're talking about.

It has the potential to be great...It also has potential to fail miserably.

I think it will largely hinge on the ability to share levels and games, because if an enthusiast creates a wonderful level, but no one can download it, then its unlikely he will make another.

explains why xbox has shovelware...

I'm glad MS is also taking the user-generated content train. We'll see some real clever things here, I'm sure. I wish they release it for PC, I don't have Xbox360..
