{Play Vault Preview} Gameglobe – Square Enix’s Browser-Based Sandbox Game

Play Vault's Elliot:

"Descriptions of what Gameglobe does quickly fall back on zeitgeisty buzzwords; browser-based, free-to-play, microtransactions, gamified social media and user-created content! But to really grasp the ambition of what Square Enix and Bigpoint are attempting, or how intuitive Gameglobe‘s vaunted toolkit is you have to see it in motion.

To my eyes (shielded behind jade-tinted spectacles), Gameglobe is one of the very few promising surprises to have emerged from a very quiet E3 – as far as an event based on getting crowds to cheer at beautifully rendered explosions can be quiet."

Really liked the artstyle of the game

Yes, the visuals do seem to be something of a step away from the standard clique that many games have said about them... The 'Shades of Brown and Grey' clique.

its defntly the smoothest looking level-creator i've ever seen, i really like the whole drag and drop approach ... looking forward to its release a lot.

I agree Shug. This was something that was not originally on my radar but the simplicity of this game is refreshing.

Has a Minecraft-esque quality too it.

This looks great! I can't wait.
It's rare I get truly excited about a game these days, with all the generic out there, but this is pretty interesting.

Browser-based games usully suck but Square Enix’s knows how to make a good one.
