If you’ve ever wanted to create your own game without all the stress and real-life issues that an actual game developer would go through, Microsoft Studios and Team Dakota‘s make-a-game-game Project Spark has been in beta for the Xbox One and Windows 8.1 devices for a while now.
Confirmed earlier today in a Polygon article, Project Spark will enter the retail space on October 7th in North America for $39.99, Asia on October 9th, and Europe the next day on October 10th.
Dubbed the Project Spark Starter Pack, this starting point will give players access to the sci-fi pack “Galaxies: First Contact”, “Champions Quest: Void Storm”, the character Sir Haakan “Hawk” the Knight, and the first episode in an “epic campaign adventure” the developers have planned for the game.
If you haven’t checked it out yet, the Project Spark beta is still available to download on Xbox One, and will most likely remain available until we get closer to the October release date.
If you’ve played around with the beta, what are your thoughts on Microsoft‘s answer to Sony‘s Little Big Planet? Will you be picking up the starter pack upon its release?
