Microsoft releases Popfly Game
You don’t need super powers to
create your own super heroes.
Today, Microsoft announced the beta
release of the Popfly Game Creator, which will be demonstrated this weekend at
the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle, Washington. Popfly makes game creation easy
and accessible for anyone who can use a computer – not just game developers.
Whether starting from a pre-built template or creating a game from scratch, with
just a few clicks you can select your own game actors, create scenes, and define
the behaviors that bring your game to life. The Popfly Game Creator brings the
rising wave of user generated content to gaming. You can watch a brief video
demo of Popfly Game Creator on
MSN to learn what’s new in the beta release.
Based on customer feedback, several
new features have been added that enable people to participate more fully in the
Popfly community. Features like high score tracking, accomplishment badges, and
Facebook integration make it easy for users to create and share their own games,
and play and modify other people’s games. Anyone can join in on the fun by
adding new friends and becoming a fan of a favorite game.
Game enthusiasts of all stripes have
created a wide variety of games since the initial release. While these projects
span multiple genres, range in complexity, and vary in difficulty, they are all
extraordinary games created by ordinary people. Read more about amazing games
