Make Your Own Game Worlds with Gameglobe
I’ve always been a fan of games that let you build and create. I was that kid who had several buckets of lego, with every brick constantly in use. Currently, I play far too much Minecraft. You can imagine how excited I am, then, about the announcement made today by Square Enix and Bigpoint.
See, they've just released the first details on a platform they’ve termed Gameglobe. Published through a co-operative agreement between the two companies, Gameglobe lets players build their own games from the ground up, and gives them free access to all player-created content. From the looks of it, it seems like it might be a LBP-esque sorta deal…but it’s hard to say at the moment.
“We want Gameglobe to be a community where everyone can get involved in the fun: play new games every day, share your favourites, or flex your creative muscles with your own design.” said Game Director Rune Vendler in the press release.
“We’re very excited by the creativity unleashed between Bigpoint and Square Enix that allows us to bring an entirely new and innovative online gaming experience to players,” continued Jan-Michel Saaksmeier, Bigpoint Executive Producer. “Gameglobe offers fun without limits and a vast selection of free-to-play adventures directly in your browser.”
The game will be distributed through Bigpoint Games in Europe and North America. Those of you who want to sign up for the closed beta, go here.
