Session Name:

Project Spark: Enabling and Inspiring the User to Make (Almost) Anything (GDC Next 10)


Project Spark is a new free-to-play creation engine that allows players of all skill levels to make their own games and share them with the world. Project Spark will ship across multiple platforms and support multiple input devices. Come hear some of the ways in which Project Spark encourages players to become creators, using layers of simplicity to ease the learning curve, adding a deceptively powerful visual programming language, and encouraging players to cooperate and specialize in different areas. We'll cover how to design and engineer an experience that not only turns the very act of making a game into a fun game itself, but enables players to create the unexpected. We'll also cover some of the broader challenges with making a sandbox creation framework that supports multiple game genres, pushing the limits of what consumers and developers expect.
