Last year, Microsoft launched Kodu, a picture-based programming language, on the Xbox 360. It was such a simple programming language that the company made me a game on it in 10 minutes. Now, that platform has come to PCs.
Microsoft have been getting into user-created gaming in a big way of late. First Xbox LIVE Community Games, then Kodu. Which means they have little use for their original games creator, Popfly.
Microsoft's picture-based 3D game programing tool was launched yesterday. Tell the world what you're making.
Microsoft's "Kodu Game Lab" - often labelled the "LittleBigPlanet of the Xbox 360" - is now available for download via Xbox Live Community Games.
Despite it's simple appearance, it's clear Microsoft are dipping their toes in the LittleBigPlanet sea with Kodu. While the game was a no-show at E3, it'll be a show-show on 360s later this month.
Remember last year, we brought word of "Buko", an XNA title that Microsoft were quietly showing off which sounded suspiciously like LittleBigPlanet? Well it's not quiet anymore, they just showed it during the CES keynote.
