Real-Time Collaborative Game Making: CraftStudio

We first spotted CraftStudio last year – a collaborative game making game, inspired by, but only loosely related to, Minecraft. Players share the tool by which games are designed and created, allowing people to work in teams as they develop, or even collaborate with strangers, creating games in all manner of genres. Blocks are pretty central, the nostrils on the game’s face, but the variation is offers is damned impressive – see below. And now, the beta lives.

The beta starts today, letting people into… well, it’s a lot easier to watch this:

With an emphasis on accessibility, one-man prodigy creator Elisée Maurer explains, wanting people to be able to start making games without any previous experience, or training. And wow, it looks powerful. The online collaboration element really seems like a winner here – I’m looking forward to seeing what games are born of it. Here are a few examples of what already has been:

There’s a restricted trial version available for free, and the full version costs €20 during the beta period (going up to €30 on release).
