Game-creation tool releases on the Xbox Live Marketplace

Deemed the Xbox 360’s equivalent to the PlayStation 3 title, LittleBigPlanet, Kodu has released on the Xbox Live Marketplace today. To give the game it’s full title: Kodu Game Lab, the title has been deemed as “a pick-up-and-create toolset where any aspiring game creators can build their own unique world using a simple image-based creator menu that makes game-making easier than ever.”

Originally titled Boku, the game was revealed at Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference hosted in November. The game’s leading programmer, Matthew MacLaurin said: “As a programmer, I wanted to help create something that unlocked the magic of Xbox 360 in the same way that I was able to unlock my computer as a child and bring my imagination to life through games. We had such success with bringing ‘Kodu Game Lab’ into classrooms and after-school programs that we wanted to offer it to any wannabe programmer or creator through the Xbox LIVE Community Games Channel.”

The title is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace under Xbox Live Community Games (soon to be Indie Games) for the very cheap price of 400 Microsoft Points. You can add the title to your transfer queue here. We’ll be sure to have a review in the near future.
