Project Spark Creators Giving Live Demo On Twitch Today

Microsoft's Project Spark was one of those games that generated a ton of questions after its E3 reveal. The big one? "What is Project Spark?" We got a demo of the game-creation toolset shortly afterward, and it did clear up some of our initial confusion. And now Team Dakota, the studio behind the game, is ready to stream a deeper look at how it works later today.

Henry Sterchi, Project Spark's creative director, and community manager Mike Lescault will be streaming the live demo on their Twitch TV channel at 6:30 p.m. Central. The pair will be showing off new content, including never-before-seen tools and levels, and the demo will end with a Q&A session.

Tune in this evening to see it all for yourself.

Our Take
Streaming video has the potential of being one of the most powerful tools for developers and publishers. It gives them a chance to reveal new information to fans without losing control of their carefully crafted messages. Of course, there's always the possibility that those same fans will take over once the Q&A portion begins. Either way, we're excited to learn more about what kinds of things are possible with Project Spark.
