Make your own online game with Playcraft’s incredible toybox, launching today

Sure, you talk big about making games if you only knew how to code, but would you actually make good on that boast if someone gave you an easy-to-use toolset for just that purpose? Step it up, then, because Playcraft is going live today with a toybox that will allow anyone to make games without programming knowledge.

This early access MMO has been in development for three years by a single developer, Adrien Quay-Thevenon, who now wants the world to join in on the fun. Here’s his elevator pitch: “Control your avatar in real time and build your own online multiplayer game with intuitive tools, no coding required. In Playcraft, we want to show that the game development creation process is a lot of fun, and even better when you create alongside your friends!”

There are a lot of possibilities with this game, especially as it boasts “fully destructible environments, AI characters, spells, and physics.” The developer said that users can make anything from RPGs to platformers to team shooters with Playcraft — and then jump from game world to game world via portals. The developer vows that Playcraft will always be free-to-play with only cosmetic items in the store.

“The developer vows that Playcraft will always be free-to-play with only cosmetic items in the store.”

This guy may be a super stand-up person. He may keep his vow and word in the end, and this isn’t about him as I don’t know him. But with just how many companies vow this and go back on it later, it’s very hard to believe that vow when it is given by anybody.

Sounds like a very similar premise to Raph Koster’s Metaplace.
