Gaming enthusiasts are in for a big treat. You can now create your own 3D games by playing a video game without worrying about coding. Google’s Game Builder, a user-friendly tool, allows PC and mac users to create 3D games by selecting a series of cards, the tech giant announced in a blog post on Thursday.
How to build a game on Google Game Builder
The game allows players to drag and drop characters and scenes into a vacant ‘sandbox’ to build their world and make things interact using preset commands. The tool is available for free on PC and Mac.
Play the game with your friends while building it
Google’s games can also be played with others, making it a collaborative effort. Players not only have the option to invite friends to help them build the game, but can also play with them while building the game.
Gamers can also add creative options within the game by making use of 3D models from Google Poly, a website that lets players share and access 3D creations. The game originates from Area 120, which is Google’s incubator for experimental projects.
The Game Builder is similar to how Minecraft works so a user who is familiar with playing the game, will find it easier to build one’s own game. To note, Game Builder earned a ‘Very Positive’ rating on Steam and seeing the reviews, the game seems fun and a good starting point for people who are trying their hand at creating a game for the very first time without any prior experience.
Google Game Builder has been available via Steam since November 2018, but Google chose to publicise it only this week. However, the tech major is yet to reveal its plans as to Game Builder will transform from prototype to a finished product.
