Some news about Project Spark has surfaced after what seems like a period of silence, giving us details on the beta and an intro video.

The intro is full of whimsy as the Spark flies through several environments before heading off into the cosmos. It's a bit of a preview for all of the stuff you can build in Project Spark, the game that gives you the tools to create and manipulate your own games.

Project Spark will have a heavy focus on multiplayer and community creations, allowing you to share what you've made or even play through someone else's game.

Beta sign-ups can be found here, with links to Project Spark's social media pages. The Beta will be available for Windows 8.1, so look forward to being able to mess around with tiles.
