Kodu Game-Creation Tool for Kids Adapted for the PC

Kodu, a game that helps youngsters learn how to program so they can create their own video games to play and share, is now available on the PC.

REDMOND, Wash. – Jan. 12, 2010 – Microsoft is pushing to bring computer programming back into the classroom – and back into the realm of the imagination.

That push comes through Kodu, a game developed by Microsoft Research that invites users to create their own worlds while teaching them the basics of game development. Originally designed as a learning tool for youngsters using Xbox 360, Kodu is now available in a public beta for the PC. The move to the PC platform stands to make the game more attractive to schools. By eliminating the need for controllers, schools don’t need any special equipment – students can start building worlds with just a PC and a keyboard.

The one question I know some will be asking is whether or not this will run on XP or Vista as well as 7. The installer came up with a "service pack not new enough" type message for the XP SP2 install where I'm throwing the SP3 on the Virtual Box install there.

You won't find any system requirements indicated on any of the MS pages which is why this is being looked into here. This is simply to see if it will install let alone run on XP being on a VM.

So much for XP with SP3 on!
