MS launches game-maker Kodu on PC

Free beta hopes to attract schools.

The public beta for Microsoft's easy-peasy game-making tool Kodu has been released on PC.

Dubbed the Technical Preview, this is available to anybody for free right now. The hope is that schools and educational facilities will snap this up.

You may remember Kodu being released for a few quid on Xbox Live's Indie Games Channel last year. That's because it was.

Since then improvements have been made, such as the installation of mouse and keyboard support, plus other enhancements too complicated for our brain - they're best read about on the Kodu website.

Give it a blast. Homework/housework/relationship can wait.
