Microsoft wants the public to know two things: that its free-to-play game Project Spark is finally out of beta, and that boring decisions could put you at risk of being eaten by a bear. The company's visionary title transforms game making into an accessible, interactive experience. Keys to the Kingdom is an impeccably designed microsite that uses a choose-your-own-adventure format to relay the story of Project Spark's development, and news about its most recent updates.

Currently available for download from the Xbox One and Windows 8.1 stores, Project Spark launches with a bevy of fresh content like an adventure mode, champion features, creation enhancements, and multiplayer functionality. Newcomers can also pick up the $39.99 retail disc, which provides $85 in downloadable content. The package includes an adventure called Champion's Quest: Void Storm, a sci-fi theme pack, a playable champion, a builder's pack expansion, and a month's subscription to Spark Premium.
