Super Mario Maker 2 used to create a 1st-Person Adventure Game

Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch

This is incredible, someone has used the tools provided by the game Mario Maker to create their very own first-person adventure game!

Instead of creating just a simple level, they took it to another level and created 3d Maze House.

Super Mario Maker 2 is a game for the Nintendo Switch where you and other players create custom side-scrolling Mario levels.

3d Maze House flips this on its head so instead of playing a side-scroller, you’re in first-person view.

This makes it like an old school maze adventure and gives you a different perspective.

Destiny 2 headed to Steam and Cross-Save

After withdrawing from their deal with Activision, Bungie is moving from Battle.net to Steam. On August 20th, 2019, you can link your PC Destiny 2 account from Battle.net to Steam.

On October 1st, 2019, Destiny 2 will be available to play on Steam.

Cross-save lets you link all your accounts across platforms. So if you’re playing Destiny 2 on PS4 and then switched to XBox One or switched from PS4 to PC, you will be able to login with the different accounts after they are linked.

The important part to know is that only one account and its guardians will be the active account.

No Man’s Sky – BEYOND

The next expansion for No Man’s Sky, titled “Beyond” has a release date. It will be released on 14 August 2019. The game is available for XBox One, PS4 and for PC through Steam, GOG and Humble bundles.

“Beyond” is a bundle of three major updates.

The game will be more social and the multiplayer will let players meet up and play anywhere.

Where you’re going in No Man’s Sky, you’re going to need this.

Most importantly, you will now have a reason to get VR gear for your gaming rig! No Man’s Sky Beyond introduces VR support to the game and it is stunning.

Twitch is launching Twitch Studio to make streaming even easier

Twitch is launching Twitch Studio to make it easier to create all those cool effects you see when watching streams, such as activity feeds and alerts. This should make it easier for people to stream rather than doing custom setups with OBS.

The idea behind Twitch Studio is that instead of downloading a streaming tool and going through a complex configuration process to set up activity feeds and alerts, you will be able to use Twitch Studio for a one-click experience and start streaming right away with all the cool things that the popular streamers are using.

There are templates for streams which should give those of us who lack graphic design skills a bit of help in making the stream look great.
