If you had an open canvas to create basically anything and bring it to life, what would you do with it? That's essentially the question asked by Creatorverse, a new app that lets you do just that. It's actually a little difficult to explain; thankfully, Linden Research - yes, the same Linden Research behind Second Life - made a video that explains it pretty clearly.

So, with Creatorverse, you make things that do things. Then you share those things with everyone else, who can, in turn, make your things do more things. It's such a simple idea that can potentially result in some pretty amazing creations.

Creatorverse will set you back $5 in the Store - hit the widget and make some stuff.

    Isn't 5$ a Lil steep?

    • Sebastian Mauer

      nope...remember you are probably playing on a >400$ device with a >20$ subscription and this is a piece of work more than one person has probably worked for way more than one month.

        you may not think it's steep but it doesn't mean others aren't allowed to feel it's steep.

        Allow me to provide an analogy to show why your comment isn't relevant:

        "Isn't $20 a little steep for a chicken sandwich at Generic Fast Food PlaceĀ®?"

        "Well, remember, you're driving a $7000 car to get there and wearing $200 clothes, so no, $20 is reasonable."

        The cost of the device and data plan isn't relevant to the cost of an app. It's comparing apples to oranges and means nothing. Yes, $5 is steep for an app because it's a lot more than most games, especially considering that a huge number of the apps on the Android store are free or have a free version.

        Also, please note that I'm not saying that the dev is wrong to charge $5. I'm sure they've worked very hard on this app. Just keep in mind that economics applies to games as to anything else. If you charge more, then there will be a smaller number of people who will buy the product. It's simple supply and demand.

          The problem I have with your analogy is the chicken sandwich is not designed
          to work solely with cars costing x amount of thousands of dollars, apps
          are designed to work with these high end electronics notice the video
          says ipad.

          My counter analogy is boats, RV's ATVs ect. Everything to do with them is more expensive
          because they know they are making a product to pair specifically to
          something that requires another product of a certain price point.
          Meaning you price your service in relationship to products yours pairs
          with.

          That said $5 for this while I feel is fair is more then I as a consumer would want to pay

            I want to see these two go at it. They are good at this analogy thing :)

      Go back to playing your "free" games with adverts and in-game purchases. $5 is CHEAP when you consider the work that goes into coding the applications.

      • KingRando

        This mentality is bad. Look back before the smartphone days and before the app days. Remember downloading applications on your Windows PC to help you do things? Typically for free?

        • superstepa

          Supporting people for hard work they do is bad mentality?

    • KingRando

      Yes. I actually don't even buy $1 apps unless they provide core functionality such as a keyboard or widget (tasker).
