Update February 19th, 2014: As linden Lab have discontinued Creatorverse, links to the application have been removed from this post.
On Wednesday the 14th November, Linden Lab slipped out the news that Creatorverse, their 2D creation / sharing application recently released for the Apple iPad is now available for the Amazon Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD.
The apparently low-key announcement was made via a press release, which appears on the Company’s website, and which reads:
SAN FRANCISCO – November , 2012 – Linden Lab®, the makers of shared creative spaces including Second Life® and PatternsTM, today announced that CreatorverseTM is now available on Amazon for Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD.
Creatorverse is a two-dimensional shared creative space, a digital canvas on which you can build unique creations, set them in motion, and share them with the world to enjoy and remix. You become an inventor as you draw, stretch, shape, and color your creations, and then add joints, forces, motors, teleporters, and inputs that change how your inventions come to life on the screen. You can save your inventions locally or share them to the cloud for other users to enjoy and remix into their own unique creations.
“It’s been gratifying to see the positive response to Creatorverse since we first launched it, like Kotaku calling it one of the coolest things you can do with an iPad,” said Rod Humble, CEO of Linden Lab. “Already, iPad users have made and shared some incredible and fun things with Creatorverse, from games to interactive art, and we’re excited to now bring the app to the Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD. Very soon, we’ll also be releasing Creatorverse for the iPhone and Android so that even more people can enjoy this shared creative space.”
Creatorverse for Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD is available now for $4.99 on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Linden-Lab-Creatorverse/dp/B00A439RGG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352913683&sr=8-1&keywords=creatorverse
Creatorverse is also available for iPad and is available from the App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/creatorverse/id563088306?mt=8 .
Versions of the application for the iPhone and Android platform are reported as “coming soon”.
