Gameglobe, Square Enix’s Game And Creation Platform, Offers Trial Memberships

Last year, Square Enix teamed up with German developer Bigpoint to form Gameglobe, a free-to-play game-cum-platform that will operate directly within your browser. Since then, the game has grown and you can watch a new trailer for it below:



So, why is it a game-cum-platform? Because in addition to being a game, Gameglobe also offers players tools to create and share their own content. The game currently has over 16,000 levels to play, and Square say around 250 new ones are being created everyday.


This week, Square Enix have opened up memberships to Gameglobe, giving access to the creation tools in the game’s catalogue, as well as early access to the multiplayer closed beta. You can sign up for a free membership trial here.

  • I was immediately convinced the moment they said Lara Croft! I’m gonna sign up to that as soon as I can!

      It’s great how she is considered a game genre now.

      I remember when they announced this months ago. It looked awesome and now it looks even better. Kind of like an alternative to LBP, but for PC.

  • Junko Enoshima

    Uh, can someone explain to me what a “game-cum-platform” is?

    • Solomon_Kano

      It’s a game and a game creation platform. Cum (the Latin one) basically means “combined with” from my understanding of the word. I don’t know what the actual translation is, of course, but that’s essentially it.

      • Oh, right. I was so… confused for nearly half a minute there. I didn’t even have time to giggle immaturely like I usually would.

        Thanks for the explanation.

          No prob.
