Microsoft is shutting down Project Spark; which was started for ‘make your own game'. It will no longer be available for download from from august and online services will be unavailable after 8/12/16.

Project Spark ?
It was similar to Mario Maker and Microsoft. Company presented it as a 'digital canvas', it enables players to create own stories, objects, characters — or you can tweak what had been already created.
Company said in a blog post: Despite this news, we want to celebrate the accomplishments of our team and community of creators and players. Our team released 46 content packs, thousands of assets and 16 updates since launch (averaging more than one update every two months). We produced hundreds of livestreams and videos to educate and celebrate our community. In turn, our passionate fans have then gone above and beyond supporting “Project Spark” by uploading hundreds of thousands of creations and dreaming up millions of objects, behaviors, and experiences. Outside the game, they created fan sites, tutorials, forums, apps, and more! We thank everyone who has played or created anything within “Project Spark,” as it would have never existed without you.

If you’ve purchased and redeemed the “Project Spark Starter Kit” sold in retail outlets will receive a credit to their Microsoft account. If you purchased and redeemed the code inside a retail copy of “Project Spark” after Oct. 5, 2015 and before today, you will receive a credit that can be used to purchase content in the Xbox or Windows store.
