Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games now available for download

Microsoft has released Windows Azure Toolkit for Social Games (PREVIEW)! The toolkit can be downloaded from Codeplex.com.

The toolkit allows you to quickly get started building new social games in Windows Azure. It includes accelerators, libraries, developer tools, and samples. It also has specific services and code to handle capabilities unique to games, such as storing user profiles, maintaining leader boards, in-app purchasing, etc.

The toolkit also provides samples and guidance for other scenarios, such as using Facebook credits to monetize a game.

In addition to releasing the toolkit, Microsoft have also teamed with industry innovator Grant Skinner and his team at gskinner.com to create a game called Tankster.
