Build your own PC from scratch in Nova Scotia, starting with the basics.
The province announced plans to launch its first online building games service in 2017.
Nova Scotia Building Games, launched on the province’s social media site Monday, will allow users to build their own PCs and add games to their collections on the website.
The service, which will include online multiplayer, will also include access to online multiplayer for the province.NPCs can be built from scratch, but users must create an account and purchase the necessary parts and equipment.
Building games requires a PC with an Intel Core i5 or AMD FX-9590 or better processor and DirectX 12 compatible graphics card, along with the right computer and software.
Players can start by building a new home and add to their collection of furniture and other furnishings.
They can also add new games to a collection by sharing them on social media or creating a video-sharing account.
Nancy Nami, a realtor and developer, says the online multiplayer is the ideal way to play games that are currently only available online.
“This is the perfect way to explore a lot of different genres,” she said.
“You can have a great time playing some of these games that we have available, or just try to play something you don’t have access to, and it’s kind of a fun way to go.”
Nami is excited about the potential of online multiplayer gaming for the country, but says it’s important to keep in mind that Nova Scotia’s PCs are still quite basic.
“The PC gaming community has always been very small and very focused on the game, but we’ve got some of the best games that the country has to offer right now,” she explained.
Nami hopes the online service will become a more common way to learn about building and building building.
“I think it’s just a great way to get people interested in the process, because they don’t know how to build a computer before,” she added.
