"ManiaPlanet" is a platform that supports video games. Specifically, it's a "user-powered PC gaming zone" (according to
Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot) for TrackMania 2
(beta coming Q4 2010) and additional "Mania
" games, including the previously announced FPS ShootMania
(beta Q1 2011) and RPG QuestMania
before them, the new Mania
titles from Nadeo will emphasize player-created content. Presumably, ManiaPlanet connects the content and creation systems across all Mania
games in one convenient application. Imagine that.
