Nintendo's Game Builder Garage has finally released, making it possible for players to easily create their very own video games. Unfortunately, the game doesn't allow you to simply browse other people's projects like Super Mario Maker 2 does. However, if you know someone's Game Builder Garage ID or Programmer ID, you can play their creation. So whether you're looking for something fun to play or for inspiration for your own creations, here are the best Game Builder Garage creations we've seen. Of course, we've included an ID code whenever possible.

Game Builder Garage isn't a very big game as it only takes 1.0 GB, but still, it's a good idea to have a good-sized microSD card if you're going to be playing any Nintendo Switch games.
