Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Maker is a free open source 3D Game Maker, world creator and 3D Game Design program currently being used in many schools throughout the world that allows kids and adults to create their own video games, worlds, levels, adventures and quests, even cooperatively! The goal is to make it accessible to kids but also powerful enough for full game projects. With a simple click and roll of a mouse wheel users can modify the world however they want. In the words of a nine year old Sandbox whiz I babysit for, “Press Edit and go fulfill your dreams!”. Now features new game modes such as sidescroller, machinima, kartmode, RPG, and more!
A year in review, 2008 may be done and dusted but the ModDB Crew still need to get in one last word. Grab a coffee this might take a while!

2008 a year in review... Some new faces on the ModDB Staff helped to kick up a media storm, with Ryan and I taking over the editorial side of things leaving Scott and Mark to work behind the scenes. Both have done amazing things for the site including launching a new forum, detailed statistics, new video/audio/image support, HD and Levelling with many more secret projects being worked on as we speak. With a focus on the things that matter (mods) the staff were able to come up with some amazing content and features like the Spotlight, Developer Banter, Reviews, Previews, Interviews and even the Modcast and all of its experiments (MCL) throughout the year to help put the focus back on the teams that make the epic mods you all hold so close to your hearts. The year of Mod and Indie love is now over but we still keep the lessons we learned and the memories we made *sobs quietly*. So as a celebration of everything listed above here is the last Modcast of 2008, a 2 hour episode chocked full of puns, plugs, news and jokes that isn't suitable for mums to listen to. Enjoy my fellow modders and we will see you all next year!
