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!

This release has so many new features that there is no way I could give it justice in only a few sentences. It has been updated far beyond the 1.2 version in so many ways. Here are the key improvements featured in this version:
- Driveable Carts via kartmode complete with a hovercart model
- New ogre model for 3rd person mode (press 9 to use it!)
- Codebase significantly updated including md5 support!
- New menu (still very much WIP, but features lots of cool stuff!!)
- Many New Maps: Floating Island Castle, House, ParticleShowcase (shows off all the cool particle effects!!), an updated tutorial map and a race track for kartmode!
- Lots of code cleanup thanks to the hard work of Hirato!!
- New higher quality texture set including lava!
- Moving platforms and elevators (featured in the castle map)

This release is mainly thanks to these great guys:
Hirato: Massive contributor to this release through coding, mapping, the new menu, etc. Without him this release wouldn't be nearly as solid and advanced.
Quin: Contributed Cart Code
Geartrooper: Contributed Cart Models
Cube 2 Community: Providing constantly updated source code and various other help and support

This game seems like its picked up a lot of momentum, and hopefully, it will continue to. The kart idea is rather ingenious, and will hopefully attract lots of new players.

Heres to you, Sandbox devs and contributers.
