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!

im fine with you moding the cube2 game to make it appeal to more people but the fact that you are not clearly crediting the cube2 game or its creators and seem to be claiming there work for your own is not acceptable

Why don't you try loading up the game before you accuse anybody of anything? Your comments are extremely off base and inappropriate. In addition to our splash screen saying that Sandbox is based off the Cube 2 engine it is mentioned in our menu, readme, license, etc. Many of the cube 2 community works with us, including the main coder. He hangs out in our developer chatroom daily. So before you make such a drastic accusation again I ask that you please get your facts straight and not try to debase other people's work just because you are having a bad day or whatever the illogical reason was. Thanks.

the reason i was raging on you was that under the Engine section you have listed it as "custom build" and not cube 2 and on top of that a lot of your preliminary screen shots seemed to be demonstrating features already implemented in cube 2 in a way that implied you had created them. i had no way of knowing that you were working with the creators of cube which is a relief to me. all i was trying to do was avoid another firearms 2 fiasco
