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!

Now to show you all of the cool stuff we've been working on!  I want to start off with what everyone has been waiting for, lots of Multi-player updates!  First I'm excited to announce that a master server is in the works so that hosting your own servers and finding other people servers will now become a lot easier!  Along with coop editing, we are introducing some awesome new multi-player game modes for you such as the already popular Banana relay team capture mode, CTF, and hopefully sometime this year, Water Wars!!  Water Wars will feature squirt gun and high powered water balloon action, with rocket balloon launchers, balloon-nade launchers, etc!

Tired of being alone in your Multi-player Servers?  Thanks to Quin of the Cube 2 community, now Sandbox has bots!  They can be added with the /addbot command and you can set their intelligence level with 101 being super genius!  In addition you can set waypoints for them and watch them take on obstacle courses and crazy paths.  Check it out in action here!

Man, this is better than I expected! At first, I thought this game maker was just some kiddie game, but now that I take a second look at it, it's really not that bad! I have to say, Platinum Arts, that you've exceeded my expectations. Good job!
