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 Margaret, a nine year old Sandbox whiz I babysit for, “Press Edit and go fulfill your dreams!”.

We have a new patch for our popular Save The Princess maps! Please go to our download page and then extract these files into your /packages/base folder and replace the existing files! This should fix some bugs that were making the maps not act how they should :) As a note the maps have been considered quite challenging!! Do you have what it takes to save the most beautiful princess in the world?

Also we have recently been nominated as one of the top 100 game/mod projects! Please consider voting for us again! The more reputation we are able to get the more kids, and adults, we can get this project to! Please see the top of our moddb profile for instructions.

In addition we have recently been featured at a Linux Conference in Australia! Miniconf was an awesome experience because I was able to give the talk over Skype to our folk from down under! For more information about the the conference here is a listing of the presentations. Here is a picture of our happy audience enjoying me babbling!!!!

Presentation at MiniConf in Sydney Australia


If you are unfamiliar with Sandbox be sure to check out our tutorial video!! I'm quite amazed actually at how many messages I get a day regarding Sandbox because of the video :)


Thank you everyone for your interest and support of Sandbox! I am still going crazy in excitement that we made it into the top 100!! Thank you so much everyone who voted!!!! Take care.

Yeah I'm really surprised and happy!! I'm hoping this will help schools and parents take the software more seriously now so that it can get to more kids. Also hopefully it help get more developers so we can work on improving it and make it more awesome :) It is epic indeed. When I heard that we made it I was running around my apartment going crazy!! Hopefully we can make it into the top 10 but if not I'm still really proud of how far things have come and so happy that other people are supporting and enjoying it. Take care!

This game does look awesome only issue why i don't wanna download is it's for kids maybe release a advanced one later for older generation would be cool and get you guys more on a wider scale.

Its for kids and adults. You can easily make an FPS and an adult rpg off of it. I'm already working on the code for an adult rpg already and it is easy to add in the FPS code. Take care.
