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!

Check out this awesome video of our sidescroller mode! One of the biggest features shown off in this video is our new dynamic cameras. They are also adjustable on how much swing you want them to have. Unfortunately when the video was taken the map didn't include powerups, but they will be in the release. Some of the powerups include winged armor, the ability to attract items such as coins, and more! In addition there are flying fish and lavarock projectiles!

An update about our $150 Steam Game Contest which includes the ability to win a copy of the action RPG Divinity 2 is that the deadline has been extended to Monday January 18th at 8pm EST. To read more about how you can win a copy of the awesome game Divinity 2 among other prizes please check out the contest post

Our new release is due out in the next 48 hours. It will include some major updates including a working masterserver and MovieCube which will allow you to script and create your own Machinima movies! The power of MovieCube is that it allows the user assign scripts/commands to models to make execute animations, walk around, etc. It could also be used to create a city live with inhabitants doing their own thing such as going up to the bar and getting drinks and then sitting back down. There are so many great possibilities. Also Sandbox offers the ability to record in game with the /movie command to start and /movie again to stop. A warning though the video is uncompressed. In addition there are lots of bug fixes and polish in this version and the RPG mode has also been updated including Minimaps!

Thank you for your support and have a great day! Take care.
