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!

Make sure you have your video drivers updated. If you still have problems please stop into our chatroom so we can help you! That should be more than enough to run it though a decent video card is important too, especially with updated drivers. Take care!

We have made it clear that it is based on Cube 2. The difference is that our focus is on the game creation while they focus on their game type. Also we have made it kid friendly so that it can be used in schools all over the world! Teachers are already using it including myself!! Take care.

Hmm... 3D adventure games could easily be made with this...

Is there any possibility of making your own models/textures and importing them into the game? If there is I mustve overlooked it.

Hey looks great, seems to be very user friendly!

When you change lanscape sizes below an object it delets the object?

You said when creating a landscape you shouldnt go beonde a certain size. the first demo map in video is enormous, can you explain?

Also, i seen your able to skew the shape/size of objects you place... What type of objects are they?
