Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Maker Release News!

Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Maker was voted #5 Indie Game Of 2009 at! Thank you so much to everyone whom has supported us and I think we did really well especially considering the first three winners don't have a release. We had to beat out over 14k projects just to get in the top 100 so thanks so much for everyone's help and maybe next year we'll be ranked even higher :D

Expect a new release of Sandbox in the next few weeks! We're very excited to welcome our new coder team member Graphitemaster whom has created a vehicle mode! I'm also very excited to annouce our new forum moderator Tyche and our forum support team Arcones, Gr1m, Leo_V117, and Venima! Very nice to have these additions to our team and we appreciate their hard work. Hirato has also been hard at work as always and is reworking the RPG mode to much more usable!

Craving more Sandbox news? Well now we have a new Sandbox Blog that will have a feature every Sunday, making Sunday Super Spectacular Sandbox Sunday! Update: We now have a comment system so you can comment on the news and blog!

We could really use someone to help us compile Mac builds. If you are interested please e-mail us and/or stop into our chatroom.

Interested in playing a fun free RPG? Damian over at The Golden Coin has released his .300 with some great features including Save Games!
