Discuss link: Platinum Arts Sandbox Game Maker Featuring In Game Editing, Coop Editing, Crossplatform and Full Network Support - Kickstarter and Steam Projects (SandboxGameMaker.com)
Platinum Arts Sandbox Game Maker is an easy to use Game Maker featuring in game and coop editing based on the Cube 2 Engine. Now Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight Projects have been launched to greatly accelerate and increase the features in the engine. Check out all the features that are going to be added and if we are successful you will be able to create games super quickly even if you aren’t good at coding. Sandbox is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.
My name is Mike and I originally started the Project in 2007 because I wanted the kids in my before and afterschool program (K-5) to be able to create more than just 2D art on the computers, I wanted them to be able to create worlds and stories too! I wanted them to be able to unleash their imaginations and walk around in it. I ended up releasing the project online and it ended up taking off and now is being used worldwide and I’m really excited to say has changed people’s lives in very positive ways and saved at least one child’s life. The project is free and open source and will always have a free and open source version but to help fund the development and new features we want to add we’ve decided to start a Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight Project to help fund a commercial version. The commercial version would be too intensive graphically for schools anyway but I’m hoping to port over a lot of the core features so that everyone can benefit if the commercial version is a success. Thank you for your time.
The open source free version of Platinum Arts Sandbox is available here: http://SandboxGameMaker.com

What benefits does it have against all other 3D game engines?
I have spent some time looking around your site, and I’m sorry to say the screenshots just make it look like a game engine from the PS1.
I don’t know if that is just because nothing decent has been done yet, all effort has been on the tools rather than a good looking game, but it doesn’t look like something I would have any interest in.
Sorry, but I’d rather be honest than say nothing.
