Mike writes "Platinum Arts Sandbox is the sandbox game that is easy enough for kids to use but fun for everyone! Your imagination is the limit as far as worlds you can create. Kids and adults alike are finding sandbox a fun and easy tool to make worlds quickly and easily in real time! Download it at The project is to remain open source and free so that developers and kids can help add new content and features to help make Platinum Arts Sandbox the most fun and easy world creation tool possible. Platinum Arts Sandbox is easy enough for kids to use but also powerful enough for full game projects. Main Feature List: — The ability to map edit in game in real time and cooperatively with other people. — The ability to immediately play with and interact with map editing changes — Several custom maps that will feature slides, jumping levels, mazes, amusement park rides, etc — The pursuit of making it as easy as possible to add map features and content. Also the addition of new entities to add even more features and capabilities. — Windows, Linux, and Mac compatable Upcoming Features, a list I hope and want to have in: — A tutorial video — Audio tutorials — Vehicles — New models — A way to scroll through the models much like how you can already scroll through the textures and easily add new models such as trees, plants, and other objects — New maps — New entities. I really want to create a "move" entity so players can make movable platforms, roller coasters, etc. — Any other features I can think of to make the creation process as easy as possible. Thanks for checking out Platinum Arts Sandbox. I hope you enjoy it! Take care. -mike"
