Un outil de conception de jeux vidéos, par la Platinum Arts Sandbox Team.
Il est basé sur le moteur de Sauerbraten (dans le Bottin).

Platinum Arts Sandbox est un outil de conception de jeux vidéos mono et multijoueur en 3D.
Il permet de créer des jeux vidéos, des mondes virtuels, des aventures et quêtes, et même en coopération !
L'objectif est de le rendre accessible aux enfants mais aussi suffisamment puissant pour des projets complets. D'un simple clic et du roulement de la molette de la souris l'utilisateur peut modifier le monde qu'il a conçu de la manière dont qu'il le souhaite.

Description [en]

Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Maker is an open source easy to use standalone 3D Game Maker and 3D Game Design program currently based on the cube 2 engine 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 Margaret, a nine year old Sandbox whiz I babysit for, “Press Edit and go fulfill your dreams!”. Now features new game modes such as Water Gun Wars Game and FPS Creator, sidescroller, kartmode, RPG Maker, and more!
