More About The Sandbox

The Sandbox is a collection of user-created gaming and social experiences consisting of plots of varying sizes made of voxel-based blocks. Landowners build and customize their own experiences with block editing, hand-crafted assets, and a built-in scripting language. These virtual lands become adventures, virtual shops — whatever their owners imagine and build!

The Sandbox is currently in Alpha Season 3, offering players a chance to win prizes by playing various games and completing quests. With dozens of experiences available, there is plenty of content for eager gamers to explore!

For those interested in creating games or game assets, The Sandbox provides free tools for that. Using VoxEdit, creators build voxel-based objects for use in-game. Additionally, with the Game Maker users can create all sorts of interactive experiences.
