January 31, 2016 in Free Game Maker News, Highlight, Make A Game by Mike

D.’s Sandbox Modern City Builder Edition has been released!  D.’s Sandbox is a free open source game inspired by sandbox games such as Terraria, Minecraft and Infiniminer and based on the Minetest engine. This release adds the Modern City Builder subgame so that users can create their own cities. A big thanks to the awesome Minetest developers and Modders for helping make this release possible!

IMPORTANT: The /docsmike folder has links to tutorials for the different mods. Please post any comments or feedback in the forum! I’m very interested in your input and what you like, don’t like, and what you’d like to see added!  These images below are only the tip of the iceberg of what can be created now.  If you create any great screens please feel free to submit them and they may be posted on the site.
