New Book In The Works – How To Be A Superhero

August 22, 2019 in Uncategorized by Mike

BIG NEWS – I’m writing another book! This one is about How To Be A Superhero and it focuses on encouraging kids, (and adults) to find and develop their superpowers. To become a superhero one must train their body and mind, and use it to make the world a better place by helping people and being friendly.

I’m jam packing the book with practical advice that I’ve accumulated from years of research to help people better themselves and the world. I’m really excited about it because I’ve read a bunch of similar books that had high ratings and I think my book has a lot more to offer.

I’m eventually hoping to create a Superhero game where you get to pick your powers. Essentially, a Superhero Sandbox. I’d either use minetest or unreal.

The website and Facebook Page are a bit bare right now but please consider “liking” my page and following my updates! Your support is super appreciated and thank you so much for reading all of this!!

The “Mike’s Happy Place” Project

November 16, 2017 in Free Game Maker News by Mike

I’m currently working on a site called Mike’s Happy Place that aims on providing resources to help people have a brighter life and future. As many of you know the reason I started Sandbox was to help people have a way to create. I believe that creating is an important part of happiness, and I’m hoping to make Sandbox and/or Mage / D.’s Sandbox a part of my work on that site. I will have updates on this but I believe that Sandbox and MAGE can make a huge positive difference in people’s lives. Thank you for your continued support!

How I Greet People – Play Animation For My Students / Kids

March 12, 2017 in Free Game Maker News, Make A Game by Mike

The beginning of D. animations!! I’ll be using Sandbox to create the backgrounds!! 🙂 I’ll be posting small hopefully fun test animations on youtube and I really hope people enjoy them.

I’m messing around with Blender and trying to learn the basics of animation so that I can teach my students. This animation is based on how I wave and point to the kids when I see them so hopefully they get a kick out of it 🙂 I’m hoping to do some D. related fun animations soon as well! I really hope you all like it.

Thank you chagas1983 for the model and rig!

Video Updates for Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Maker and MAGE – Make A Game Experience

November 26, 2016 in Free Game Maker News, Make A Game by Mike

FINALLY a video update of what’s going on with Platinum Arts especially Platinum Arts Sandbox free 3D Game Maker and MAGE aka Make A Game Experience, formerly known as D.’s Sandbox. I hope to do a lot more videos in the future and we have a trailer for MAGE in the works. There are a lot of updates happening at including the release of a beta of MAGE soon, plus resources for coding, modeling, game design, etc. The goal is to turn MAGE not only into an easy way for people to create games, universes, and stories, but to also make it a learning tool so that users can learn the different facets of Game Design and become even better Game Designers.

Please feel free to post your feedback either on youtube or in the forums.
