Here’s a quick rundown of What’s New in Buildbox 3.4.1!

Completely Redesigned Home Screen 

The home screen has been completely redesigned in Buildbox 3.4.1, with a sleeker look and improved navigation options. Along with our new interactive tutorial that guides you through making a game, you’ll notice easier access to all our platform features, including premium templates and a brand new profile system for managing your Buildbox account or contacting support. 

New Profile Management System 

The new profile management system in Buildbox 3.4.1 gives you a comprehensive view of your profile account and ad monetization data from all of your games. Manage your Buildbox subscription with ease, see current ad monetization and recent transactions, revenue share, exports, and more.

Adbox Monetization 

We’ve also added Adbox, our new easy ad monetization solution, so you’ll never have to deal with ad networks again! Adbox allows you to integrate ads into your game and then let Buildbox handle everything else, from ad optimization to payouts. 

You’ll be paid directly from Buildbox via Hyperwallet and receive your earned monthly revenue * approximately 15 days after the end of the month. You can transfer your funds out of your virtual wallet to any account you want.

Explore the Adbox Dashboard

Adbox and shared revenue are included in all plans. Creators on the Free plan receive 30%, those on the Plus plan receive 70%, and Pro users get 90% of all earned Adbox revenue. 

You can learn more about our subscription plans and revenue share options right here.

Auto Backup 

Buildbox 3.4.1 now includes autosave! As you build your game, our new backup system will automatically save your current changes and progress. So, you’ll never have to worry about losing your work again! 

Autoscale FBX/OBJ Model Import

We’ve added an autoscale feature as well. You can now custom scale any FBX or OBJ file directly within Buildbox. Autoscale eliminates the need to switch between software programs like Blender to resize or edit objects or characters for your game.

Buildbox World 

Another great new feature in this latest release is Buildbox World. It’s a totally free mobile app that lets you export directly from Buildbox to your device in seconds — previewing and playing your projects on your mobile device. Test, analyze, and iterate with ease. Get a natural feel of your game without the hassle of exporting and dealing with Xcode or TestFlight. You can download Buildbox World for iOS today. The Android version will follow soon, so stay tuned!
