3.5.5 Update

We just released Buildbox 3.5.5! This new version features an updated in-app purchase system, allowing players to purchase and repurchase consumables. Also, crashes, errors, and restoration of data related to in-app purchases have been fixed.  

Game Data is now synced to the iCloud Keychain for Apple users and Android Backup for Android users, allowing your users to restore purchases and progress when switching to new devices.

In this update, we added the ability to buy templates directly inside Buildbox from other users through the Templates tab. You can submit your templates for sale via the Buildbox Shop portal

We’ve also added a new tools menu option to remove unused keyframe animations.
