In honor of the upcoming release of Buildbox 3, 8Cell Productions presents ‘Vision of Buildbox.’ This cool mini-documentary with Buildbox founder, Trey Smith, and CTO Nik Rudenko tells the incredible story of the company, the vision behind the software, and it’s role as a pioneer in the #NoCode movement.
Explore the roadmap to Buildbox 3 with this inside look at the software, the future of game development, and more:
Vision of Buildbox Documentary
“With Buildbox we had a much bigger vision from the beginning. We wanted to create software that was totally limitless and allow anyone to create a video game, and any type of game that they wanted.” – Trey Smith
In the short feature, Trey shares his vision for Buildbox and how not only game developers but anyone with an idea can make amazing games without experience or coding skills.
The roadmap to Buildbox 3 has been in the making since the very beginning. It was Trey and Nik’s original vision for the software — limitless gameplay possibilities with zero to low code requirements.
Nik came up with the idea of creating games using mindmap bubbles called nodes. With his background in professional game development, 3D modeling, and animation, he had a lot of experience using software with node systems. And he noticed how complicated other platforms made it.
Usually, to create decent results when working with nodes, you’d combine 20-30 nodes together creating a huge massive network. It’s both time-consuming and a lot of hard work.
So, he envisioned a new way of working with nodes that simplifies the entire process.
In the film, Nik explains his concept behind Buildbox 3, and it’s unique node system.
“What we came up with Buildbox 3 was to make those nodes do more things, they’re more high level, and that means you need less nodes to create a more rich experience.” – Nik Rudenko
Buildbox 3 is an advanced 3D game engine. It uses user-friendly smart assets and presets to make professional 3D games easily, but it doesn’t stop there. The software also features low code options for creating custom games using nodes and scripting. It’s a combination of the best of both worlds that opens up game development for everyone from non-coders to coders.
We’re very excited about the upcoming release of Buildbox 3! More details in the coming days. 😉
