    Hey Boxers!

    Hope everyone is doing well. I just wanted to share a quick video update on Buildbox 3.0. We are still focusing heavily on Buildbox 2.3 and making sure it’s stable and reliable for you guys, but I thought you might want to see an update on Buildbox 3.0 as well. Have a great weekend everybody! Keep boxing!

    Looks awesome !

    Question: with that many elements in a - as you say - super tiny scene, how does this perform on device? I can't imagine a game with the size of Zelda that won't need 2 minutes to load and doesn't lag. One of the main problem of Buildbox games from version 1 and then worse, version 2 always was the lag and low performance. Does Buildbox 3 handle performance related processes differently?

    Hey Christoph!

    So in Buildbox 2.3 we changed our internal way of dealing with data. We rewrote our storage format. That gives you big performance improvements for loading and memory consumption. In 3.0 we are continuing to work on optimization so I hope you will love what we've got for you. To be honest, I haven't made a LOZ sized game yet, so I can't be super specific, but I spoke with the dev team just now and they said that load time is definitely a factor we are focusing on in Buildbox 3.0. :)

    Thats great news. I really think BB3 is going to be a massive game changer in all factors. Not just in game design but how everything is handled at the backend in Buildbox. Looking forward to the beta in 12 days time :)

    Yeh it’s a shame some not everyone will get to use the beta.

    Also, how will BB3 handle sky boxes?

    Just to be clear. Its only the very first beta that will be limited. All subsequent betas will be open to all subscribers after that.
