    I love playing game but I am not developer. I decided to make games last year and I don't know coding.
    BB help me a lot on this, and I think this acquired will be good for us. we want more powerful bb :)

    Congratulations Buildbox team :)

    It would be nice as BB customers to have free access to AppOnBoard services :) :p -> even if BB will act "independently" but with more resources from AppOnBoard, now BB is not going to change as much, but I think with this new influence, BB will change and I hope the vision of it - will NOT.

    ;-)

    @TreySmith and @NikRudenko have to be very careful of what control they give away during this acquisition. Even if sounds promising, the wolves in the dark are waiting for the wrong move :p

    Thanks guys! Been dying to tell you all about this as were about to vastly scale the company and improve the software. This deal is going to be great for customers.

    Great news! So the first question - when will we start to see these improvements added to the software? And anything that makes building an app pain free is always welcome! haha

    This is all very exciting and can't wait to see the improvements. Are there any plans on adding new functionality to BB2?

    Hey, what's up Sebastian? Why you need more BB2 improvements for Bitnoid 2? ;-)

    I hope BB3 will finally get out of beta, as this final release does not do it :p

    - Free version of Buildbox
    - Better Android support / Ad Networks support (probably SDK / lib updates)
    - More nodes / smart assets
    - Asset Store
    - Faster updates

    I have the Master Collection 2.0, so I'm anxious to see what expansions they're talking about. I'll just have to have some patience, I guess. Impossible! :p

    Wow. This is exactly what BB needs. Having AppOnBoard teams joining in will greatly increase updates and feats. We always knew that BB was heading in the right direction and that it’s hard to instantly satisfy everyone unless you have more people involved in its development. So this solves that. Awesome. Now what I want to know is I subbed for a year, do I get access to apponboard studio premium feats or is that going to be a separate bill for me? Either way I feel like I did when my wife and I had our first baby. Excited...and nervous. Lol. Not bad nervous but nervous as in “I don’t know what’s to come but I know it’s gonna be epic.”

    Good move @TreySmith and @NikRudenko

    Any news on BB3 supporting ads without coding or implementing third-party mediation methods?

    You must remember that not everyone is interested in working on BB3. You're probably too excited

    @TreySmith

    ApponBoard seems to have a software a bit like Buildbox! Will they drop one of it? It seems a good news but at the same time what will happen with Buildbox short term? Should we wait before getting it? Will ApponBoard merge both softwares? Thing is I don’t want to invest time in a piece of software that will go under major changes… Did it with UDK before they went with UE4 and it’s quite a pain to start over from scratch.

    AppOnboard is big with enterprise. They will keep their product for enterprise, and give tons of resources for Buildbox and the MC software. We will still run independently. It’s going to be amazing. We will FINALLY be able to do everything we wanted.

    Yes!! One of the first things we are doing.

    Core focus is:

    - completely fix stability
    - making ads easier
    - launching free version
    - adding/redoing nodes/assets to be easier
    - documentation
    - make export easier

    That’s the main first steps I’m taking. Then we will focus on console export.
