Today’s “leaked” screenshots show a different piece of brand new software with some exciting features … Take a close look at the screenshots below for clues:
You can register to join us for our upcoming Special Event, where we’ll unveil all FIVE of these brand new pieces of software from Buildbox right HERE.
Let us know what you think it is in the comments … We bet a few of you might have a decent idea ;)
Downloading Buildbox 2.3.0
Will I have to purchase a separate license for Buildbox 3 when it’s out?
This is totally won’t be fair if that’s case… I am a subscriber to Buildbox and If I don’t get this update I will request to cancel my contract.
“5 new pieces of software” = You better have 5 new credit cards to pay.
Dear trey smith,
I was finding myself from many years that who i am. i like to play games from 17 years . i completed many games on pc and everywhere i find them. one day i watched a video on youtube before 1 year about buildbox make your game easy. when i realise that i am true gamer. i stated to use buildbox. now i know who i am. i am going to leave my govenment job preparation. and want to start game making. I am using BUILDBOX from 5 days. and also i made a platform game. i even didn’t sleep. now i want to buy this software and start my gaming business.

Hey bro ,
I am from india as well.
Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need buildbox.
Hi, i’m indie dev too.
if you’re new to game dev, join this subreddit:
it’s a great community and people will help you to get start.
i know buildbox is a great software with fast development pipeline, but if you don’t afford it, there are other alternatives as well. just join the community of game developers and ask them any question you have.
u should try unity. it free until you make your first 100K or 10K ? unity is not crippled in anyway.
just saying you have alternatives.
thanks everyone to show me the path….
maybe unity is based on coding and i don’t know coding. i am from arts background. but buildbox is so easy….
what i do :-(
The last 2 pics look like Buildbox 3.0 (bb next). Just watch the teaser video they released awhile back and it looks dead on like bb 3 lol. Im so excited to see what in the world they got now. I have a feeling the quality and speed of everyones games for those who buy these softwares is about to skyrocket.
ok I would like to qualify myself to be one of the beta tester. hehe
Script language = hope will have an option Lua.
Can we get any clue on the price
Hmm Looks like Buildbox functionality could improve greatly with these 5 upcoming additions. 3D? I may just bite and get Buildbox then, I hope the price is not going to go up. Buildbox is expensive :(
These will be additional and separate products at additional costs. These are not part of the BuildBox Subscription price.
I see in the second screenshot that one of the tab naming ‘script’. I beleive buildbox is a coding free game engine…
The one thing I have noticed BB is missing is the ability to tap on an object or a spot on the screen and make it a target, either as a checkpoint or a collectible. It would be such a plus to be able to have such point’n’tap thpe of functionality.
Looks great! Clean interface and if this is Buildbox 3.0 , this will be amazing for anyone getting into game development. Keep up the good software engineering!
Everyone gets busy creating games now with this
The BIGGEST problem with Buildbox is how nonaffordable it is. Indie studios typically start off with much less and cannot afford $100 per month, no matter the value. I hope they are some pricing changes.
I agree. It simply isn’t feasible for everyone, especially for Indies.
Especially at time where 99% of the games publish fail to recoup any of thier time and resource investment, let alone make a profit.
Hmmm I have a feeling that Ketchapp has invested in this :) time to start writing down my next prototype game.
BTW will the price break our bones because that is the scarest part?
Looks great, but really hoping there’s an updated pricing model to go along with the new release. With other well established platforms having free/low cost tiers, and shoestring budget indie developers, encouraging adoption of BuildBox seems like a tough sell.
Perhaps they’ll establish a more feasible payment plan?
Watch them name it something like Buildbox 2.3D lol. So happy to see the new scripts and 3d design being implemented as well as a creator system.
Since the appearance of Buildbox, good games are steadily growing in mobile stores. With these upcoming events it will only increase!
I do not know if it’s a good thing or not, it becomes so easy to make games x)
However, good job guys 👍🏽
Will there be any additional fees for customers who already have a subscription to BB? Or will this be an update?
This is what Trey posted yesterday:
“This is a new product, it will not be included in the regular Buildbox subscription.”
the new products means the 4 first leaked software as for bb 3.0 it’s going to be a free update for anyone subscribed to bb monthly or yearly plane it was announced a long time ago so anyone has bb 2.0 will be getting a free update to bb 3.0 as for other software will have their own pricing and that we will see in the event
Perfect! I’m excited to see it in full detail! I have been an owner or subscriber since the beginning. I love this, great job folks!
Will the unveiling event be recorded so it can be viewed later?
wow . ! BB will have developer rush once they release 3D
OMG bring back buildbox trial!
If what I have seen so far in these teases is fully implemented and a true “try it out” evaluation is provided, would give me pause to my unity subscription. 3D and more robust AI along with the easier interface might just snap some real devs to the buildbox arena. Looking forward to trying bb3 out.
This is awesome guys :)
In the night
Can’t you see it
Buildbox 3D is coming
Buildbox 3D is coming…
Ahhh.. the sounds of Buildbox Haiku being created.
@TreySmith sir plz make exporting files to android easier its lot harder i still can not do it after watch so many vedios plz.
@Isher – Wrong place for such a post don’t you think? This isn’t about the article at all. :\
You can email our support team at email@example.com for help.
Coming in 2.3 which releases next week ;)
7 Dec, promise he did :)
I must say, I am liking the kismet style node system. Ive used Unreal before and I absolutely got lost in the kismet world where I just went crazy creative. This will allow developers to make some cool stuff as now we can also code our own scripts too. At least I think.
I wonder if theses are all included inside BB3??
Glad you’re liking what you see so far. :) We’ll share those details during our event.
Most excited for this one. BB3.0
sweet about time to put some custom script to do more advance stuff….Love it!!!
Yes, this will be a ‘game-changer’ for sure!
so are we going to get to test bb 3.0 beta earlier and the release is going to be early and not at the end of 2018 if so a lot of boxers will be happy as waiting to the end of 2018 will make us lose a lot of opportunities as the market is changing constantly
When is the beta out for customers?
We’ll announce the details during our special unveiling event. ;)
I love all these new features and all, but I, personally, cannot wait for you to announce a bit more affordable/reasonable pricing plan…
I agree that all the new features are great. But You hit the nail on the head. The Price! Maybe a 5% or 7% royalty fee would be good.
Yeah what’s keeping me from buying it is the price.
To be honest, I would not expect a royalty fee situation from us for a very long time (if ever). It works for Unreal because they use the platform for AAA games. We are mainly focused on indie.
We have a lot more options coming soon. :) So, definitely tune in for our event.
what that mean?? now it will not be nocoding engine or will have both options?
Both, You will be able to add custom scripts.
Good guess … 😉
It seems we are going to have addictive 3D games soon
Looks like it … 😉
Scripting good which language
This would be a game changer for me. Using Unity at the moment purely because of the lack of 3D and Visual Scripting inside Buildbox. I love Buildbox for its simplicity and ease of use in regards to cross platform native features and rapid prototyping. I just find that it falls short with features that can really make your games unique. This has now changed… When do we get our hands on it..?
That’s great! :) We’ll announce that during our special event. Sign up details and link included in post.
Idk how long I can hold my excitement in😁
Me neither! 😃
Yeahh whoo! This looks impressive!
This is ultra cool. Great features. Cant wait to see the complete version of this software in combo with bb3. Your handwork has sure paid off and has us hooked….. to your software.
Showing it off in detail on Thurs
This looks bloody amazing. I’m super excited to buy this once it launches. Soon I hope. :))))
Are we going to see a full BB3 walk trough in the event and is it going to be held this Friday
I will purchase this one for sure 😍
Wow…. It’s very interesting… I love this buildbox version…
Its Buildbox 3 with full 3d compatable to blow every one away :)

I was the first to tell that the last software would be bb3 check my comment on mystery software 3 i listed there that bb3 would be last mystery software. Now plz bb release it😉
