Buildbox: A No-Code 2D and 3D Game Creation Platform

Buildbox, a game development platform released in January 2015, is a fast and easy development tool to create a mobile game. In just 5 years, hundreds of games have been built using this platform. Some of them have been featured as one of the top games on several platforms such as Apple.

Buildbox has also been featured in the Top 100 hits more than any other drag-and-drop game developer. Recently, they were nominated for Best Game Engine and Best Innovation in the Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards 2020.

What makes Buildbox awesome?

Unlike other development platforms, Buildbox doesn’t need any scripts or codes to create a game. All you need to do is drag and drop images into the software either as a character, object, power-up, or background image. You can then edit the pictures once in it. Every tool needed to design the video game is included in this platform which makes it convenient for the developers. In other words, you are in full control of creating your own game by simply adjusting the built-in features in the game.


What’s even better is that it has a live preview feature where you can instantly see the changes and tweaks you’ve made while in the game. You can also export the game into any platform such as Apple, Android, or Windows.

What’s New with Buildbox?

A few weeks ago, they’ve released some improvements in their platform such as tabs for organizing created/edited work, FBX support, Facebook SDK featuring game analytics, new Alpha Mask Blending options for polishing, ground objects improvement and many more.

Aside from that, they hosted a sports-themed game jam where the winner got a publishing deal with Rogue Games last month. Currently, they are hosting another game jam where the winner can potentially get a publishing deal. The theme this time is Hyper Casual and the submission deadline is on May 10. If you’re interested to join, all you need to do is sign the form.
