We keep adding different races for you to include in the games you make. As of today, The Dwarves will come alive on Adventure Box! With this upgrade you will find new items, equipment, architecture, weapons and armor and more. The update also brings new kinds of worlds to the world creator, since Dwarves tend to live in mountainous, snowy places.
Dwarves are unlocked on level 3, so go and create your own merry band of axe wielding and vertically challenged warriors!

FEEDBACK: This week’s questions and comments
Here’s a couple of q:s we have got from you boxers. We try to answer all questions as they come in, but the questions and answers of the few could be useful to the many. So here goes:
Q: Do you have a real names?

In addition, we have a little network of people helping us who share our vision of making Adventure Box a great platform for making, sharing and playing games. We will introduce ourselves in more detail in upcoming issues of thisnewsletter.
Q: Can you explain Adventure Box for me?
A: Adventure Box is about making and playing games. You first create a world and then you fill it with things and characters. After that, you give your characters dialogue and set up quests for players. You can set triggers to do things like open closed doors to give your players challenges. Then you publish your game and tell your friends about it. By playing other users games you discover new worlds in the Adventure Box universe. When you make games you can link portals to any world you know. And much more. Give it a go and tell us what you think!
We do love your all of your questions, comments and suggestions! Keep em’ coming.
