Our competition ends tonight!
This month’s maker competition at Adventure Box is coming to an end at midnight CET today. Who will win those gems? Well, we’ll know by the morning. Check us out on Faceebook, Twitter and Instagram during the weekend to see who takes home those 250 gems! If you didn’t win, just remember that we will run the competition during next month as well. So, you got until to the end of April to climb to the top of the leader board.
NEW: Have you tried multiplayer mode yet?
We run a beta test of multiplayer mode on Adventure Box, and you are invited. You can join or make a public game, so that anyone can play with you, or a private one, in which other players need an invitation from you to be able to join. Once you’re in a multi-player game there are buttons to invite your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and e-mail. There is also the option to just copy a direct link into the game and send it over messaging apps like Skype, Snapchat, Whatsapp and so on. Here’s what you do: Just hit Esc on your keyboard to get your cursor back, go to the bottom of the screen and choose how you want to send out your invites.
Remember, this is an early beta test, so please bare with us if you experience any glitches in the game. As always, we really appreciate any bug reports, suggestions and comments you care to send our way. Thanks ever so much for the help we have gotten so far. Try the multiplayer beta here!

Time for a little throwback fridayness. This how our game creator looked more than a year ago. While it does have its charms, it looks a lot nicer today, we think, and we hope you do, too.
Here’s a couple of questions we got from you Adventure boxers the past week. We try to answer all questions as they come in. Since the questions and answers of the few could be useful to the many, here goes:
Q: I can’t seem to get a hang on publishing my game. How do I do it?
A: Go into the world editor. Click the “Game” menu item. Click “Publish”. The system may prompt you to complete different tasks. Press “Publish My Game”. If you had to complete some tasks, you may have to re-enter the Game =>Publish menu item to see the button.
Q: How can I add a character to my game?
A: Thanks for asking! Our CEO. Chris, has posted a great step-by-step instruction regarding this, with screenshots and the works, on our blog. You can read it here.
