What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Modbox is a sandbox with a focus on user creation, modding, and multiplayer. We want to give early VR adopters a chance to build, and based on what they create and the feedback they give we can evolve the game before a full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to fully release sometime in 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More options to create with. Our focus right now is on creating more sandbox options - so at the moment no other game modes are planned.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently we have workshop support, a large amount of our own entities and options, and mod support for users to build their own entities to add to their creations.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Modbox will most likely increase in price before release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to open up the game's development and adjust the game based on creations shared and mods created on the Steam workshop.”

Modbox Demo Released

Players can now download the Modbox demo to try all of our featured creations and play online:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/563980/

Which includes the latest Dungeon and Wild West mods/creations:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=805541737
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=810661900

I was planning on this demo giving full access to all player creations - but unfortunately Steam Workshop doesn't allow that right now. A Steam demo can't access a full game's workshop yet, apparently. I am contacting Valve hoping there is a way we can still do that.
So for this demo we took all of the Featured creations off of the workshop and included them in the demo. All of them can be played online. As we update the game with more Featured Creations we will add them to the demo also.

Since our last update we've also updated a few things and changed a few creations:
- Added scoreboards to Battle Bubble, Dune Temple, Reactor Core, Dojo Duel
- Added Stairs in/out of Dungeon Arena, so one team can't get into another teams spawn spot
- Fixed issues with 'On Collision' modifer, and added 'No Breaking' option to physics modifier
- Added Filter By Tag options to goals

thanks,

Modbox Update 7 - Wild West mod, Locomotion options, Gamemodes

Devlog video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWqHxR4MEDw

It has been a while since our last update - We have decided to switch to a biweekly update schedule (with hopefully a dev log with each update) so updates will be smaller and more frequent

The Modbox Demo will be released early next week - it'll be the full game just without editing creations. Demo players can play online and try any mod/creation

New Featured Creations:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=810661900
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=805541737
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=805538707
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=805535941

Largest additions:
- Wild West Mod
- Destructible Objects Mod
- Playmode Locomotion Options - Directional and Touchpad added. What locomotion the creation uses will be displayed on load creation screen.
- New Entity Category: Gamemodes. Adds a 'Team Controller' so creations can be team based gamemodes. Add different kinds of scoreboards that are shown on death and game over (and with the 'scoreboard' menu option). Scoreboards right now are Steam Leaderboards, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Custom Team scoreboard (can wire scores into it).
- When server changes creation that a player doesn't have, it no longer disconnects that player. Player stays on the server and a screen pops up to download the creation.
- Added Avatar Torso options
- New floating HUD with health bar
- 'Respawn' modifier to respawn entities
- Mesh Editing: Can now select faces, and use the Gizmo option for easier placement

New Dungeon Entities:
- Pressure Plate, Spinning Blade, Spike Plate
- Two bows

Other Changes:
- Actions can now set text variables on entities
- Scaling the edit mode labels with the player
- Added 'time string' to timer output, to output the time display. Added no millseconds option
- Slingshot now starts in off-hand (similar to longbow)
- Replaced 'restart' function entity with 'game over'
- Can now set a doors 'locked' bool through wiring
- New sounds: sci fi door open/close, grenades
- Fixed bug with teleport ray colliding with collision entity
- A 'Play Online' option when opening creations

There is a lot of content we've been working on that we've held back for this update - so we still have a lot of new stuff to release in the next few weeks

As for long term plans - multiplayer building and getting the ModboxSDK out is now the focus

thanks!
