The Workshop Update is here!

It took a while but the Workshop update is finally here! What The Box now features a level editor in which you can create and share your own WTB maps!

If you want to know more about how the level editor works, check the Level Editor Guide!



The game was also updated to a newer version of unity, which should fix some old issues and got some bugs were fixed.



It also now shows you how many rooms are available on each region, so you can jump to a region with rooms open right away instead of cycling through regions to check for rooms!

I hope you enjoy this update! A smaller one will come soon fixing a couple of bugs reported with the level editor.

Classic timed deathmatch mode! You have 5 minutes to find and kill as many player boxes as you can, by the end of the match the box with most kills wins!


You only have one bullet and your weapon won't reload. The only way to get more bullets is to kill other players! You can use your box-cutter, but be careful because others can see it! The player with most kills by the end wins.


One of the boxes is the powerful juggerbox! Only the juggerbox can score points by killing the other boxes, but the other boxes must try to kill it to steal its power.​ By the end of the match the box with most points wins!


In this mode, there are special box 'kingdom areas' that spawn at regular intervals in various places on the map. By standing alone in a kingdom area, you will be the king of the boxes, and you will get a point every 3 seconds. If someone else enters the kingdom area, it will become contested and won't give any points until only one box remains in the area. By the end of the match, the box with most points wins!​


Classic timed team deathmatch mode! You and your teammates have 5 minutes to find and kill as many player boxes as possible, by the end of the match the team with most kills wins!


Your team must retrieve the opposing team's packing tape and return it to your team's base! The team that retrieves the most tape by the end of the match wins.​
