Buildbox brings UWP support to its codeless game development program

Buildbox, a program that allows you to create games without using code, has added support for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) in its latest update. Essentially, that means that those building a game in Buildbox can now export their creation across Windows 10 platforms and Xbox One.

From Buildbox:

Buildbox 2.1.0 launches today with two major new features: Swipe controls and Windows UWP (Universal Windows Platform) support. With UWP support, Buildbox customers will be able to immediately export to the Windows 10 store on desktop computers, and soon stores on Windows mobile and Xbox one.

To celebrate the release of version 2.1.0, Buildbox and Microsoft have teamed up to offer $500 to Buildbox customers who bring their games to the Windows 10 store.
