Fans of Pixowl’s The Sandbox game, and who have been following our site for a bit now, know that there is a sequel on the horizon called The Sandbox 2. Well this sequel has been in the works for some time now, with a closed beta and a very limited soft launch having taken place. Now fans will be able to get the sequel soon as the global launch for this game will be arriving very soon.
For those of you who have missed our previous coverage about this game, The Sandbox Evolution (which is the new official name for it) takes everything that came with the first game and expands on it in pretty much every area. As with a true sandbox style of game, you can still build your little world with interactive elements, do pixel art, make music, and so on with a number of different elements and mechanics. However, in this sequel, there is a lot more of them available.
On top of all of that content, there is a campaign mode for players to work their way through, with each level at the start teaching you how to use different elements, while all of the levels help unlock new items for you to use. If you’re adventurous though, you can now make games within The Sandbox Evolution. To start they look to be mainly platformer style games, but you are only limited to your imagination, so you can always work with what you have and make something else. More mechanics to use to create other types of games will be coming in the future.
Of course everything you make can be shared publicly so other people can check out your creations or play the games you’ve made. This also means you can check out or play other peoples’ creations as well. It total there is over 170 different items and elements at your disposal. The pixel art has always been enhanced in this sequel as well, with much more detail in it.
As for when you can get your hands on The Sandbox Evolution, right now the game is set for a global launch this Thursday, June 23rd, 2016. It will be free to download and play with optional IAPs being available as well. However, all items can be unlocked just by playing the game.
