  • Universe Sandbox

Universe Sandbox ² is a physics-based space simulator that gives you control over the universe and everything that you can find in it. Experience the rush of being able to destroy and create anything on the largest scale possible as you shape the universe in any way you see fit. The game was developed and published by Giant Army on August 24th, 2015.

Universe Sandbox ² is a space simulator that features everything from real-time gravity, climate, collision, and material interactions so that you can understand the laws of our universe more and also see just how everything works. The game has support for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift +Touch, and Windows Mixed Reality so that you can experience the surreal gameplay of this title in virtual reality. If you're looking for a game that lets you crash one planet into another, you've found it. Thanks to using Newtonian mechanics, the game can use N-body simulation at any speed, so you can do doomsday scenarios and crash all kinds of objects into Earth and see the results. If that isn't exciting enough for you, you can also make entire stars collide and see what the devastating result from that would be.

But, Universe Sandbox ² is about destruction and creation. Create your own star system, populate it with a sun, maybe some planets, a couple of moons, comets, and put a black hole in there just for the hell of it. Model the climate of planets, move them closer to a sun to see what will happen, then move them away and see how fast the planet gets encased in ice.

Our plans this year include more materials, rigid body collisions, and more! But first, what did we do in 2021? Demonstrating planetscaping, atmosphere opacity, and collision improvements added in 2021. Over the course of 2021, we had 3 major updates and 5 minor updates. Splish, Splash, Filling...
