Rise of the Sandbox Games

 

 

Cordova, TN; May 13, in the year of our Lord 2014--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is acknowledging the rise of the sandbox games. Not sure what a sandbox game is. It is games like Minecraft, Terraria, Space Engineer, TownCraft and many more. In these games you can manipulate the gaming environment around you. You can pick up the ground, and move it somewhere else. Or in many of these games you can use items to creating brand new items. This is referred to as crafting. Think of being a kid and playing in a sandbox. These games have the same kind of feel to them. Just infinitely more complex.

Family Friendly Gaming recently denoted indie games have become a trend. In fact even large developers are trying to get in on the indie action. Yes it is a bit of an oxymoron, but they see money being made, and want some. Other companies have seen what Mojang, Re-logic and others have done. They make deep, interesting, and player adaptable environments. Players decide what to build in their worlds. Maybe they want a castle, or to duplicate a Pokemon town. Many sandbox games give players the freedom to exercise their own creativity. And they are creating, just like God did with our world.

Sandbox games are generally friendlier to families. They are more age inclusive than many games that are called AAA titles by worldly gaming sites. They encourage players to use their imaginations. Some of these sandbox games have been used in village building, and can teach lessons in physics as well as the ecology. There are numerous positives when it comes to sandbox games that families can get behind. There are questions as well. Will the market become flooded as more companies release sandbox video games? What kinds of innovative and educational uses will there be for sandbox games in the future? How long will sandbox games remain a trend?

God bless,
