Before jumping into how sandbox games are written, let’s explore what the word “sandbox” actually means to us. Conceptually speaking, the word sandbox may conjure up the vision of that square box filled with sand at the local park. As children, the most fascinating thing about sand was its malleability. You can just dip your hands into it and, with a little water, begin shaping whatever comes to mind. The sudden removal of all barriers to sculpting any shape, or even the ability to destroy it, is what makes it so enthralling. You’ve got a toy that offers full freedom to your play.
