What makes my game unique?

The Sandbox 2 is a very unique pixel world creation game on mobile & tablets. The game offer stunning pixel art graphics, large worlds that go beyond the device screen, over 150 elements to play with and interact with physics and new game maker mode with controllable heroes. We want to build the first mobile game that will serve as a platform & community for User Generated Contents, where players can make and share their own creations, including Platformer games, Pixel Art, Chiptunes Music, Physics Simulations...

Why could my game win an award?

We believe that we should win the Grand Prix this year because we're an indie development team, who has put a lot of love and passion into creating the most original pixel world creation and game maker game ever! We took risks by innovating in gameplay and since the first The Sandbox launched in 2012, we have grown our own community of players (over 715k fans on Facebook) with The Sandbox, reaching 16M installs and over 1.5M players creations. With The Sandbox 2, we are going further in empowering players with creativity tools, keeping the original gameplay and bringing a very modern and slick touch, so that anyone can draw or create very easily with even more possibilities! Thank you for your consideration!
