What if a game gave you an entire galaxy-sized sandbox to play within? That’s exactly what Universe Sandbox brought to the table when it first launched in 2008. Now, its much-anticipated sequel is out.
Currently in Early Access, Universe Sandbox ² is an even greater space simulator with room for all sorts of creativity. You can terraform planets, supernova a star, collide planets, and much more. Of course, destruction on a massive scale is often the most fun to simulate.
If you’re not into “creating” your own play, then keep an eye out as missions and objectives are planned as the Early Access build develops. Universe Sandbox ² runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and is available for $24.99 on Steam.
