Universe Sandbox ², the long awaited sequel, is now available for purchase

Get instant access to the Universe Sandbox ² Alpha on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux and pre-order the finished game.

Available for purchase at

While you buy though our website (via the Humble Bundle people), you'll redeem your copy on Steam and the game will appear in your Steam library.

Universe Sandbox ² is in alpha and very much unfinished, but it already blows away the original version with improved physics, climate simulations, material properties, terraforming, and awesome collisions.

We welcome you to join us on this journey as we continue to add and improve the sequel over the next year.

“This is where Universe Sandbox succeeds brilliantly: players experience godly power to create or destroy, while almost unavoidably learning something about the physical properties of our universe.”
87/100 – PC Gamer

“Using the vast range of variables and tools at your disposal you can create some enormously convoluted displays of physics, bending cosmic laws to your will...”
80% – bit-gamer


Create and destroy on a scale you've never imagined with the ultimate space simulator.

Harness the power to create black holes, collide galaxies, and manipulate gravity with just a few clicks. Inspired by the software astronomers use to unlock the mysteries of our universe, never before has astronomy been so interactive or so much fun.

Spawn a massive moon to tear apart Saturn’s rings or launch a rogue star to rip the planets from their orbits around our sun. After unleashing catastrophic destruction, create your own solar system and share it with friends.

Universe Sandbox isn't a game per se; there are no bosses, aims or levels, merely an accurate model of astronomical bodies for you to fiddle with. It's really more of a toy – the virtual equivalent of a configurable orrery, except hugely more complex than any mechanical system.That complexity is one of the key attractions that Universe Sandbox possesses. Using the vast range of variables and tools at your disposal you can create some enormously convoluted displays of physics, bending cosmic laws to your will out of nothing more than a desire to see pretty patterns form on your screen.There are a series of example experiments to help ease you into the level of curiosity that Universe Sandbox requires – each one acting as a tutorial – but the real fun lies in creating your own simulations. The camera is a little fiddly at times, but my biggest complaint is that the simulator doesn’t come with any sound or music. While I appreciate that’s realistic, given the lack of orchestras in the vacuum of space, it would have been nice to have some ambient music quietly twinkling away in the background.Still, it’s hard to get too dissatisfied with Universe Sandbox when you factor in both the fact that it’s a one-man labour of love and that it’s available at a bargain price. If nothing else it offers something uniquely interesting and fun, which is quick to inspire imagination and creativity, even if it lacks the educational aspect that you might expect.

This game is awesome. As an astronomy teacher, I use it to illustrate and enrich my students' curriculum. It works better than any graphing calculator, and I recommend it more highly than my course textbook. The simulator is beautiful and can extrapolate to scales beyond all human imagining with surprising accuracy over long periods of time (graphics permitting). Great Workshop potential, also includes a few trading cards and achievements. It also has a wikipedia overlay for more extensive research on any alien material (pun intended). Very informative and entertaining. Any astrowhiz will easily waste hours with this enticing physics sandbox. Highly reccomended for any learned individual with a penchant for the cosmos, or even anyone who likes space and wants to fling asteroids into Earth and give the planet a ring system, or even two suns.

Destroyed the earth with a sun sized teapot.

I also made the earth orbit around Gabe Newells head.

This is one of those meta-sim-sandbox-edu-tutorial-discovery games that are so common these days, but it's still tough to explain what you can actually DO, if not what it actually IS, so let me try to explain with a brief anecdote.

Years ago, my kids wanted a dog. They begged for some unspecified period of time, until one day we were driving along and saw a 'free puppy' sign at a farm. We stopped, and wound up taking home what the farmer told us was a 'purebred Welsh Olive Hound'. Thing is, when we took it to the vet for shots, we found out it was actually a toaster oven.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Universe Sandbox looks like a game, but it's a lot more like a toaster oven. Everyone should have one, but it won't be fetching you any sticks.

Replaced the sun with a giant human willy.

Also created a black hole called Tyrone. 10/10

If you are into sandbox style simulations, this is the game for you. This game allows you to create different scenarios and even create interesting things in space. The game does seem to be a bit complex in some areas but just because I couldn't get a hang on it, doesnt't mean everyone wont. One of my personal favorite scenarios to play out in it was to simulate the collision of the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxy that is projected to happen in a few billion years.

Graphics: B - Simple simulation model
Sound: B - Interesting sounds
Gameplay: A - Game mechanics are interesting, learning curve
Story: C - Not much of one, just have fun

Very mixed feelings about this game. Bought it since I'm really into astronomy, but it's only fun for about 15 minutes. Then it gets boring. Overall, only buy if you want to download mods so you can add ridiculous objects and make them orbit around Gaben's head, or something.

This game is out of this world (pun intended). It offers a wide variety of physics to be used in the game, such as mass and velocity counter. For only 10 dollars, I think it's money well spent.

Universe Sandbox shouldn't be looked at with the expectation of a game. It's exactly what it says it is, a sandbox on a universal scale, but to be used for teaching and experimentation purposes far more than simply to entertain (though perhaps some may find enjoyment over manipulating galaxies). It does an excellent job at what it attempts, but is hard to recommend to anyone but the most avid space lover for its dry and overly open ended nature.

If you're still unclear what US actually is, you can think of it as playing god with stars and planets in a galaxy of your own design. You're given complete free reign over every aspect of your universe and all that's within it, allowing you to create scenarios that could never occur in reality but nonetheless I'm sure many have wondered what would look like (for example: what if the earth was the size of the sun). It's an intriguing idea with nearly limitless options, but I have to take issue with US for doing a poor job catering to anyone but those who already posses a keen understanding of the cosmos and a fascination with what they hold. Aside from a few tutorial sections that show you a few possible things you can do, you're left to create your own fun, which for some (myself included) doesn't go much farther than shooting a dozen planet size footballs into the sun and seeing what comes of it.

I can't recommend Universe Sandbox to many, but it's not because it's bad or too much along the lines of taking an astronomy class. It knows what it is and gives you all the tools you could want to fool around in a galaxy, testing possible outcomes or teaching others about what exists in the vastness of space, but it will only ever appeal to a niche audience of astrophysicists and those that simply have a deep love of space. It's a tool that gives back whatever you put into it, the problem is just knowing how to use it.

It's like Google Earth on acid! Basically, you can create a lot of things inside a universe and do what you please with them, even if it means destroying the hell out of them. It's pretty much just a toy with no purpose except for entertainment, and that entertainment is fulfillled here. The ultimate God simulator.

It's not really a 'game'. There is no objective, you can't fail, it's not a game. It's a fun little tool that you play with for a bit. If you come into this expecting a game, you're going to be dissapointed. It's just a program where you mess around with solar systems. If you are looking for a 'game', buy something else. If you are looking for a bit of mindless fun to kill some time, buy this.
