What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While it's a very silly game, it's also a solemn attempt at a combat game and I hope it comes through. Although I've been working on it for a year, I'd like people to experience Sandbox Showdown and really have fun with what there already is to offer. Being an Independant Developer, I'd like to hear out the players and see what they enjoy about it, what could add to the experience, and what Heroes or Enemy Types they'd like to see. Early Access also will allow me to introduce Sandbox Showdown to public and allow others to participate in the development. I have big dreams for this game and I hope a public setting will help it come to full development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 Months - 2 Years.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“I'd like to add additional Hero Types and Enemy Types, along with fully customizable level options. Although most of the features are in place, I will fine tune the process for players and allow more ease of use.

There is currently a leveling system for each individual Hero, allowing them to buy more powerful perks in the in-game shop, and I'd like to expand this leveling system to include a lot more rewards.

Finally, although a small amount of spoken voice-lines are in the game, I'd like to have each hero have full voice-over work, completed by me and my chosen associates, or if the opportunity arises, join with another company to finish the work. I think this will add a lot of fun to the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Sandbox Showdown has 9 Hero Types to choose from, and 9 Different Enemy Types to battle against, with selection of one of 4 Different Battlegrounds. I plan to add more enemies in the coming weeks. It is heavily physics based with very goofy gameplay, and still has many bugs. Heroes flail around and accidently lose their footing after a jump, and enemies stumble off of each other. The enemies use a bit of strategy, but the addition of unforeseen events (like catching fire, tripping over a dead enemy, or accidently stepping into a trap) makes the combat completely random and fun.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“For the length of early access, besides temporary Sales or Discount periods, I'd like the price to remain the same. There will be additional content added during the development with no additional cost (towards the final product). Based on consumer interest, after Early Access more content may be added and the price may increase (No more than $5 additional).”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Opening the public to the current development of Sandbox Showdown allows me to gauge their reaction on the Gameplay and address concerns they may have about its flaws. I plan on releasing this game in an enjoyable format while it's in Early Access, and will talk to the customers through the Community Groups and other proper channels. While not currently active, I plan my developer website ( to become active as I go through Early Release.”

The Heroes

Each Hero has a different mix of abilities to match their genre, such as bashes, dodges, and defensive blocks.
Play as …

  • The Soldier: A classic take-no-prisoners, trigger-happy Hero from your standard shooter games, has good range and is all out of bubble-gum.
  • The Knight: For Honor, for Victory! Or For Fun! The medieval warrior brandishes a big two-handed sword, and a swift arming shortsword.

  • The Pirate: Just searching for some splendid booty now and again, Argo the Pirate has a deadly sabre, and if things get too out of hand, he can use an off-Hand Pirate Flintlock.
  • The Wizard: With a deadly mix of Flame and Lighning attacks, the Wizard is explosive but a bit on the squishy side.
  • The Dwarf: Hailing from the Mines of Shortan'Wide, Gimply the Dwarf pummels people with his giant blessed hammer.
  • The Ninja: Fast, agile, attacks with quick devasting lunge-kicks and roundhouses. If your enemy strays too far, pick them off with a few well aimed shurikens!
  • The Bulk: A giant mass of a failed science experiment, the Bulk is nearly unstoppable and clobbers most foes with ease, and can fling them around the battleground with ease.
  • and MORE TO COME!

More updates will be released as I come closer to Launch. More Enemies, Vehicles, and definitely new Heroes ....
