So what is this "game" I talk of? As I mentioned, it's more a simulation. It is a sandbox simulation and I mean that as literary as possible because man, no pile of code ever deserved the title "sandbox" as much as this one.
It's got the mysterious name "Dust" and You get to play with a wide arrange of toys, beginning from actual sand, over to seeds, up to high explosives and fireworks. All those fun things your mommy always took away when you were in an actual sandbox. Except for the sand, of course. Sand is still just sand.
While the graphics are ridicously simple, no music or sound effects present (thats why everybody who plays this game sits there going "BOOOOM! PSSSSHHHH! KAPOOOOOW!") the physics of this game are actually quite good: something explodes or burns, it creates heat, things move away from it due to expanding air. Everything gets whirled around, more things get to the heat source and catch fire... well you get my point.
|Fireworks, Oil and Gundpowder raining down on a concrete bunker with a permanently lit fuse in the middle. Gee, that's not at all dangerous, right?|
|This was bound to happen.|
|You can clearly see the particle movement and heat simulation, indicated by the red, green and blue background.|
Whatever folks. Imma build huge sky scrapers of stone and watch them tumble from the blast of a c4 explosion.
