You can finally create humans in the latest version of The Sandbox
By James Gilmour 18 December 2012
Game Name: The Sandbox | Developer: Pixowl | Format: iPhone, iPad | Genre: Simulation
After what seems like an eternity, Pixowl has finally added a human touch to its elemental build-'em-up The Sandbox.
Having already introduced dinosaurs to The Sandbox's pixellated landscape via the last update, the developer has now given players the ability to populate their worlds with Homo sapiens and introduced a new 15-level "Humans Castaway" campaign.
The people created from the new "Humans" element can be manipulated by four magic powders. These powders will shape the destinies and behaviours of your blocky bipedal playthings, turning them into miners, hunters, builders, or woodchoppers.
Once they've established themselves in your electronic Eden, we presume they'll wind up doing what all humans eventually do: start fighting with one another over who has the coolest sofa.
If four professions sounds a bit limiting, don't worry: you can expect Pixowl to add "dozens" more behaviours in the future.
Anyone having difficulty with mastering Pixowl's world-creation tools should check out our step-by-step guide on how to master The Sandbox's elements.
If you've yet to start playing god, then you can download The Sandbox free for iPhone and iPad now.
