Floating Sandbox is a realistic simulation of sinking ships and how a sinking ship reacts to pressure. 2D versions of real-life ships like the Titanic, Poseidon, and Queen Elizabeth II are available for loading into the game. The game is designed with real-world physics in mind to simulate the sinking of some of the world's most famous ships.
Ships that are loaded into the sandbox float, awaiting your destructive commands. Players can flood, smash, or even bomb the ship and observe the damage.
Each ship model has accurate physical attributes like mass, strength, and more. The game's physics engine uses real-world physics when plotting damage to each ship. Once enough damage occurs to the hull, the vessel will begin sinking below the waves.
The concept itself is gruesome, but something is captivating about watching a sinking ship. Each ship in the game reacts differently to the destruction at the player's hand. You can even simulate the actual sinking of the Titanic, watching as the water breaches each bulkhead.
Floating Sandbox is a 2D game with minimal graphics and audio. Each 2D model of the ship is full of accurate details that react to damage.
Smokestacks fall off of the Titanic as it sinks. Explosions come with an impact you can feel as you watch a ship's hull fill with water.
The game isn't winning any design awards, but its graphics are perfectly serviceable.
Sinking various famous ships with different damage types is an incredible amount of fun. The developer went to great lengths to make sure the physics simulation in Floating Sandbox is accurate to real life.
The game properly accounts for spring forces, damper forces, gravity, buoyancy, and even radial and angular forces. When water enters a ship, it follows gravity and pressure gradients, adding its mass to the sinking ship.
Players can import their own ship models to experiment within Floating Sandbox, too. When a ship image is loaded into the game, each pixel becomes a point in the simulated world.
Players can break and repair parts of the ship, slice and smash pieces of the hull, or detonate bombs. Individual points can be frozen to simulate a vessel stuck in the water against something. The result is a fascinating sandbox of gruesome destruction that never ceases to be entertaining.
Floating Sandbox is lots of fun if you have any interest in physics. So many forces come into account that watching just one ship sink may have you hooked forever.
The game is endlessly expansible, with players able to add their items and define materials. Sinking ships and observing the results is fun, but Floating Sandbox is so much more when you create objects.
Think of this game like Kerbal Space Program, but for ship physics rather than space physics.
Floating Sandbox is a 2D realistic ship sinking simulator with hundreds of real ships to sink.
What follows is the official description of Floating Sandbox, from the developers.
This game is a realistic two-dimensional particle system, which uses mass-spring networks to simulate rigid bodies (such as ships) floating in water and exchanging heat with their surroundings. You can punch holes in an object, slice it, apply forces and heat to it, set it on fire, and smash it with bomb explosions. Once water starts rushing inside the object, it will start sinking and, if you're lucky enough, it will start breaking up!
