Project Mimicry lets you play a real-life sandbox game


1:00 PM on 07.08.2011




The Dutch indies at Monobanda have created a true digital sandbox in the most literal sense possible -- one with real sand. Using manual labor, you shape and create an augmented reality landscape that is affected by, and projected on, a box with sand.

Up to four players at a time can use the created world to "control a ball that can roll around, jump and glide through the Mimicry world. Tiny virtual characters roll around in the sandbox. You can build obstacles for them or create a racetrack."

It looks like From Dust with real sand and without the god game elements to crude old me, but the project is certainly not lacking in creativity. Any takers for a box of sand peripheral? What about if they add sandworms and graboids? There you go.

Everyone remembers else Heart.Break(), right? Of course you do, because it was on my "Top 30 indies to look out for in 2013" list! There was very little information on the game at that point, and apparently I thought it woul...more
