Your ultimate source of info on open-world games, sandbox games, tycoon & strategy games, sims and RPGs.

Our database contains a growing collection of titles that offer freedom, strategy and non-linearity.


We love sandbox games. In recent years, largely owing to the success of smash-hit games like Minecraft, freedom in gaming is growing. Sandbox games are becoming more and more mainstream and we think that is awesome! There are even elements of “sandboxness” in triple-A titles like Call of Duty and Assassins Creed. The more freedom that exists for the player in a sandbox game, the more we’ll want to play it. That’s why we set-up Sandbox DB. It’s our way of sharing the great sandbox games we’ve found, to keep abreast of new developments and also to encourage the growth of the genre.
