This month’s Show and Tell highlights Sandspiel, a web-based falling sand game created by Max Bittker. In Sandspiel, different organic elements interact as they would in the real world, and you can examine what happens when putting lava on ice, or blowing wind on oil.
With Sandspiel you have full power over fire, water, fungus, wind, sand, and seeds. Use this omnipotence to layer the elements and create your own drawing that can be saved to Sandspiel’s online gallery.
Especially for this Show and Tell we created the hashtag #specialspecial with Max Bittker. By searching this in Sandspiel’s gallery, you can find art made by the extended Special Special community, and add to it yourself! Hurry to the sandbox!
You can also follow Sandspiel on Twitter for more art and updates.
Bittker was inspired to create Sandspiel from dan-ball.jp's Powder Game, which he played growing up.
Enjoy the work:
