Modbox: A Physics Based Heaven for HTC Vive

Modbox for HTC Vive

Since we were children, our greatest dream was to be able to have endless time, and of course, the means to take good advantage of it. Nowadays, with virtual reality lurking just about the corner, there might be a solution to the second problem of our childhood.

Meet Modbox—a sandbox, physics based playground—where everything supposedly can happen (I mean, it’s physic’s based. You can’t expect to fly). Modbox is a game coming to HTC Vive in the early days of 2016. With a user friendly interface, and an exceptional system that features many items from our ordinary lives (basketballs, guns, chainsaws,) AllienTrap’s Modbox strives to become your utopian playground, one that danger is not the problem, and your only limit is your imagination.

Sporting an extensive palette of already modeled tools, you can start by testing your wits on usual experiments, like throwing a ball in a basket. However, soon you’ll probably discover the true love behind Modbox. This game gives you the tools to come up with your own creations, based on the primitive shapes. Also, you have the power to change the size of all those shapes and even connect them together to new, random ones.

If you loved Just Cause 3 with its peculiar physics, and you enjoy destroying things just for the fun of it, then welcome to Modbox, the virtual reality experience—we’ve been expecting you.

Moving forward, another great feat of this game is that everything inside it behaves like it should. Glass breaks easily, metal is sturdy, and chainsaws destroys trees in a matter of seconds (I can already picture many chainsaw inflicted experiments coming our way). If you loved Just Cause 3 with its peculiar physics, and you enjoy destroying things just for the fun of it, then welcome to Modbox, the virtual reality experience—we’ve been expecting you.

However, the fun does not end there. The game will have a multiplayer option where your friends can meet you inside the game and help you wreak havoc together. It’s a fun way of bonding with your pals, especially since this game is all about fighting with shields and swords, and tossing balls at them. Even so, the game does seem a bit laggy at times, especially during the multiplayer part of the trailer, and the fact that it is only HTC Vive supported it means that you’ll also have to reserve a whole room for your playthroughs.

The guys behind the recent PS4 success, Apotheon, are sure that you will love spending your time inside Modbox. You can check the first trailer and start coming up with new ideas to destroy/test your imagination. The game will be available at Steam VR before HTC Vive will get released. Also, for all you passionate builders out there, the game will also support Steam Workshop, meaning that you can share you Modbox world for everyone to see and play in it.
