Sandbox (95)

The sandbox genre includes games that offer users an open, non-linear game world in which they can move freely and create elements without having to follow strict instructions or objectives. These games often encourage players' creative freedom and allow them to explore the game world according to their own ideas, construct buildings, collect resources, trade or even create their own stories.
